Heartical Hi-Powa feat Stryka D & Macky Banton

Heartical Hi-Powa’s own Stryka D and champion bubbler MC – Macky Banton join forces to nice up the lawn at the Pleasure Garden with a pure undiluted reggae and dub soundsystem style set. Stryka D built Melbourne’s original dub reggae soundsystem to forward the music in its traditional medium. Heartical Hi-Powa leads the way and demonstrates how sound system culture transcended from its Jamaican roots to a now global movement and reached Australia. This year they are celebrating 10 years of their Dub Club events from Melbourne to Byron. Macky Banton is arguably one of the most travelled soundsystem MCs and is known for chatting the microphone for UK based Jah Tubby’s and Iration Steppas. Spending most of his time travelling from country to country, he is a true ambassador for the music and culture worldwide.


"Something like a mixture of Rainbow Serpent, Glastonbury and Burning Man, there was so much happening at The Pleasure Garden."

– Beat Magazine Live Review

"The Pleasure Garden if you will indulge me, is like a trip through the wardrobe to Narnia or similarly down the rabbit hole to Wonderland..."
