Rum N Riddim
— 8 Nov 2017, 10:26
Something, or rather, someONE of absolute legendary proportions is headed to Boxpark Croydon this month.
It's that time of year again; that time when we're all amazed by how early it gets dark in the evenings, and by the fact we've all had to dig out our 'big coat' to brace the colder weather. But, unless you've been nursing the flu or you're already snowed under with Christmas preparations, you may have noticed that we recently dropped one of the biggest line ups in Boxpark history.
On Saturday 25 November, we're bringing the Rum'N'Riddim all day party to Boxpark Croydon, for a one-day spectacular and a line up like no other.
If you can believe it, Shy FX has been on the scene for over two decades, but, from his breakout track 'Original Nuttah' through to his most recent hit 'Chocolate', the man has never lost his edge. 'Shake Your Body' is one of the greatest songs of all time and I won't hear otherwise - don't make me fight you! This icon in British music will be headlining Rum'N'Riddim with a little help from some famous friends and, to say we're excited, would be a bit of an understatement.
We're excited for good reasons too. Not only will Shy FX, himself, be gracing the Boxpark stage, this month, but so will Donae'o (I just heard you sing the intro to 'Party Hard'; don't pretend that you didn't), and Crazy Cousinz. The very same Crazy Cousinz who gave us 'Do You Mind', the UK Funky track immortalised in Drake's 'One Dance'. These British behemoths will also be joined by D Double E, Benny Page, Kenny Allstar and many, many more!
There's no denying that this event is going to be huge. If you're one of these north-of-the-river types who thinks everywhere down south is an absolute mission then it's high time you had a word with yourself. Boxpark Croydon is located directly next to East Croydon station and features an extensive calendar of events for people of all ages. We've even had baby raves; raves for babies, no joke. We've had Stormzy on the main stage, DJ Luck & MC Neat see us into the new year and So Solid Crew switch on our Christmas lights. We don't play around.
Rum'N'Riddim tickets are flying fast, so grab yours while you still can and don't forget to check out the full line up! We look forward to hosting you from 2pm on Saturday 25 November at Rum'N'Riddim, Boxpark Croydon!
