Boom Shakalaka Festival

The opening night of the Boom Shakalaka festival is all about Dancehall and the Balkans as Sanjin & Youthman take over the mbar terrace stage.


On the opening night of the Boom Shakalaka festival we focus on music from Jamaica and from the Balkans. Weird combination you say? Well, our special guests from Sweden, Sanjin & Youthman have successfully combined these two traditions and we guarantee you their performance will tear the mbar terrace into pieces. And if that’s not enough, our own Boom Shakalaka boys are there to back them up. Both Emil and Hermanni have years of experience djing both Balkan beats and Dancehall and they have released numerous tunes in both genres. This combination is surely to result in one of the hottest outdoor dance parties of this summer.

And there’s more. When the terrace closes at 2 o’clock, the party gets even hotter inside where DJ Resupekka takes over the controls. Resupekka is one of premiere forces behind the success of dancehall in Finland today. His career started in Lahti with the legendary Pouta Sound, responsible for making Lahti the reggae capital of Finland. Currently Resupekka is living in Turku, where he is active with Black Bear Sound and produces the Turku Sound Check Festival among other things. Resupekka also plays parties all over Finland and Europe. Expect a world class selection, combined with uplifting mic action that will keep you moving until the early morning.
