The latest fest to add some names to its line-up is Mantua, the two-day arts and music jam in Co Roscommon. There’s a live stage, an Alphabet Set stage and the Rootical stage with more sound systems and bass than they’ve ever experienced in the west.

Acts worth catching include The Skatalites, Ten Past Seven, Wiggle, Super Extra Bonus Party (really digging their album at the mo’), Digital Mystikz (great, great track on the new Soul Jazz “Box Of Dub” compilation), Decal, Ambulance, Jah Shaka, Brother Culture and dozens more.

We need more festivals like Mantua methinks….
