Dub Pistols confirmed to headline Beautiful Alice Festival

17880314_1648981332076155_5181189554600101712_oDub Pistols are very proud to announce they will be headlining this years Beautiful Alice Festival 2017
and help to bring awareness to this fantastic charity that takes place on June 3rd in St Albans

All Know the way, but few actually walk it


Tragically, at the end of 2014, our Beautiful Alice (19) – and her wonderful friend Summer (21) – were cruelly taken from us in a terrible accident that could, and should, have been prevented. They were coming home to us in just 4 days, having spent the previous 10 weeks volunteering – through the government backed International Citizen Service – in an impoverished township in South Africa. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

We are fighting to prevent such tragedies from happening again and are now working closely with the UK government’s Department for International Development (through Voluntary Service Overseas and ICS), and with international experts, to improve safety standards for young volunteers abroad and to increase worldwide awareness of rip currents. Our loss is unbearable but we are trying to find the courage to keep going. One of the ways we are doing this is by raising money to support some of the projects that Alice felt so passionately about in her short – but wonderful – life.

Alice worked on several projects supporting local, needy communities in both South Africa and Cambodia. She was a fierce campaigner for human and animal rights and fought injustice where ever she found it. Alice loved music, dancing and sunshine. She described her favourite festival – The Secret Garden Party – as ‘a little piece of heaven on earth’.

We have organised our own festival to honour Alice and all that she stood for. Following the huge success of our event last year, we are proud to be hosting Beautiful Alice Festival 2017 – on June 3rd in St Albans, Herts, UK. The event is being held on private farm land and we are hoping for around 2000 people to join us to celebrate Alice’s colourful life in a way that would make Alice proud.

All profits will go to support charities that Alice believed in, both in the UK and abroad – including the organisation in Cambodia, The Future of Khmer Children, who we are actively working with and where we have already been able to provide funding for a whole new classroom, essential repairs and maintenance to existing buildings, supplies at the school and a clean water well for local villagers.

We have had hugely generous offers of help and expert assistance pouring in, including a fabulous line up – artists and performers have offered their services for free and everyone on site will be making a donation to our charities. We are confident that our Beautiful Alice Festival will be an amazing day and will be the foundation for us to build on in the difficult years ahead.

There are two ways of spreading light: To be the candle or the mirror that reflects it…

Thank you so much for helping us to continue to keep Alice’s light shining brightly in any way you can, and do get in touch if you would like any further information.

Alice’s mum – Suzie, and Alice’s cousins – Joe and Adam. XXX

REVIEW: Dub Pistols at Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea

REVIEW: Dub Pistols at Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea

17522650_10212708248967832_3350252173304849657_nThe clocks went forward, the sea rolled back, and in a hot, steamy venue, time stood still.

London’s Dub Pistols gave a brief history of reggae, ska, rap and hip-hop, cunningly interweaving punk sensibilities to a hungry house.

Punk scruffy and natty sharp, the band worked the crowd to a roaring mass for a frantic two hours – and the rest.

With a special guest appearance by Rodney P, one of the founders of UK hip-hop, they commanded the audience to ‘bounce’ – and bounce the party crowd did.

Alongside their hard skanking originals were a few covers, such as a rootsy reworking of The Stranglers’ Peaches and a furiously-paced Gangsters, of The Specials fame.

The superb touch of a Rico Rodriguez-style trombonist lent the band a vibe straight out of Jamaica’s Studio One. The skilful use of ‘toasting’ the forerunner of rap, of high profile in the mid-70s, was a joy on the senses.

Truly deep sea bass shook the internal organs, while outbursts of drum ‘n’ bass rolls completed this compelling time travel lesson – from a 70s inner city punk party to sweeping vistas of the dance scene – the Dub Pistols do what no other band can. Revel in the future vintage.
