Cuba Dupa 2020
March 28th – 29th
Cuba Street Precinct

Radio Active present the Radio Active Upper Cuba SoundSphere at this years Cuba Dupa.

Filling the Abel Smith to Kelvin Grove corridor. Envisaged as an electronic music hub, it’s anchored by some of Cuba Street’s most notable bars, galleries, and creative businesses.
Laundry Bar presents their well-loved house and electronic programme with DJs turning the footpath into a dance floor. Across the street, the contemporary art gallery {Suite} will transform their courtyard into an oasis for fans of funk, disco, house and techno, with DJ sets from 4pm until late. Drum and bass is covered by the folks at Breaking Beats, who will host a carpark party at Toi Poneke Arts Centre. And audiences can dance the weekend away at the Tuatara Roots Garden, with a huge lineup of DJs pumping roots and dub through the Sounds Almighty Sound System.

The RadioActive SoundSphere continues with a batucada fix at the Tuatara Third Eye, where Latin American and samba bands converge at the Samba HQ. Over at HeyDay Beer Company, the sounds include live disco, funk and soul bands, and across the street will be a chaotic collection of 80’s floor fillers and 90’s rave hits at Shamblelands. To round out the sonic goodness, Limbic Resonance take over the Vancy carpark in Abel Smith Street with DJs and drinks by Black Dog Brewery.
