Kicking it off will be Richie 1250 (Stone Love) vs Miss Goldie (Boss Action) before Kilmarnock Steve brings out his collection to go head on with Rick Howe (ABC RN). Jesse I (Babylon Burning) will keep the party vibes coming with Solomon, Mohair Slim (Blue Juice) will face off with Fabulous Fez and Lady Erica (fresh off the plane from Jamaica) will take us out with Stryka D (formerly Break The Chain).

Exclusive, limited edition Jamaica Jump-Up t-shirts for sale on the night plus drink specials with a twist of Jamaican flava at the bar. 9pm until 3am. This’ll be a big one – get down early to join the party and don’t miss out!
