Culture Blast will be taking over the small stage over at Mitcham Carnival on June 14th this year. With the stage compered by award-winning comedian Bob Slayer, DJ WrongTom will be performing a live set prior to his duties at the Glastonbury Festival this year with reggae band Mighty Leap. Tom will also be dropping a DJ set with the Wreck-It-Up Crew powered by Unit 137's huge sound system. This beautiful hand-built sound system hails from Lewisham. Expect plenty of exclusive sound system music, including dubs from DJs Hylu, and Sleepy Time Ghost. Bahareque are a six-piece Latin band and will lend a unique South American vibe to the occasion in light of the England game being played later that night. There will also be arts and crafts activities for children and families.
