Globally respected DJ David Rodigan’s new memoir ‘Rodigan: My Life in Reggae’ shares the unlikely story of his life: an Army Sergeant’s Major’s son from the English countryside who has followed every twist in the evolving sounds of Jamaica as a constant champion of Reggae music across continents and generations. To celebrate the memoir’s publication, he will be joining DJ Tayo in conversation in the Main Hall. The Lantern will then host a one-off exclusive DJ set as David narrates through his vintage dubplate collection, followed by DJ sets from Smith & Mighty and The Blast DJs.
Signed copies of the book will be available to buy on the night.
