Deep Medi and Teachings in Dub are back with the third installment of their almighty Weekender, where the worlds of dub and dubstep collide for a two-night celebration of soundsystem culture at Trinity Centre. This year’s event takes place on 24 & 25 November and also marks 10 years of Teachings in Dub, so it’s going to be an extra special party.

Born out of a chance encounter on the Eurostar, Deep Medi head Mala and Teachings in Dub founder (and one half of Dubkasm) DJ Stryda decided to bring the two powerhouses together under one roof at Trinity Centre three years ago – marking Deep Medi’s first party in Bristol.
Since then they’ve curated the heaviest lineps in Bristol’s annual calendar and this year is no exception. Powered by Void soundsystem, Friday sees Bukez Finezt, Compa, Commodo, Dubkasm, Egoless, Goth Trad, Jack Sparrow, Kahn, Kaiju and Mala bring us through 10pm till 5am.

Saturday follows up strong with a two hour set from soundsystem legend Aba Shanti-I, an old school set from Mala, Dubkasm with Solo Banton, OBF with Sr Wilson and Gorgon Sound.
Deep Medi founder and dubstep figurehead Mala tells Nitelife: ‘The team at Trinity and the good people of Bristol always turn up… Bringing positive energy and good vibes. We feel so welcome in the city. This year marks our 3rd Weekender celebrating soundsystem culture with an extra special 10 years of Teachings in Dub on Saturday – massive shout out to Stydra and Digi.
‘Neuron Pro Audio will bring in their mighty Void Sound System and all artists will come loaded with dubplates and exclusives. Tickets go fast… so grab them quick. See you in the dance. One Love.’

Dubkasm’s DJ Stryda, who has brought Bristol 10 years of Teachings in Dub nights as well as helping create The Weekender, says:
‘Those performing at the Weekender often view it as a highlight of the musical calendar. This enthusiasm is infectious and definitely transcends to the audience during the event. The vibe is always so positive and it’s a great way to round off the year. The fact that we will be celebrating a decade of Teachings in Dub makes things extra special – can’t wait for a whole weekend of sound system pressure!’
