Brisbane Serenades –  Heavy Congress

The bass is coming and it's gonna be BIG!

Imagine... five crews made up of DJs, MCs and live performance. Each wield colossal custom speaker stacks, bombarding the audience with bass, in a bid for the crowd’s seal of approval. It’s here! 

Heavy Congress is an afternoon steeped in Soundsystem lore and culture — a movement that spread from its Jamaican, Colombian and Afro-Caribbean roots to sprout subcultures across the globe, from England to Australia. 

Whether it's reggae and protest music, classic dub, electro and techno, or champeta Africana pumping from the intricately designed speaker stacks, it’s gonna be big!

Featuring Heartical Hi Powa, Housewife’s Choice, Champion Sound, 420 Sound, Boom Boom Sound
