Croatia Countdown: Reggae’s DJ-Tastemaker David Rodigan Talks Outlook Festival

VIBE is heading to Outlook Festival 2013 for a large dose of the best bass music, reggae, hip-hop, garage and beyond. “Croatia Countdown” is your go-to resource for insider 411 from this year’s elite offering of dance music scions leading up to the storied and vibrant music-a-thon.

Break out the plum rakia cocktails, enjoy a beautiful break, hold your breath for those breakdowns, dance freely to breakbeats…It all goes down August 29th – September 2nd (plus a special amphitheatre kick-off show with The Original Wailers on August 28th), under the Croatian sun with the scenic seascape of Puna serving as the backdrop.

This Week on the Decks: Dancehall And Reggae DJ/Tastemaker David Rodigan
