Start Date

20th Aug 2011


The Waverley, Marine Drive West, Bognor Regis, West Sussex


Planetman and The Internationalz, Rattlin Bone, Claude Bourbon


Headliners, Planetman and the Internationalz make a welcome return to Nyodema.

East-London roots reggae band formed in 2001 by singer, song-writer, guitarist Planetman. In his own words: “I’m a Planetman, a man of this planet, and all people are my people, and everywhere is my home land!”

“Planetman and the Internationalz prove conclusively that pure groove still has a place in the hearts and souls of man. Planet is a singer consumed with the passion of his art. He and his band live and breathe for live performance, and their communal spirit echoes throughout their songs – all of which call out in perfect harmony for equality, peace, love and understanding. This is a good-time band who will have any festival crowd up on its feet, shoes kicked off and toes dancing…”

“They certainly did that in 2007 at Nyodema’s first festival and I’m looking forward to kicking my shoes off and dancing on 20th August” Kathryn, Nyodema

The festival will open with the lively rock ‘n’ roll sounds of Slim Jim and the Wildcards. Other delights include, the weird and the wonderful swamp jazz of Rattlin Bone, the outstanding medieval/spanish blues guitarist Claude Bourbon and delta blues guitarist Slim Lightfoot. The festival would not be complete without the Nyodema African Drummers bringing you tradional West African rhythms and Nyodema’s World Community Choir with a collection of songs from Africa, Europe and America including traditional gospel and a spine-tingling chant from deep in the Congo.

The hilarious Stewart Nicols will be our compere for the day.

While the event is free you will have every opportunity to make a donation. All proceeds go to our children’s health and education projects in The Gambia. We’d like to thank The Gambia Experience and Inch Cape for sponsoring the event as well as all the artist and volunteers and of course all of you too!

We look forward to a wonderful day.
