Subtrax is back at it again this upcoming Bank Holiday weekend with a stellar line up consisting of the kings of hip hop The Sugarhill Gang and Stroud Fringe favourites Stroud Block Party.

The American group are widely known for bringing hip hop its first mainstream success with the smash hit Rapper’s Delight in 1979. The track remains one of the best known, most quoted and most loved hip hop tracks in history.

Started by local DJs Dubbu and Stroud Calling, Stroud Block Party are a key highlight in the Stroud Fringe programme.

Their parties bring the spirit of New York’s five boroughs to Stroud’s Five Valleys.

With no Stroud Fringe this year, this will be the first of three special events in collaboration with Stroud Block Party.

The Sugar Hill Gang, Stroud Subscription Rooms, May 27.
