Facebook Event CHANGE OF DATE: THIS SHOW WILL NOW BE HAPPENING ON SUNDAY 6TH OCTOBER. ORIGINAL TICKETS STILL VALID
Hailing from Bristol, Hotsteppas are an energetic 8-piece Reggae band who always deliver an exciting live show. Originally formed by three Reggae Soundsystem crews - Hotsteppas offer a Dub infused, Funk inspired Roots Reggae sound.
Established in late 2016, the band have quickly gained momentum through supporting the likes of The Wailers, The Mouse Outfit, Mungo’s Hifi, Katchafire, Gentleman's Dub Club, Black Roots, Macka B, Chainska Brassika and The Hempolics. Hotsteppas have already built a keen fan-base and have launched their ascent in the Reggae world by performing at many UK music festivals, including Boomtown, Secret Garden Party and One Love.
"The best new band I've heard in years"
- Earl Gateshead
Smiley & The Underclass
Smiley & The Underclass are a punky reggae noise from London via. Japan, the Uk and the Caribbean. Formed in a caravan below a motorway in 2014, they quickly captured the hearts of the underground scene with their chaotic and incendiary live shows put together in squats and disused venues across the capital.
Releasing their debut album in 2017 (Rebels Out There, recorded at Mick Jones of The Clash's studio), they've spent 2018 smashing up venues from Japan to Europe to the UK, including sold out shows from Tokyo to London and packed out tents at Boomtown, Shambala and Green Gathering to name a few. Mind-melting guitars collide with razor-sharp lyrics and crushing baselines to move your mind, body and soul till they're lying knackered on the roadside. The Underclass energy carries a new sound to unite all punk rockers and roots rebels of the modern era.
The urgency is real. With planetary chaos on the cards and social unrest all-over, Smiley & The Underclass are the perfect soundtrack for these times. All you have to do is tune in...
