This event has been and gone.
King Prawn blend elements of punk, hardcore, metal, ska, dub, reggae, and hip hop into their music, which they dub wildstyle. Since their formation in 1993, they were subject to critical acclaim and were nominated for the Best New British Band category at the Kerrang! Awards in 1998, and then again under the Spirit of Independence category in 2000. Before their split in 2003, King Prawn toured regularly with a diverse range of bands, varying from hardcore to traditional and 2 Tone ska bands. The band confirmed their reformation in 2012, playing festivals and a club tour in 2013 featuring a brass section but without bassist Babar Luck.

Popes of Chillitown
Taking all the best bits of classic 2-tone and modern ska-punk, throwing them in a blender with dub, drum & bass grooves and enough energy to power a small city are Popes of Chillitown. A six piece Ska/Dub/Punk band from London who have been rampaging through the UK scene for the last few years like an unstoppable grooving, skanking juggernaut. "More infectious than Ebola, it is almost impossible not to want to skank, jump, shake or wiggle when you listen to these guys."

Riskee & the Ridicule
Riskee and The Ridicule formed in Kent, The Garden Of England, when frontman Scott Picking, aka Riskee, happened upon his musical counterpart in Jimbo Aglony on lead guitar. The rhythm section soon arrived with David Thomas (Bass) and Matt Verrell (Drums), plus recently adding Jordan Mann on guitars and backing vocals and Riskee and The Ridicule became a powerhouse of a genre-mixing-pot. Combining politically-charged Grime, hardcore and dash of pop-punk, the band found that they were able to collaborate and produce something fresh without ever sounding confused.
