THE SKINTS

Saturday, May 25 | 4:10 - 4:35 PM
Festival Main Stage

The Skints are a four-piece reggae band from London. Described by Clash Music as “the torchbearers for modern British reggae music.” Describing their own sound as “music from Jamaica in a London style.” The Skints mix reggae, ska and dub with touches of grime and hip-hop; a contemporary style that draws as much from the streets of the UK’s capital as it does from the Caribbean.

Playing hundreds of shows since 2007, The Skints have had a steady rise from the UK underground. They brought their own rays of sunshine to festivals over Europe and beyond. The Guardian confirming that The Skints “brought the house down” at 2014’s Reading Festival.
