Check out the 8th installment of this years Redfest. This year the KINGS of ragga metal SKINDRED headlining our main stage on Friday 25th July, who will be joined by MOBO winners Krept & Konan, London boys TOY, and Young Kato, who are currently on tour with You Me at Six.
Skindred are veritable festival veterans and famed for their intense live performances, we have absolutely no doubt that Friday night is going to GO OFF.
Skindred's Benji Webbe: 'As ambassadors of British music Skindred are more than buzzed to be invited along to headline Red "DRED" fest. All the boys in the band have enjoyed playing in Surrey and this is another chance for us to stamp down power in front of British music fans. We ain't fucking about Redfest, You're GETTING IT!'
South London hip hop duo Krept & Konan are Casyo "Krept" Johnson and Karl "Konan" Wilson, and winners of the 2013 'Best Newcomers' MOBO award.
We also welcome indie rock band Peace to our main stage as our Saturday headliners. Having received critical acclaim from publications such as The Guardian and NME in 2012, comparing them to bands like The Maccabees and Foals, Worcester quartet Peace went on to be nominated for Radio 1's 'Sound of 2013', and had Top 20 success with their 2013 album 'In Love'.
Also joining us with be Landudno boys Catfish and the Bottlemen. Playing loud, explosive, sexy rock and roll songs full of guitars and energy, CATBM took part in Radio 1's Future Festival at the beginning of the year, and have been wowing audiences up and down the UK.
