Who’s That? BoomTown 2014 #1

As I said yesterday, there’s a few names on our first BoomTown Fair announcement who will more than likely be new to most of the UK Festival crowd. So here’s a little introduction to a few of them with more to follow before the next announcement.

La Selva Sur

Already put these guys from Seville in my Top 10 albums for 2013. With their mix of Gypsy, Swing, Reggae, Ska and Latin vibes they’re a perfect band for BoomTown. They shall be playing both on the Town Centre stage and on our new Pirate / Gypsy stage in OldTown.

Russkaja

Bonkers Gypsy Punk or “Russian Turbo Polka Metal” as they prefer to call it, from this group made up of Russians, Ukrainians and Austrians. They shall be playing both on the Town Centre stage and on our new Pirate / Gypsy stage in OldTown.

The WooHoo Revue

As well as The Cat Empire and Dub FX, we have this crazy bunch of Aussies who mix up Gypsy and Swing and come highly recommended live. They also have a remix album out on Ragtime Records, a great label run by C@ In The H@ and Tom from Electric Swing Circus. The shall also be playing on our new Pirate / Gypsy stage and we might even fit in a Remix set in The Ballroom.

Plus here’s a little mix that the guys at Radio BoomTown put together.
