Popes of Chillitown

High priests of London’s ska/dub/punk scene, Popes of Chillitown have been making a racket since 2011. Hip-hop, reggae, punk, a sprinkling of metal – you name it, they’ve chucked it into the ska pan and cooked it up into a tasty back-catalogue consisting of 3 albums, 2 EPs, and countless tours, shows and festival sets. In fact, their most recent album Work Hard, Play Hard, See you in the Graveyard was heralded as “the best new ska-punk album” of 2018 (Scootering Magazine). Combining incisive lyrics with a riotous stage presence and propensity for having a bloody good time, they’ve graced the likes of Boomtown Fair and Manchester Punk Festival with their presence and now – watch out – they’re making their irrepressible way to the Hidden Valley. For fans of Sonic Boom Six, skanking like your life depends on it, and raucous live sets. Make your way to the Orchard Stage to receive a blessing from these Popes…
