We are pleased to announce that this year’s festival headliners will be Bristol’s finest purveyors of sweet street soul music, Laid Blak.
“Whether you are white or black, slim or fat….don’t worry ’bout that – just make your body rock… non stop” – MC Joe Peng
Well known for stealing the show at festivals all over the country, this summer Laid Blak will bring their unique ‘street soul’ sound to Redfest’s main stage for a show that’ll get everyone moving and smiling! Charismatic vocalists backed by musical dexterity rooted in urban reggae, jazz, funk, soul and soaked in good vibes… they bring a diverse, eclectic sound and an infectious energy that anybody can relate to. You won’t want to miss it and you won’t be able to keep still! Get a taste and get yourself in the mood on their Facebook page or listen to their latest album Red & Blak.
Not only do we love Laid Blak for their sound but we also love them for their devotion to charity events for the likes of Oxfam, Greenpeace and Kamapala, which fits right in with our sustainability theme for this year’s festival.
Oh, and did we mention that these lads are so local they even filmed the video for their single “Woah” in the barber’s just around the corner from St George Park? Check it out…
