Electro-dub pioneers to headline at Hideaway
Published 23/06/14



ORGANISERS of this year’s Hideaway Festival have announced their headline act for the Saturday night — Dreadzone.

The electro-dub pioneering band formed in 1993 when the ex-drummer of Big Audio Dynamite Greg Roberts teamed up with Tim Bran. The duo was soon joined by bassist Leo Williams and keyboardist Dan Donovan, also formerly of Big Audio Dynamite, completing the group’s first line-up.

The band opened the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury in 1994 and began to bring their blend of electro, dub and reggae to a wider audience, going on to chart seven Top 60 singles including their Top 20 hit Little Britain.

They are still going strong after two decades, and last year they celebrated 20 years in the game with the release of their seventh studio album Escapades which was recorded at Mick Jones’ London studios and co-produced by original Dreadzone member and co-founder Tim Bran.

The current line-up includes Greg Dread, original bassmaster Leo Williams, MC Spee, reggae vocalist Earl 16, Chris Compton on guitar and Bazil on technology.

Festival spokesman Caroline Bullock said: “Hit records, critical acclaim and a huge, devoted fan base are theirs, due in part to their utterly storming live shows.

“As well as live favourites from their back catalogue the band will be showcasing new tracks from Escapades.”

• The Hideaway Festival takes place this year at Fawley Hill from Friday to Sunday, August 8 to 10. The line-up also includes Eddie and the Hot Rods, Alabama3, Republica and Megan Henwood. For tickets visit www.hideawayfestival.com.
