Legendary reggae innovator Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry will be touching down in Bristol for Simple Things 2015, pairing his inimitable stage presence with a full live band as he delves into his expansive back catalogue of cosmic dub excursions.
Following the massive addition of JME & Skepta a couple of weeks ago we are pleased to announce that one of grime’s most widely revered collectives will be joining the lineup: Ruff Sqwad. The crew will be joined by Lit City Trax founder and Future Brown mainstay J-Cush for a rare performance outside of London.
Further live additions include Newcastle-based Slime, smoked-out psyched pop from Stones Throw signee Mild High Club, cacophonous Bristol outfit Spectres and Giant Swan the menacing noise-punk of Sex Swing.
On the DJ front Hodge and Tessela have just been added for a marathon four hour back-to-back session. Rub-n-Tug co-founder and NY disco extraordinaire Eric Duncan will also be joining proceedings with the Futureboogie cohort, whilst Berlin mainstay Darwin makes her Bristol debut. South-West mainstays The Blast DJs round out the announcement with their trademark mix of grime, jungle and bass.
