Sunday 9th October / Carnival Arts Centre (Bar) /
Originally formed in 2011 under the name Ting & Ra & the Iries, they supported artits such as Zion Train, Dreadzone and The Toasters to name a few, as well as playing festivals such as Alchemy and Solfest. In early 2013, they underwent a line-up change and it was there that Easydread was born. Easydread have since played at the likes of One Love Reggae Festival, The Bulldog Bash and Skalloween, as well as supporting Gentleman's Dub Club and Kuenta I Tambu.
Easydread combine sounds drawn from a range of influences, from reggae and ska, to soul, punk and rap. They seamlessly blend powerful political imagery with sweet harmonies and heavy grooves that will get you thinking as well as skanking.
