The Activators

The Activators are an 11-piece band whose eclectic style transcends Ska, Reggae, Celtic, Punk and Dub, even venturing into Balkan folk and Tango! The Activators have received acclaim for their sensational and chaotic live shows. Their songs have a political edge and depth, yet maintain an immediacy that makes them irresistible to live audiences.

Their energy, style and liking for utter mayhem has led to them becoming regulars on the festival circuit in the UK and in Europe. The band has headlined the Avalon Café Stage at The Glastonbury Festival, China Town CourtYard at Boomtown, graced Guilfest main stage and the Isle of Wight festival amongst others. 

They have raised the roof at venues across Europe from Paris to Bologna to Reykjavik, and across the UK, sharing the stage with many great acts from Jimmy Cliff to The Beat, Fat Boy Slim to The Damned, and The Selecter to Fraebbblarnir (Iceland’s finest!) to name but a few.

One thing is for sure, when The Activators walk on to any stage, things start to get…..interesting! Music Beyond Boundaries – check it out!!
