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 played here in 2019 and they're coming to close the festival on Sunday night this year.
Their energy, style and liking for utter mayhem have led to them becoming regulars on the live music circuit in the UK and in Europe. As an audience member screamed at one of their most recent Reykjavik gigs: „The actlvators eru betri en milljón tunna af bjór!! “ They have raised the roof from Iceland to Italy, and across the UK from Tyneside to Taunton and Carlisle to Camden, sharing the stage with many great acts from Jimmy Cliff to The Beat to The Skints to The Selecter to Fat Boy Slim to Fraebbblarnir (Iceland’s finest!) to name but a few.
2015 and 2017 performances at Glastonbury and 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 at Boomtown have cemented the band’s reputation as ‘festival favourites’ and in 2016 they were personally selected by ‘Mr Glastonbury’ Michael Eavis to share the stage with Fat Boy Slim at the Pilton Party.
The band’s latest release ‘Hanging with the Hoi Polloi’ showcases their diverse sound.
One thing is for sure, when The Activators walk on to any stage, things start to get very interesting!
