The Baghdaddies

The Baghdaddies’ exuberant and rampant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour, making them as unforgettable on stage as they are when performing as wandering brass troubadours. They take themselves incredibly seriously so you don’t have to…

“If jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music, The specials might have sounded very like the Baghdaddies.”

— Nigel Williamson – Uncut Magazine July 2010

“The band have a particular flair for the Balkans and capture its frenetic energy and flamboyance wonderfully. There is also a fair share of klezmer, jazz, ska and punk – an anarchic fusion where Ivo Papasov meets The Clash meets The Beat”

— Songlines Magazine

Filthy Dirty Disco

Filthy Dirty Disco are a South West DJ collective who bring a much needed injection of mixed-up, mashed-up, maxed out music wherever they go. With an indecent predisposition to genre hopping, a disregard for purity and a party smashing attitude, prepare yourself for adulterated fun and serious dancing.

Forged on the dancefloors of Devon, Jessica Joy, Sofie F and Miss Demeaner bonded over a love of music and a desire to create their own party vibe wherever they play. Filthy Dirty Disco deliver a locked in dancefloor, hands-in-the air atmosphere, stunning visuals and sometimes a surprise guest thrown in for good measure.

The trio have smashed it out of the park at a variety of events, from regular Exeter gigs (the legendary Angel) to festival sets at Glastonbury, Beautiful Days, Altitude, a residency at Pink Moon and appearances on Love Summer Radio – it turns out that everybody loves a bit of filth!
