Back by popular demand!

When London based eight-piece Maroon Town first started a little over 30 years ago, they were the first ska band to mix ska and reggae with rap, funk, and Latin/cumbia.

Their first album and singles produced by John Bradbury of The Specials. These recordings got the attention of the international music community and led to extensive touring in Europe, Japan and South America over many years.

Still at the cutting edge of creativity, their sixth and latest album ‘Freedom Call’ released on the Spanish label ‘Brixton Records’ in 2018 blends conscious reggae, jazz, big beat ska, as well as an up-tempo ska collaboration with renowned Basque Country reggae, rock and ska singer Fermin Muguruza.

The band possess a musical blend that has hooked fans and audiences from all over the world since the start. In 2021, they’re cooking better than ever, with new sounds and, as always, a show based on pure energy and superb musicianship.

Please note, this is an all-standing event.

This show was due to take place on 11 April 2021. Original tickets will remain valid.
