About The Activators

The Activators are a 10-piece band whose eclectic style transcends Rock, Ska, Reggae, Celtic and World genres, even venturing into Balkan Circus, Tango and Bossanova - not ones to be pigeonholed! To grab a flavour of their diversity have a look at some Russian Reggae - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXdyBgxjEGs Since formation, the group has stacked up a host of rave reviews and have received the thumbs-up from many quarters, including such diverse entities as Michael Eavis, the Strummerville Organisation to Bez of Happy Mondays fame! This recognition has been replicated on the live scene, with Festival appearances at Glastonbury, The Isle of Wight, Guilfest and The Strummer Of Love amongst many others, further enhancing their reputation. Reviewers deemed a Guilfest performance as “Best of the day” and This Festival Feeling enthused - “The highlight of the day was definitely The Activators, whose set of reggae/ ska tinged punk was more like a party than a gig.” Sabotage Times said of their Strummercamp performance: "Industrially tight with barrel loads of entertainment." Don’t take our word for it, have a glance at their live show - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKQgVoBCO3s Their energy, style and liking for mildly chaotic mayhem has led to them becoming regular performers in the UK and in Europe. The last four years has seen them tour extensively from Newcastle to Newport (IOW), Carlisle to Camden, Portsmouth to Paris and Manchester to Milan (to name but a few), sharing the stage with many great acts including Jimmy Cliff, The Beat, The Skints, The Dub Pistols, The Selecter and, by no means least, Fraebbblarnir (Iceland’s finest!) along with a host of others. Recent international slots have included headline shows in France, Italy and Iceland. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHdV1lVjywI The Activators have not only received acclaim for their amazing live shows... Most importantly, their song writing prowess, musicianship and, ultimately, their sensational tunes, have gained genuine respect and widespread appreciation. Many songs have a political edge and depth, yet maintain an immediacy that makes them irresistible to live audiences. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3483pTuRzQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUwLhXwm8rI One thing is for sure, when The Activators walk on to any stage, things start to get … interesting! Radio Rise Up Calling...Music Beyond Boundaries - check it out!! The Activators - the first choice for ska, balkan, reggae, celtic, brassy-bossanova chaos! Guaranteed to get the room jumping. And some.
