The spearhead of the ska revival that swept over the UK in the ’70s, The Specials wrote immortal hits (Gangsters, A Message to You Rudy, Ghost Town…) and founded legendary record label Two Tone. Reformed in 2009 some 30 years after they first donned the porkpies, the group cranks out the same irresistible energy as ever and is once again packing them in all over the world. This is their first Festival appearance. Get ready to be rankin’ and skankin’! Opening the evening, get set for a refreshing presence on the indie-rock scene: Anthony “Tone” Catalano and Celeste “CC” Spina, alias Little Hurricane.
