FRIDAY 2 AUG
COUNTRY: Jamaica / UK
GENRE: Authentic Roots Reggae
🔥 Cimarons introduced reggae to the world by being the first UK reggae band to tour countries like Japan, Africa, and Europe.
🔥 They collaborated with Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, and Toots and the Maytals.
🔥 In July 2014, a blue plaque was affixed to the Tavistock Youth and Community Centre entrance in Harlesden to honour their contribution to reggae and British culture.
Cimarons set the UK reggae scene on fire when they formed in 1967. They were trailblazers in their own right, being the first self-contained reggae group in the UK. They brought a unique musical blend of reggae and soul from Jamaica, inspiring countless other artists. Their influence was felt not only in their music but also in supporting tours for reggae legends. Without a doubt, Cimarons were true pioneers of their time.
These guys have been in the game for a minute now, and they’ve got a ton of albums to show for it. “In Time” (1974) and “On the Rock” (1976) are just a couple of their classics that prove their range and love for reggae. They’ve kept it real for all these years, and that’s why they’re still influencing UK reggae artists today.
Witness the timeless power of music with Cimarons – legends that have survived and thrived for over five decades, always staying true to their reggae roots. Don’t miss the chance to experience their incredible sound at our Gold Stage!
