Over in The Musician tent I finally found a sound I wanted to dance to with The Paradimes. The mix of Ska and Reggae had my feet moving to the beat and my body ready for the rest of the day’s delights.
A night of dancing to some brilliant home grown ska reggae, good vibes, friendly faces & some old mates was the theme of The Paradimes gig.
