Seasick Steve To Headline Joe Strummer Tribute

Seasick Steve is set to join the already outstanding line-up for this year's 'Strummer of Love' festival taking place in Somerset on the weekend of 17th to 19th August. The one-off event will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the death of iconic Clash frontman Joe Strummer.

Having already sold out scores of venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Hammersmith Apollo and Brixton O2 Academy, the cult bluesman will be joining an already impressive line-up including The Pogues, Frank Turner and Emmy the Great.

Additionally, dance music pioneers Basement Jaxx will be performing an unseen and exclusive DJ set which promises to be one of the highlights of the festival. Classic dancehall and reggae DJ David Rodigan will make sure the whole site gets up and moving whilst DJ Scratchy, who rode on tour with the Clash, will be bringing an element of '76 energy to the proceedings.

Faithful to the spirit of Strummer's diverse life and career - as hippy era festivalgoer, folk troubadour, family man, globally feted punk icon and world music explorer - the 'Strummer of Love' event should be an occasion to savour.
