Another band has confirmed that it will participate at the 2015 Sziget Festival: this time it’s the French roots reggae band Wailing Trees. According to the band’s Facebook page, Wailing Trees will play at the Sziget Festival on the 13th of August.
Nominated for the “Victoire du Reggae” in its home country, in the “Best New Artist 2014” category, and winner of the “Rototom European Reggae Contest 2014”, the young and dynamic band has recently released its first album “The World Go Round” and is currently on tour to promote it.
The band plays a mixture of several styles – reggae with a dash of soul, jazz, rock and world music added to the concoction. The band is considered by many to be the rising stars of the European reggae scene – during their not too long career they shared the stage with big names like Shaggy, Lauryn Hill, Sean Paul, Patrice, IAM, Jimmy Clif , Groundation, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Dub Inc, Kymani Marley, Lee Scratch Perry, The Abyssinians, Biga Ranx, Soom T and several others.
