Camp Bestival reveals TOOTS replacement: MAX ROMEO

Hot on the heels of performances at the Lambeth Country Show and WOMAD, the organisers behind Camp Bestival have announced Jamaican roots legend MAX ROMEO as the replacement act for TOOTS AND THE MAYTALS.

ROMEO replaces TOOTS who was forced to cancel all UK shows after he was injured at a show in the US last month.

MAX ROMEO was one of the biggest stars to emerge from Jamaica in the 1960s and 1970s, and is a pioneer of the roots sound.

Fans can expect a high-energy performance with tracks like “War Ina Babylon” and “I Chase The Devil”.

Other reggae acts over the weekend include MUSICAL YOUTH, MAD PROFESSOR, DAVID RODIGAN and BARRY ASHWORTH.

The festival takes place on 1-4 August at Lulworth Castle in Dorset, with weekend camping tickets priced from £180.
