BY THE RIVERS & THE TROJANS added to London Intl Ska Fest

The organisers behind the London International Ska Festival have revealed the latest additions to their 2014 event: BY THE RIVERS and THE TROJANS.

Formed in spring 2010 by Leicester friends out of a love of reggae, BY THE RIVERS has wasted no time in establishing itself as one of the UK's brightest hopes.

In addition to a summer of festival appearances and a 15-date arena tour last year with THE SPECIALS, the group has supported JOHN HOLT, DAWN PENN, MAXI PRIEST and many others.

THE TROJANS are fronted by the one and only Gaz Mayall, host of London's longest running club night Gaz's Rockin' Blues.

They'll be promoting their upcoming album, Smash It, which features Jamaican greats VIN GORDON and EDDIE "TAN TAN" THORNTON.

In addition to headliners DERRICK MORGAN, FREDDIE NOTES and JUNIOR MURVIN, other recent artists added to the bill include TOP CATS, REBELATION, PRESSURE TENANTS and DENNIS BOVELL.

The London International Ska Festival takes place on 17-20 April 2014 at famed and iconic venues across London.

Four-day tickets costing £130 are available now from the London International Ska Festival website.
