Reggae stars at Rhythmtree

Aswad are headlining at this weekend’s Rhythmtree Festival on the Isle of Wight.

REGGAE stars Aswad will headline the Isle of Wight's Rhythmtree Festival tonight (Saturday). 

Now in its fifth year, the family-friendly festival is one of the most musically diverse in the country, featuring an eclectic line-up including afrobeat, reggae, funk, blues, folk, Latin and country music.

Marking ten years since the release of their debut album, Island stars The Bees headlined the main stage last night, with ASWAD tonight and La Chiva Gantiva tomorrow (Sunday).

A host of acts will perform in the festival's Didge Cafe, including Isle of Wight's own Sam Sheasby, Floella Grace, The Weatherkings and Claydon Connor.

Rhythmtree is at Three Gates Farm, Shalfleet.
