Wknd 1: Mr Tea & The Minions

United by a love of tea, energetic dancing, cheeky riffs, silly hats, and cake, Mr Tea and the Minions have been unleashing their colourful explosion of musical mayhem on unsuspecting audiences since 2013.

Their raucous Ska Folk blended with full-fat Balkan beats and a squeeze of tangy Dub has made them party-starting festival favourites – and has inspired frenzied dancing all over the UK (and on a number of forays into continental Europe), with almost 100 festival appearances including Glastonbury, Boomtown, WOMAD, Secret Garden Party, Shambala, Belladrum, Wilderness, Nozstock, and Goulash Disko, to name just a few.

“The Minions seamlessly weave Balkan beats with ska, dub and swing to create a bouncing afternoon set which has everyone from four-year-olds in luminous ear defenders to grey-haired dreads kicking up the dust in front of the main stage. It’s impossible not to get involved.”  – The Independent
