LOOPY Routes – Boing Boing

Some selected highlights from ska, reggae & a bit of punk rock ‘n’ roll performing at LOOPFEST 2024.

The Endings

Saturday 4th May 2024 · 13:20 · Shrewsbury Castle

Folky, rocky, indie shenanigans with a band who know exactly how to keep a crowd under their spell. They have simply grown into a monstrously efficient and brilliant live act.

King’s Alias

Saturday 4th May 2024 · 14:00 · The Old Post Office

These three lads make a big noise that is both soulful and riotous – reminiscent of Sublime and Rancid, but uniquely King’s Alias.

The Red Bastards

Saturday 4th May 2024 · 14:20 · The Yorkshire House

Punk, punk and a bit more punk. I don’t know what else you would expect from a band called ‘The Red Bastards’. They’re also a brutally brilliant live act who will make you want to grow a mohawk and start a riot.

Manor Heights

Saturday 4th May 2024 · 14:40 · Shrewsbury Castle

You love Skaburts dontcha? Well, imagine if they decided to write their own songs – sounds pretty sweet, don’t it? Well, imagine no more, it’s HAPPENING at Loop. Simply magnificent ska/punk/rock.

Dead Raze

Saturday 4th May 2024 · 15:00 · Ashley’s Bar

A duo who bring to mind a feral Seasick Steve having a fight with Joe Strummer. Since forming in 2022, they’ve wowed plenty of European venues with their fuzzy blues. A band made for LOOPFEST.
