DJ Wendy May added to LISF2017

The third act to be announced this weekend for The London Intl Ska Festival 2017 is DJ Wendy May.

Back in the late 80’s Wendy started a club night at Kentish Town’s Town & Country Club on Friday nights called Wendy May’s Locomotion which regularly pulled in 2000 clubbers and is featured in Nick Hornby’s book 31 Songs as he was a regular and big fan. Seen as a welcome alternative to some of the pretentious clubs in London at the time, there was no dress code and the music was soulful, wild and real. Frequented by the likes of Madness, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller, it became home from home for Camden boys The Pogues. Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim did one of his first ever DJ sets warming up for Wendy when he was just the bass player with The Housemartins, and Phill Jupitus first took to the decks at her club!

We’re delighted to have Wendy returning to London to DJ our festival!
