The Undercover Hippy and his full band will be back in Glastonbury as part of their 2023 Spring Tour.
Drum and Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer-songwriter. Described by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson as being “like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest and The Sleaford Mods”, his music brings together powerful messages, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled MC. Think Natty meets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Renowned for the electric atmosphere of their live shows, Billy and his band have performed at some of the UK’s best festivals, including Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Shambala, Green Man, The Secret Garden Party, Ireland’s Electric Picnic, and many more.
One of Billy’s biggest strengths is the way he manages to pack his songs full of political and social commentary, whilst at the same time remaining playful and uplifting.
Support: State of Satta are a 7-piece Reggae band based in Leeds. Having formed in the ashes of 2020, the band have quickly established a name for themselves with their energetic stage show, rambunctious bass lines and beautifully crafted multi-lingual melodies. Inspired by the sounds of Jamaican and Cuban music, State of Satta are carrying on the lineage of bands like Gentleman’s Dub Club, UB40 and Fat Freddy’s Drop amongst many other dub influences.
