Eskimo Dance, the jewel in grime's crown, has just made a couple of massive announcements. Talk of a national tour had been buzzing around for a little while before the announcement was officially made, but now we know for sure that a six-date UK tour will definitely be happening. Kicking off in Bristol on Feb. 20, the tour will pass through London (Mar. 5), Leeds (Mar. 18), Manchester (Apr. 23), Birmingham (May 7) and finishing in Glasgow (May 21). Not only that, but Eskimo Dance will then be hosting their own stage at Bestival in September.
The usual faces—Wiley, Skepta, and the rest of BBK—will form the backbone of the tour with allies like Ghetts, Chip, Fekky and more rounding out the line-ups in each city. When it comes to Bestival, however, they've gone all out. Aside from the mainstays they've got Section Boyz, Big Narstie, Newham Generals, P Money and more rounding out the line-up. Take a look at the dates below for more info and tickets. No doubt there'll be some special guest appearances along the way so make sure you keep 'em peeled for more announcements.
