We are delighted to bring Sam and the Womp to Festival 8 for the first time. Their biog says;
Sam and the Womp is a British band headed up by trumpet player and premiere rabble-rouser Sam Ritchie and Dutch-born singer-songwriter Bloom de Wilde.
Sam and the Womp’s debut single was ‘Bom Bom’, and it went straight to No. 1 in the UK charts in August 2012. ‘Bom Bom’ went on to sell over one million copies around the world.
The band’s trademark sound comes from an innovative mix of ska and balkan music, blended with modern dance and electronic sounds.
The band have been in the studio working hard to prepare their new music, as well as performing to sell out audiences across Europe. With new material due out in 2018, it’s time to BRING THE TRUMPETS!
