By January 13th, 2023Locus 2023 eng

Considered internationally as one of the best live bands around, Fat Freddy’s Drop will be in Locorotondo (BA) on July 29 in Masseria Ferragnano, for the nineteenth edition of the Locus festival.

Tickets available on and starting from monday 16/1 at 10:00 am

It is a great return to the roots for the band and for Locus festival, which hosted Fat Freddy’s in its first edition back in 2005 in Locorotondo when their first album “Based on true story” came out. 
Since then the big FFD family (seven elements on stage) has come a long way, creating a solid international fan base thanks also to their explosive live energy: anyone who has seen one of their concerts has fallen in love with them instantly!

Their extremely distinctive and captivating sound born from the love of the producer Mu (aka DJ Fitchie) for analogue techno and dub, masterfully balanced with the fascination for soul and reggae of  refined singer Joe Duke (aka Dallas Tamaira), and with the collective passion of the whole band for Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Rock, Disco, House, Post Punk and Balearic music… music of many colours, as the Locus 2013 claim!

Locus festival 2023  continues to outline an increasingly intriguing program. A journey through the most beautiful Apulian locations, which will host Simply Red in Trani on 27 June (already SOLD-OUT!), Sigur Ròs in Bari on 11 July, and FFD on 29 July in Locorotondo, which will be the prelude to a full week of great music in Locorotondo from 8 to 14 August with The Comet is Coming, Ezra Collective, Fatoumata Diawara, Makaya McCraven, Roy Ayers, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Sun Ra Arkestra… among the first names announced.
Many more artists and locations will be announced in the coming months.
