Supa & Da Kryptonites band members travelled from Edinburgh and North Berwick to Glasgow for the warm-up gig that would seal their fate at one of Scotland’s favourite festivals. The last heat held in Nice ‘N’ Sleazy proved one of the best nights of their career as news hit home. Yes, Supa & Da Kryptonites would be opening The Wickerman Festival, they are one of the best bands in Scotland, and everything written about them in the last piece all of a sudden became 3D.
Now the eve of this life changing event to date is upon them.
Members: Jay Supa. Sarah Knowles. Matthew Edwards, Murray Boyd, Conal McIntosh. Aaron Coppinger, Lewis Bennet, Jonathan Ginty can say after tomorrow night, that they have gone and done it. Enjoying every adrenaline fuelled moment.
Even though the festival started today, tomorrow is when Supa & Da Kryptonites will take the stage as their own to smash out their most grime/hip hop/funk fused set to date.

With the Saturday night main stage line-up listed like this.
SATURDAY 25TH JULY
EXAMPLE & DJ WIRE
SUPA & DA KRYPTONITES
Looking at the bill is the equivalent of seeing your favourite local band’s name in lights against a few greats that you grew up listening to and loving.
The band’s evolved sound has allowed mass audiences to become enamoured with their vocal agility and instrumental dexterity.
Jay shard the band’s excitement:
‘It’s just really humbling and exciting for all of us.’
‘It will be our biggest gig to date and largest festival we have played that alone makes it pretty special.’
‘But to be opening up to the likes of Example, Nenah Cherry and the living legend that is Jimmy Cliff is actual madness…but we have to just keep it Supa and be ready to bring da funk!’
Supa & Da Kryptonites also reveal they are looking forward to bringing their ‘own twist of grime’ to the biggest festival to date for them tomorrow.
With that there are only a few things left to say…
Congratulations Supa & Da Kryptonites!!
To your moment at Wickerman….
