The Iconics are a ska / reggae / 2-Tone / mod covers band from north of London.They play festivals, clubs and large pubs, and although based just north of London, they travel all round the country.
They mix of the early ska and mod tunes from the 60s and 70s like The Who, The Small Faces, The Kinks, Booker T and Dave and Ansell Collins , coupled with the high-energy 2-Tone ska from the early 80s bands like The Specials, Selecter and The Beat plus mod revival bands like Paul Weller, Secret Affair, etc. These tunes are certainly going to get everybody up and dancing!

Welcome to the 23rd Positive Images Festival taking place in June 2017. The Festival is entirely managed and organised by volunteers and all organisations affiliated to the Festival whether voluntary, cultural, educational, health related, statutory or faith related work under the umbrella of Positive Images. The Festival would not exist without its volunteers and again as in recent years the work of student volunteers from Coventry University and Culturae Mundi is integral to the three week celebration of diversity in the city. We thank all the volunteers for their great enthusiasm and support.
Positive Images was founded to celebrate the amazing heritage of and cultural traditions of the city’s mainstream and minority communities and now also embraces diversity in all its forms.
This year the festival will be launched at 12.00 noon on Saturday 10th June.
The Festival is strongly supported by Hillz FM Community Radio, who will be conducting interviews and gathering the views of local people attending Positive Images, which will be heard on the city’s air waves through 98.6fm.
