Walshy Fire

An MC and selector who injected extra authenticity into Diplo’s dancehall project Major Lazer, Walshy Fire was born Leighton Walsh, and is the younger brother of Jamaican Cricket legend Courtney Walsh. Born in Miami but raised in Jamaica, he first ran a sound system in Brooklyn, acting as the crew’s DJ. He joined Miami’s Black Chiney Sound System as a DJ and MC in 2003 under the name Walshy Killa, later changing it to Walshy Fire. Be sure to check him out when he takes the stage at our Big Top tent!
