Support The London Intl Ska Festival – clearance sale

The London Intl Ska Festival are sitting on a large amount of old stock. Rather than leaving this all in storage we’d thought we’d sell it all off at super low prices, giving Ska music lovers great deals, whilst raising money to enable the festival’s continued growth.

With sights very much set on making The London Intl Ska Festival 2014 the best event to date all funds raised will help us programme even more bespoke events and exclusive events.

Included in the sale are London Intl Ska Festival CDs, vinyl, t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, books and posters from £1 (post free in the UK) plus stock from Pama Intl, Rebelation, Smoke Like A Fish, Do The Dog music, Phoenix City All-stars, The Slackers, The Toasters, The Dualers and more!

The London Intl Ska Festival is 100% DIY with no sponsors or funding of any type so any purchase made really is a huge help! Thank you for supporting The London Intl Ska Festival.
