Thank you!

Once again we have been truly humbled by the turnout for The London Intl Ska Festival 2014. Thank you to everyone… all the bands, bands and ticket buying folk for coming and making it so special. I think we can say it was the best festival to date. People flew in from an incredible 20 countries, from Costa Rica to Hong Kong, Auckland to Belfast, Moscow to Rio and beyond! Thank you!

Out of the bespoke events we planned the V&A event with Gladdy Wax and Tighten Up crew, the Thames cruise and the valve sound system clash with Sounds & Pressure and Axis Sound surpassed our expectations. Another wonderful surprise was the sheer quality of new acts coming through and all doing their own takes on Ska… take a bow: The Indecision, The Bionic Rats, Dirty Revolution, Rebelation, The Meow Meows, Aggressors DC, By The Rivers, Paperboy, Buster Shuffle, The Sidewalk Doctors and The Kubricks. The future is definitely safe!

Once again we through some legendary names into the mix unannounced… Freddie Notes and Vin Gordon. We always like to give you more!

Plans are already well underway for The London Intl Ska Festival 2015, with some truly unique events planned plus an unbeatable line up. Earlybird tickets go onsale on Mon 28 April. Grab yours asap. Only 100 are made available and sell out quickly!

Also watch out for a series of summer shows from us including events at Boomtown, Notting Hill Carnival, the Commonwealth Games, Melbourne Ska Orchestra (26 June), Buster Shuffle (20 Sept) and King Prawn (12 July). All details can be found here https://www.facebook.com/londonskafestival/events
