Thank you everyone! I do mean everyone who helped at & came to The London Intl Ska Festival 2016! Once again it has totally overwhelmed me that people are willing to travel from the four corners of the globe to be at our festival.

Every year I wonder who to book for the next and every year seems to somehow surpass expectations. This year has been truly historic. Some events have never happened before, and I doubt will ever again… URoy, Dennis Bovell, Oxman & Solution Sound System being a massive case in point. The two Thames cruises were two more unforgetable moments.

Every single band (except one!) really impressed me this year!

We’ve all been part of something very special and I truly am grateful to everyone for making The London Intl Ska Festival the event it is.

How do we top it? We don’t. We just keep building even more beautiful memories next year. Thank you one and all! Please keep spreading the word of the festival and tell your friends. We already have some amazing acts lined up for 2017, so hope to see you there!
