The London Intl Ska Festival is facing closure. If you’d like to help save it then you can donate £1 by click the Donate button below. Every £1 helps.





London Intl Ska Fest facing closure / please support if you can

I’m sorry to say once again The London International Ska Festival is facing closure. This year we’ve managed to make a great dent in the debts, and keep the festivals (and my head) above water but there is still over £50,000 still to clear. And once again it has become to much to handle alone and is again, unfortunately, impacting on my health.

If you’d like to see the festival continue you can help right now in a number of ways. You can;

– buy a ticket for any of our upcoming events
– buy a copy of our upcoming comp Rudies All Around
– buy any item from our summer sale
– buy an earlybird ticket for The London Intl Ska Festival 2019 (as many of you have / you money is secure & will be refunded if the fest doesn’t happen)
– preorder new albums from Pama Intl or Phoenix City All-stars

All details on these below.

You can also donate any money to the cause you can donate but I’d much prefer you buy something or come to the events!





Thank you for your continued support. It is very much appreciated. Hope to see you soon!

Wish me luck!
