The London International Ska Festival 2011

I am are delighted to announce the relaunch of The London International Ska Festival. I promoted the first one back in 1988 at The Brixton Fridge with Laurel Aitken, Bad Manners, Potato 5, The Loafers, Hotknives, The Deltones, Napoleon Solo, Capone and The Bullets and Skin Deep.

The next edition will be held at the beautiful Clapham Grand Theatre on Thursday 21st April through to Sunday 24th April 2011, and feature 22 bands and 10 DJs from around the world. We are currently finalising the line up and already have some fantastic exclusives programmed. Full line up to be announced very soon, so keep checking back or join the mailing list for updates.

We are aiming to make this an annual event and showcase the finest global talent from the Jamaican originators & the rhythm and blues sounds that inspired them, through 2 Tone and right uptodate with 21st century ska sounds.

See you there,
Sean Flowerdew
The London Intl Ska Festival organiser
