From its birth in Jamaica, Ska has come a long way - morphing and inspiring every generation and reaching all corners of the world. The festival will once again showcases all Ska has to offer from its roots in rhythm and blues, mento and calypso, to the Jamaican originators, the progression through rocksteady and reggae, 2 Tone, ska-punk and right up-to-date with 21st century Ska sounds.

We are once again delighted to be celebrating the wonderful world of Ska in all its irrepressible guises in 2013.
