We are delighted to announce that we are relaunching 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, Napolean 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 23 bands and 9 boss DJs from around the world.

We are currently finalising the headliners and already have some fantastic exclusives lined up.

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

Website will be launched shortly, along with the announcement of the headliners. If you’d like to be added to the festival’s mailing list and be the first to hear about tickets email and put London Ska Fest in the subject line.
