The London International Ska Festival Stranger Cole and Intensified play on the opening night of The London International Ska Festival , getting the festival off to a strong start. Originally launched in 1988, this four-day festival returns to the capital over the Easter weekend (24th to 27th March 2016) and invites more than 60 acts to perform at The Garage, Highbury Corner, The Dixie Queen and a number of other venues in celebration of all things Ska. Confirmed acts for 2016 include Johnny Osbourne, Hollie Cook, Sonic Boom Six, Maroon Town and The Ska Vengers.

 

About The Jazz Cafe

The youngest and funkiest of London's live jazz venues is everything a jazz bar should be - small, friendly and in love with music. The live acts at the Jazz Cafe come from every genre influenced by jazz, and it's one of the best places in London to hear classic soul, old skool hip-hop and reggae and laid-back breakbeats.
