The London International Ska FestivalBack for its 26th anniversary, this four-day festival returns to the capital over the Easter weekend (17th to 20th April 2014) and invites 50 acts to perform across multiple London venues in celebration of all things Ska. With a variety of guests, including a number of Jamaican legends, the festival spans across all eras of the music genre. From 60s Jamaica through to the 70s and late 80s revivals, music fans can expect ska in all its guises including the original American rhythm and blues, The Specials 2 Tone era and Madness who were responsible for bringing Ska into the mainstream. Embracing these influences, the line-up boasts the likes of Derrick Morgan, Junior Murvin performing his classic Police & Thieves album, soulful vocalist Ken Parker, and Keith & Tex, the Jamaican duo famed for 1967 hit 'Stop That Train'.
