The London International Ska FestivalOriginally launched in 1988, this four-day London International Ska Festival returns to the capital over the Easter weekend and invites more than 60 acts to perform at O2 Academy Islington, London N1, The Dixie Queen and a number of other venues in celebration of all things ska, rocksteady, reggae, 2 Tone, dub and beyond. Confirmed acts for 2020 include Big Youth, Chainska Brassika, the eight piece ska-reggae band from south east London, and The Communicators. Easter Sunday sees a special woman's day featuring one of UK's brightest reggae stars Hollie Cook, and legendary artist Susan Cadogan - famed for her global hit Hurt So Good. The day also features a club night dedicated to Jamaican producer, Sonia Pottinger, with DJs Naoko The Rock (Japan), Texas Ranger and Grace of Spades.
