The 19th Annual Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival welcomes the world with a staggeringly diverse lineup full of the finest grooves and rhythms from around the globe.
The Victoria BC Ska Society is a non-profit community organization of volunteers, staff and a board of directors whose main goal is to keep Victoria’s Annual Ska & Reggae Festival improving and evolving year after year. Our goal is to entertain, educate and unite audiences nationally and internationally through the artistic development of ska, reggae and other Jamaican rooted genres such as rocksteady, dub and dancehall. The Society also presents other musical genres connected to these aforementioned including but not limited to Caribbean, various styles of Latin music, soul, jazz and world beat.
Headlining the fest are The Mighty Mighty Bosstones! These Ska-Punk icons last graced the Victoria Fest almost a decade ago, and this time they’ll take the marquee stage at Ship Point in Victoria’s famous Inner Harbour.
