Event Description

*This show is FREE, fully licensed and all-ages!*

Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival has a bit of a reputation for digging up the musical diamonds and bringing them to our stages for all our Ska & Reggae Massive for our signature free shows and year 20 is no different. Coming up from Portland for their Canadian debut to headline the night are THE BANDULUS. This is a band seeping with soul, playing some of the most luscious ska and reggae tunes you're going to hear anywhere around these parts. We are so excited for them to make their debut with us!

Vancouver's rhythm powerhouse SALSAHALL COLLECTIVE is making the trek across the Strait for the first time and we can tell you, you do not want to miss this band! They opened up for Ozomatli at the Rickshaw this past January and they set the place on fire. Dancehall, salsa, hip-hop – whipped together and delivered with serious fire, Salsahall Collective should be on the must-see list for any serious groove lover this year. Before Salsahall Collective lays down their musical smoothness, another gigantic music-powerhouse (in terms of both size and sound) is making not only their festival debut, but indeed their world debut. THE CAPITAL COLLECTIVE is a veritable ska supergroup, gathering members from some of our favourite local bands – Dope Soda, Bananafish Dance Orchestra, Jon & Roy, Astrocolor, Batuque Axe, Lovecoast...and those are just the ones we know about now! We've heard rumblings of guests and surprises from this very special presentation, so we'll have to wait like everyone else! Kicking things off are our longtime friends THE STEADIES. One of Canada's most engaging reggae acts, it's been too long since The Steadies have been in Victoria and we figured Year 20 was the proper time to fix that. Expect big, warm sounds this whole night and ALL FOR FREE in our beautiful Inner Harbour. You have zero reason to miss this...

And be sure to grab tickets for the Cherry Poppin' Daddies rocking Distrikt with Apex Breaks and Stephen Lewis right after the harbour!
