Ska Fest Geelong
Focus Group Music & The Ska Show on 88.3 Southern FM presents

Melbourne has always enjoyed a thriving ska scene and now Geelong has it’s chance to experience the joys of Jamaican inspired music as the festival is added to the return to Ska Nation festival in 2019.
Friday April 19th, Good Friday, the Ska Festival begins at Melbourne’s iconic Corner Hotel in Richmond and features a line up oozing with the promise of good times and non stop dancing from 7pm you’ll be able to catch Area 7, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Los Kung Fu Monkeys from Mexico, The Resignators, The Beatdown from Canada and the reformation of Mister Coffee.
The Ska Festival then heads down the highway to Workers Geelong in the heart of Geelong's CBD on Sunday April 28 for a party not seen in Geelong for many years.
