Victoria’s 18th Annual Ska & Reggae Festival took place on June 14th-18th 2017 at various venues throughout Downtown Victoria with the heart of the Festival at the main stage on Ship Point in the Inner Harbour. This year’s headliners featured Booker T. Jones (Memphis, Tennessee USA), Tarrus Riley with Dean Fraser & The Blak Soil Band (Jamaica) , The Black Seeds (New Zealand), Mad Caddies (Santa Barbara, USA), The Skints (England), Jah9 (Jamaica), & Mike Love (Hawaii, USA). The Festival features free shows, workshops and ticketed events, I was blown away by the Skints who despite the inclement weather, turned the crowd at Ship Point into a giant dance Party. Another highlight was the Mad Caddies, whose catchy horn infused heavy punk songs were a perfect fit for Ska Fest.
