Providencia
From Medellin, Colombia, Providencia have been playing their punk and latin-infused reggae since 2001. They have performed at many of the country’s largest music festivals and have worked hard to strengthen the country’s independent music scene. In 2009 they received the Subterrania award for Best Reggae Group, and show no sign of stopping. This 6-piece are full of international energy and will surely be one of the surprise highlights of the festival.

Zvuloon Dub System
Zvuloon Dub System have established themselves as Israel's premier reggae band. The universal messages of roots and reggae music is strong with this group. Their tight vocals and authentic rhythms are great for old and new reggae fans alike. They sing in both English and Amharic have been rocking audiences since 2006. Bringing a true international flair, Zvuloon Dub Soundsystem are ready to rock the Ska Fest stage!

Downtown Mischief
Bringing in some funk and jazz to the Victoria Ska Fest, Downtown Mischief storm the stage with an energy and passion matched by few. Smooth grooves and progressive elements bring up a swell of positive music and good times. Hitting the stage with groups like Jah Cutta, Giraffe Aftermath, and Los Furios, Downtown Mischief will definitely be bringing the party!

The Brass Action
Vancouver’s Brass Action are coming in hard and fast! This energetic and horn-heavy group play a mix of ska, punk, rock, reggae, and whatever else they please. Fans of groups like The Mad Bombers Society and Mighty Mighty Bosstones will love The Brass Action.
