Artists from across the world — including Jamaica, Colombia, and Costa Rica — will appear at the 23rd annual Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival, which is set for June 21-25 at various venues.
Reggae acts Maxi Priest, Sister Carol, and the Aggrolites will join hip-hop performers Chali 2Na, Brother Ali, and Kid Koala and electronic favourites Stickybuds and Congo Natty at the festival.
Ship Point, the Victoria Curling Club, and the Upstairs Cabaret are among the participating venues at the five-day event, which is expected to post impressive audience totals. The 2022 edition, which included The Wailers, King Yellowman, Too Many Zooz, and Tanika Charles, drew the festival’s biggest attendance to date.
Tickets go on sale through TicketWeb on Friday, March 24, at 10 a.m. For a full schedule of events, visit the Victoria Ska Fest website.
