The grand finale to this year's festival ! Let's celebrate in style with top live ska act ... INTERSKALACTIC
WHEN : Sunday 24th May, 5.15pm FREE!
WHERE : Festival Stage @ Abbey Grounds, Abbey Street
Interskalactic have firmly marked their place as a truly unique festival and party favourite. Adding their modern big band flavour to first-wave, old-school Jamaican ska, Interskalactic have brought this infectious music that first exploded worldwide with celebrations of Jamaican independence in the ‘60s back into the live music scene of today!
Interskalactic are no strangers to having their audience dancing for two hours straight and still calling for more! Their upbeat set features covers from classic ska artists including The Skatalites, Byron Lee & the Dragonaires and Prince Buster, combined with their ska-ified versions of popular hits from the last few decades and more recently with their own original compositions!
Stellar live performances throughout 2014 include:
• RTÉ’s The Late Late Show
• Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Cork Jazz Festivals
• Opened for Madness M.A.D.H.E.A.D. Tour in Ireland’s largest indoor venues 3Arena Dublin and The Odyssey Arena Belfast
• performances in prestigious venues Vicar Street and Whelans and at countless events, parties and venues all over the country.
With an incredible year behind them, Interskalactic are set to stay on this trajectory throughout 2015 and beyond! interskalactic.com
