Support The London International Ska Festival

by Sean Flowerdew in London, England, United Kingdom

Welcome to the latest The London Intl Ska Festival crowdfunder campaign.

The great news is The London International Ska Festival 2018 / 30th anniversary is on and it is set to be our biggest year yet! 

It features16 world exclusive events across 4 days next Easter (29 Mar-1 Apr'18) and stars; Ken Boothe, Derrick Morgan, Horace Andy, The Clarendonians, Doreen Shaffer, Otis Gayle, Johnny Clarke, Freddie Notes, African Head Charge, The Original Aces, Pama International & tons more.

The bad news is the festival is still facing a mountain of, despite raising £13,442 in two previous crowdfunder campaigns, we still have debt totally over £65,000.  

So once again, I am turning to lovers of all things ska, reggae and our festival.  Never one to ask for something for nothing I’ve come up with a range of merchandise and patron scheme to raise some much needed funding for the festival and help clear more of the debt.

So if you'd like to see the London Intl Ska Festival, which I founded in 1988, continue to grow and thrive please buy one of the rewards if you can afford to.  If you can't afford to please share this page and spread the word wherever you can.  

To begin raising more funds the first 'rewards' we've added to this campaign include; 

- The 2018 festival wristband/patron ticket

- The 2018 festival show posters, t-shirt and book (all prices include postage)

- A 1988 first LISF t-shirt design (all prices include postage)

and more to come, including a global Ska compiltion album.

I love the festival.  I love programming all the events.  Please help me to continue to do so.

Thank you for supporting our festival, Sean Flowerdew
