Get ready to skank (meaning: dance to Ska music) as Cartel Production is bringing in a cool rhythmic music festival for reggae and ska music this month, featuring a line-up of outstanding local acts.
Dubbed as the Skankin Festival, the organiser previously also presented a series of small indoor shows called Skankin Fest Present.
Spearheaded by a group of visionary young folks from Cartel Production, the festival aims to promote the reggae and ska genres which are deemed as underground to the main stream market.
The festival will also serve as a platform for young reggae and ska-loving musicians to express and showcase their talents.
Taking place at the KL Live Centre on 24 December 2016 at 3pm, the festival will feature a total of 50 songs by 12 local reggae and ska bands including Salammusik, Gerhana Skacinta, Pure Vibracion, Plague of Happiness and Republic of Brickfields among others.
Cartel Production is also planning on releasing a compilation album of reggae and ska songs.
After Malaysia, the festival will be heading to Singapore and Indonesia as well.
Tickets for the festival are priced at RM90 for Early Birds, RM110 for Regular tickets and RM130 for VIPs.
