The Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival
Ship Point, Victoria
2:00PM – 10:00 PM

Vancouver reggae legends ROOTS ROUNDUP finally take our Main Stage at Ship Point to help close out another year of super-fine music and art. The music of the longtime champions of west coast reggae was instrumental in the formation of both the Victoria Ska & Reggae Society and Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival.

Their sunny, rootys riddims helped inspire our Festival founder and head, revealing the musical community at large and opening the door for new blood into the scene. It’s an honour to have them at the festival, dropping their tunes and getting all the Massive dancing.
