Ska Nation 2022 will bring some of the best ska-centric acts to the small regional town called Warrion, just outside Colac, Victoria.
This year’s festival will be headed up by some of Australia’s and the world’s best exponents of Jamaican-inspired music together for a two-day dance party – including one of the originators of ska from Jamaica in Stranger Cole.
Joining Cole will be Los Angeles’ purveyors of the ‘dirty reggae’ sound The Aggrolites, who will also be heading up the festivities, alongside American third-wave ska band Mephiskapheles, Philly ska experts Catbite, Victorian seven headed brash and boisterous ska punk monster The Resignators, and Australians tallest Ska band The Donald Trumpets, among others.
Making its highly-anticipated return for 2022, following last years event with the likes of The Bennies, The Resignators, Loin Groin and more, the massive two-day Ska Nation 2022 celebrates the vibrant ska scene in all its glory.
Taking place on Saturday, November 26 and Sunday, November 27, Ska Nation 2022 is taking to the town of Warrion, two hours out of Melbourne. Just 20 minutes out of Colac, the festival will be nestled between dormant volcanoes and golden plains farms on an acre of the countryside behind the 150-year-old Ti Tree Hotel.
There will be free camping at Meredith Park campgrounds for festival-goers, with regular shuttles as well as camping closer to the venue (subject to council approval) and a variety of B&Bs and hotels in Colac and the surrounding district.
Ska Nation will also be complemented by markets and food trucks.
