Skagate 2018

Skagate celebrates the historical connection of Margate to the British Skinhead subculture and its continued relationship with the original late 50’s Jamaican music genre known as Ska. Spread across 3 rooms and starting at 2pm on the 6th July, this weekender brings together the old and modern genres with Live & DJ performances, fashion, and photography.

Prepare for another instalment of original Jamaican 50s & 60s Bluebeat, Rocksteady, Ska & Reggae.

With very special guests 'The Heptones'... plus more to be announced.
This year we will feature bands across the whole weekend, Friday – Sunday, closing down 9pm Sunday night, with late bar activities at The Northern Belle.
