Get ready to skank, groove, and embrace the contagious beat of ska music, as the Ska Nation Music Festival returns for another incredible year of non-stop fun! This year's festival promises to be bigger, better, and bouncier than ever before, with a line-up that will make you dance until your feet can't take it anymore.

We are super excited to announce that due to overwhelming demand we are moving the festival to the Colac showgrounds, and now have on site camping and amenities.


Ska Nation is also thrilled to announce an electrifying opening party at the Ti Tree Hotel Warrion, the Friday night before the fun begins at the showgrounds!

Featuring the renowned Australian punk band The Bennies, with support from The Donald Trumpets and The Kujo Kings. Entry is free with any 2-day festival pass purchased before September 1st, so be quick, numbers to this event are limited!

Prepare to witness the magic as the stage lights up with ska's finest talents including the infectious rhythms of the Mad Caddies from California, the band that brought you bangers like "Road Rash" and "Drinking for 11" along with Area 7, Australia's premier ska band! But that's not all! Melbourne Ska Orchestra, a powerhouse collective of talented musicians, will bring their big band sound and infectious enthusiasm to the festival. Get ready to be blown away by their horn section and charismatic front man!

In addition to the incredible performances by the Mad Caddies, Area 7 and Melbourne Ska Orchestra, the Ska Nation Music Festival will also feature a handpicked selection of supporting acts, ensuring non-stop ska goodness throughout the day.


Whether you're a die-hard ska fan or someone looking to experience the vibrant and energetic atmosphere of a ska music festival, Ska Nation has got you covered. Get ready to immerse yourself in a world of infectious beats, catchy horn melodies, and uplifting lyrics that will have you skanking and singing along with fellow enthusiasts.
