THE SKATALITES 5:30pm • HarbourFlap Stage


In the early 60’s Jamaica found its musical voice. The sound at the helm of the revolution was ska and it would go on in time to give birth to dancehall, dub, rock steady and of course reggae.

It’s the sound of an irresistible party. An infectious, all-welcoming groove designed for moving and built for good times.

Clockenflap 2015 pays homage to the originators of this sound - The Skatalites - who were at the very forefront of the movement since 1964. Spreading their musical joy since their reformation in the late 80’s, be sure to catch these musical icons when they take to the mid-afternoon Clockenflap stage. Magic.
