Once again, the Victoria Skafest will be heading to Vancouver Island this summer, and organizers have now announced the lineup for the 13th annual instalment of the event, which runs from July 10 to 14 at venues across Victoria, BC.

The artists playing this year's festival include Toots & the Maytals, Leroy "Heptone" Sibbles, the Pietasters, Larry and His Flask, the Boom Booms, Danny Rebel & the KGB, Mad Bomber Society, Rude City Riot, Blitz the Ambassador, Adham Shaikh, and more.

This year's program also includes a number of workshops that focus on different elements of ska music. If you'd like to know more about how ska works and why it matters, check out the workshop guide here.

Full festival passes cost $139.50 after tax. Tickets for individual gigs will also be available. Buy tickets and get more information over at the official Skafest website.
