Freck fest presents Seaside Ska Six
With Esperanza, The Skapones, Bombskare and Big Fat Panda
Introducing Bombskare, Scotland's 9 man ska juggernaut, who have been tearing up stages the length and breadth of the British Isles. Reaching zero to sixty skanking miles an hour in the space of three chords, they are tighter than Fort Knox. Their trademark, breakneck ska rhythms and lush, 3 part harmonies work together with choppy guitar sounds and an explosive horn section to truly blow the audience away. The band's expertise and sense of fun makes every performance truly memorable!

Esperanza is a nine-piece ska collective from Glasgow famed for live shows where their infectious rhythm has the crowd involuntarily jumping in time. In hectic years of gigging around Scotland, they have honed and perfected a high-tempo set, combining superb self-penned songs with a selection of ska classics, so that there isn't an ounce of fat left on it.

Featuring Big Andy and pals, Big Fat Panda are a Ska band from the fair city of Edinburgh. The band was formed by a group of friends who had been playing in various bands on the Ska scene for a number of years. The band's influences are mostly drawn from ska, rock steady and Reggae! Whatever the occasion, Big Pat Panda generate an enormous amount of energy through their live performances and are an act that you simply do not want to miss!
