» Testimonials"There's nothing like a good bit of ska to get a festival started, and main-stage openers Ska Wars really know what a good bit of ska is. Resplendent in two-tone and a kilt no less (on Trumpet Player Nick Horne), Ska Wars look the part as well as sounding it. Once we'd got the expected nod to Lucasfilm (well what would expect from Skarth Vader and Ska-2-d-2?) Ska Wars really took off. Good old school ska with all the trimmings (the influence of Madness and The Specials shining through), which was performed quite frankly masterfully. I couldn't see a person within 100 yards not skanking. After a blinding set, front man Bobba Fat left the stage after addressing the crowd pontifical style: "bless you, bless you", and went to a galaxy far, far away."
