In the spirit of community and bringing together through music that birthed Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival, we always try to close a festival with a fresh, world-class lineup that allows everyone to find something new and access music they might never have a chance to see. We are always looking to open up new musical avenues for our audiences and this year is no different. Headlining our closing day is Toronto reggae/R&B songstress TRISH making her festival debut backed by our dear friends PHONOSONICS. Armed with an incredible falsetto, unique vibe and powerful stage presence, Trish has made a splash on the Canadian music scene through both her solo work and her work with the Juno-nominated Sattalites. With the help of Phonosonics, Trish is sure to close our festival with something special – guaranteed to send the people home with love in their hearts and a smile on their faces.

Our closing Sunday spetacular also brings the return of Brazil's PARAHYBA SKA JAZZ FOUNDATION. The supremely dynamic 7-member group lit up the Inner Harbour the last time they made it up here. They've proven themselves as keepers of traditional Jamaican jazz sounds with an emphasis on strong jazz aesthetic. Their shows are showcases of ska and reggae classics, played with colourful energy and a deep, abiding respect for the art of ska music.

We are so excited to welcome back one of our favourite bands working in Canada today as THE STEADIES make a triumphant return to the main stage to help us round out another year of celebrating musical community. Ska, reggae, soul, funk, straight-up rock – it doesn't matter what The Steadies are doing because when they're on stage you know it's going to be played with serious skill and sexy, smooth style. Wether you've seen them before or you're experiencing them for the first time – The Steadies at the Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest on the main stage under the afternoon sky is a show you definitely do not want to miss. BUDDY JAY'S JAMAICAN JAZZ BAND is also on the bill for this free closing day celebration. Playing well-crafted original music that touches on ska, dub, reggae, rocksteady and calypso with a deep abiding respect for the roots of the music, there's no one doing it like Buddy Jay and the crew right now. With 8 members banging out the tunes, their sound is big and draws music-lovers of all kinds in. We're also very stoked at the return of our friend and one of the most knowledgable selectors we've ever encountered, YOUNG ROYAL, as he keeps the crowd hopping between bands. Come join us as we close out our 23rd year and take the first steps into the summer!
