This all-ages ska-palooza goes down August 25 at the Worcester Palladium Outdoors, and includes Toots & The Maytals, The Bouncing Souls, Fishbone, The Pietasters, The Planet Smashers, and more to be announced. Cranking & Skanking Fest also promises a healthy serving of craft beer (for the 21-plus’ers), food (for the hungry’ers), and vendors (for the shopper’ers). The ticket pre-sale starts today.
Peep the lineup in flyer form below, cue up The Pietasters’ 1996 CD Strapped Live! (in our books one of the greatest live albums of all time) via Spotify, and catch up with Sir Dicky Barrett via our extended Q&A with the venerable frontman from back in December.
