It is the week of Supernova Ska Fest 2021, and you know what that means! It’s Part 2 of our Supernova International Ska Fest celebration as we listen to some more of the bands that will be on the bill this year (along with some of the bands that were originally booked, but couldn’t make it).
This time around we have more of the 90s heart throbs that made us fans including The Toasters and Mephiskapheles, newer bands like Mr. Kingpin and The Loving Paupers, plus Adhesivo bringing the “international” from El Salvador.
If you can’t make the festival in-person, you can still watch the entire weekend via livestream! Weekend and day passes are now available, and the 100% Ska Podcast is a sponsor! Also, don’t forget to check out our Supernova 2021 Part 1 episode if you haven’t already.
If you are heading to the festival, your DJ Ryan Midnight will be wandering around all weekend. Say hi, and get a pin and sticker!
UPDATE: When this episode was originally recorded, Dr. Ring Ding was still scheduled to appear. Unfortunately due to visa issues, he will longer be performing this year.
