Bring Back Skappleton Kickstarter Campaign!

The people behind Skappleton (Appleton, Wisconsin's annual ska festival--founded 20 years ago--which has featured The Skatalites, Catch 22, Big D and the Kids Table, Mustard Plug, The Toasters, Bomb the Music Industry!, The Planet Smashers, Suburban Legends, and Deal’s Gone Bad) and the Midwest Ska Fest (in Chicago) are joining forces this year to present a two-day ska festival in both cities on August 13-14, 2016--and are running a modest Bring Back Skappleton Kickstarter campaign (goal: $1,800--and they're already at 50%) to pay for the Wisconsin venue and help cover production costs.

If you're in the Midwest and love your ska music, there are some great perks available at reasonable pledge levels, such as snagging weekend passes for both festivals now! The Bring Back Skappleton campaign ends on February 15, 2016, so if you're interested, pledge now.

Support live ska music in the heartland!
