Bowler's Exhibition Centre will host a 6000 strong ska army on Saturday 20th August as the Great Northern SKA Festival comes to Manchester. The event will include performances from The Selecter, the Beat, Neville Staple, Jeremiah Ferrari, Dawn Penn and many more.

Penn is best known for her 1994 dancehall smash 'You Don't Love Me (No,No,No)', a re imagined version of a song she recorded in 1967.

Jeremiah Ferrari are a four piece from Manchester who are massively influenced by Bob Marley and The Wailers and Sublime, combining roots rock reggae with ska and punk to create a contemporary dub rock sound. Their aptly named 'Dubby Rock' E.P was released in 2012 and the band have supported the likes of Hollie Cook, The Blockheads and UB40.
