The Annual Ska and Early Reggae Festival 2018 TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE.




Welcome to 1UM Promotions

1UM Promotions are a group of like-minded people with their roots in Bradford and have a love of Ska, Rocksteady, Blue beat and Vintage Reggae as well as the 2-Tone Movement that emerged in the late Seventies and Early Eighties. The idea was hatched to highlight the growing Ska Scene in Bradford and can now call on several generations of Ska Family and Friends to help promote this genre of music that is truly multi-cultural and help expand the scene across all age groups.

The Bradford Ska and Early Reggae Festival has grown from humble beginnings and is now into the 6th year of this Annual Festival held at the The Underground and is becoming a ‘must go to’ event for all fans of Ska and Early Reggae. Each Festival has included Local Bands and bands from further afield, so a good mixture of Ska, Rocksteady, Blue beat and Vintage Reggae and now is becoming recognised nationally.

The 1UM Promotions Festival is all about Ska Musicians and DJ’s having a platform to play the Music and fans being able to attend to enjoy a day and night of the Music, Socialising and getting to meet new friends and the musicians. It’s not just about fashion either, you don’t have to wear the “Gear” to be part the crowd, all you need is to like Music and good company, everyone is made to feel welcome no matter what your background.  The Festival is funded by 1UM Promotions and ticket sales allow the Artists, overheads, venues , equipment, security all to be paid, making these events for the fans by the fans. With the resurgence of Ska, Rocksteady, Bluebeat and Vintage Reggae, there is a thirst for the music and we are now looking to expand in the future years to make these events bigger and better for everyone, so whilst not wanting to lose the authenticity and ground roots of the music and keep prices as low as possible, would consider any offers of any form of advertisement, backing or support in expanding the Bradford Ska and Early Reggae Festival into the Number One Ska Event in the Yorkshire Area.

Ska Music – It’s Happening – be part of it!!!
