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, Bluebeat 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 1st July 2017 has grown from humble beginnings and is now into the fifth year of this Annual Festival that is held every July at the University of Bradford and is becoming a ‘must go to’ event for all fans of Ska and Early Reggae. Each Festival has included Local Bands and also Bands from further afield, so a good mixture of Ska, Rocksteady, Bluebeat 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 popularity of the 1UM Promotions Festival is now starting to grow, with more and more bands, musicians and DJ’s asking to play the venue and with that in mind, we are now expanding to a bi- monthly event called the Coterie Club (Coterie – a group of people who do things together, a colony, commune or community) the first which was well received and the second in early February. Whilst not the main event of the Festival, it does allow for a night of musicians and DJ’s to perform on a smaller scale and still cater for the needs of the fans and followers of Ska Music

The Festival and Coterie Club are events 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 and Coterie Club into the Number One Ska Event in the Yorkshire Area.
