The Melbourne Ska Weekender features God God Dammit Dammit, Dan Potthast (USA) and The Bennies.

To celebrate old Lizzy's birthday Chopdog presents Ska Weekender Festival 2012. That’s right, folks... this has absolutely nothing to do with the Queen but everything to do with brass, checkered belts and dancing like a maniac.

In tow this year is a man who is no stranger to the Ska Weekender Festival and no stranger to Ska. Better known for his vocal contribution to MU330 but these days focusing on his solo material, US ska legend Dan Potthast never leaves a crowd unsatisfied.

“One big stage and the only man who can fill it on his own, Dan Potthast and his acoustic guitar come via the USA... It takes a talented person to fill an otherwise empty stage and captivate a fevered audience.” – Fasterlouder.com.au

This year’s Adelaide leg will be headlined by Adelaide’s downright outrageous God God Dammit Dammit.

"Ever heard of the saying 'the more the merrier'? Well if that's true then Adelaide 12-piece God God Dammit Dammit must be the merriest bunch of trumpet-blowing, guitar-strumming, bongo-hitting rascals this side of the North Pole." - Rip It Up

For the second year running crowd pleasers, The Bennies will be bringing their party fueled punk/ska/reggae to the stage. In 2011 they proved that there ain’t no party like a Bennies "Party! Party! Party!" making the decision to get them back in 2012 a no brainer. Recently releasing their 'Jah-Pan' EP in Japan, The Bennies have been touring hard around the Australian countryside, appearing on several international support bills and more recently at the Vans Mexican Skate Party with Californian punk rock legends, Guttermouth . Aussie music website Chucking A Mosh gave them a killer review of their debut release "Party! Party! Party!".

"Anyone who says they don’t like ska is obviously lying, so everyone should make it a point to head out, buy a bottle of something cheap and check out Party, Party, Party." - Chucking A Mosh

Rounding out the bill is locals Son of Dad, Tassie’s Phat Meegz, New Zealand’s Roofdog and young guns Give Or Take.
