The skanker with the best costume gets a load of drink tokens and a spot on our 'Wall Of Fame'
Major road construction is going on around the venue, causing some streets to be closed for traffic. When coming from the E40 highway, better take “Oude Gentbaan” > “Roklijf” instead of “Boudewijnlaan”. From the other direction (Dendermonde) better take "Asserendries” > “Welvaartstraat” > “Naarstigheidstraat” > “Roklijf” instead of taking “Boudewijnlaan”.
Once again, we have our own DIY catering! Expect more traditional food for a fair price, also vegetarian.
As usual, beer, soda, water, cocktails, and from this year on, also a non-alcoholic cocktail.
Your costume is all set, but you lack some face paint? Don't worry, we have 2 make-up artists at your disposal, for free, in the tent in front of the venue. They will paint your face in any theme you want between 19.30-21.30 and 22.00-00.00

Originally started as a side project for Ska-P singer Pipi, this ska/punk partyband from Madrid get's every club or festival going. Although their trademark is creating fiestas, it's their second nature to address social and political topics in their lyrics. And yes, they have been laying low for a while, but good news, they are back. And their first belgian show will be at Skalloween. If that isn't Loco?!
In the midst of the skapunk heavyness of The Locos and Faintest Idea, Two Tone Club from Montbéliard will please the more traditional ska lover, with tunes in the vein of The Skatalites, The Beat, The Special,... Led by Mista Black, their charismatic lead singer, the band knows how to raise the temperature, with a musical style distinct from their contempories, they combine the highly danceable ska and rocksteady beat with punk's energy and attitude. They released a brand new album “Don’t Look Back” last and are more than happy to present you rudeboys some new songs and old classics at Skalloween Festival!
Faintest Idea are a ska-punk band with deep, hard hitting dual vocals and addictive brass. From there energetic live performance, its no suprise they have an ever growing army of loyal fans. Mixing an exciting concoction of their influences - The Filaments, Rancid, Inner terrestrials,The specials,Toots and the Maytales etc; this band has its own sonic blast punk injected sound that is to rare to comprehend on its own!
Colorblind is a five piece reggae-fusion band. Each having roots in different styles of music, bringing a combination of reggae, funk, rock and pop music. One of those five members being from Aalst, they ended up playing De Geniepegen Drauk and Cosa Nostra last year and everyone who was there can acknowledge this is gonna be a perfect fit for a Skalloween line-up! And to make it even more special they will be joined by Mic Mo Lion who adds some extra reggae/hip hop flavor.
Yes yes, we did it again! We convinced the the Paul Estak from Oilsjt and his loyal MC once again to play an exclusive party set at Skalloween. We are very happy to call ourselves MC Boom Boom Sammy’s favourite festival to play, so let’s make this an anual habit? Prepare for loudness, prepare for hardcore, prepare for the ultimate party!
All belgian skapunklovers must know El Topo by now, right? Apart from organizing amazing skagigs, El Topo Fest and importing loads of great UK bands in our country, these guys also spin the tables once and a while. Cause you can never get enough ska and reggae!
Goodbye ska, welcome hits. Yes, this is about the time that we turn this place into a singalong and dance party with your favourite 80’s, 90’s and whatever hits. We leave this to the trustworthy hands of the Zorro FM Soundsystem.
Well ain’t this something special! A horn section of 7 and a mobile drummer who are ready to blow all the way, delivering you their brass versions of metal, rock, hardrock classics of Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Guns ‘n’ Roses, AC/DC, Metallica,… This unique concept made them world famous in Holland, resulting in sets at Paaspop, Zwarte Cross, supporting Volbeat, Guns ‘n’ Roses, … Their video of Ace Of Spaces even got shared by the official Motörhead facebook page, exposing them with 5 million views. They haven’t played Belgium that much and are very eager to do so at Skalloween!
