Its hoped up to 500 people will line up to ska dance along Ryde Seafront, beating the current unofficial record of 423.

It is all taking place to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust and Tonic Music for mental health.

As part of a national event that runs every weekend in March, the Isle of Wight leg is the only one that does an actual march going from venue to venue with DJs and live music at each.

100% of all donations will go directly to the charities as all the artists play for free, with over £26,500 raised on the Isle of Wight so far and £600,000 nationwide.

Those taking part can expect a great day with a fantastic, busy atmosphere and, of course, great music. The event is free all day but visitors are encouraged to buy a £10 day wristband or an evening £5 wristband to support the charity and respect the artists that are giving up their time to make the day work.

The day starts at 13:00 Ryde Pavilion with DJ Kath Tan, followed at 13:30 by Tonics Ska Choir with an hour of some of Ska’s biggest tunes sung live by the UK’s No1 ska choir.

14:30 is the start of the World record attempt, so everybody is asked to arrive by 14:00 at the latest to register your name.

The event then carries on after the record attempt with everybody welcome at The Esplanade Hotel, then back at Ryde Pavilion for a whole host of great bands and DJ’s from across the UK.
