What Ace-K told all the members at first when the band began?
He made a promise that they would be The LONDON INTERNATIONAL SKA FESTIVAL in five years.
It was the dream to be there since he first listened to the ska vinyl compilation "SKANKIN''ROUND THE WORLD" by UNICORN RECORDS almost 20 years before.
Masaki also followed it because of a freak and a collector.
The dream come true.
Just remember what Desmond Dekker sung "You can get it if you really want".
Finally Beat Bahnhof come to The LONDON INTERNATIONAL SKA FESTIVAL 2015.
They've got the key.
Now the door to all over the world has unlocked!
Try to see they're on a mission from God of SKA!
