Australia’s most soulful boutique music, arts and eco event is returning for the 12th year to Home Beach at Point Lookout, Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island) from October 26 - 29, 2017.
Renowned for their world class line up of reggae, soul, electronic bass and indigenous culture, Island Vibe Fesitval is delighted to share their first line-up release.
From Bristol UK, is MC junglist extraordinaire Eva Lazarus and DJ Chris Munky who blaze a mixture of reggae, hip hop, dancehall and drum & bass. Joining them are UK dancehall lord Parly B & the 4'20 Sound, Berlin’s funk fusion king - JStar, and NZ’s reggae heavyweights Dub Terminator and Dubsonic.
From our own shores, perennial festival favourites OKA will be back with their thunderous blend of didjeridu powered dance grooves alongside the 10-piece funk brass behemoth that is Bullhorn, reggae lords Kingfisha, the drum fuelled insanity that is The Bird, Triple J hip hop prankster chart toppers Butterfingers and the all star collective The New Buzz (featuring members of the Beautiful Girls, Dubmarine and Upsteppers). West End's songbird Ofa Fanaika will also be bringing her Church on Sunday collective to keep the jams fluid.
On the local front be treated to timeless ceremony and dance with songman Buangan and the Yulu Burri Ba Dancers and catch a ringside seat to watch the ascent to stardom of local MC Sachem and his hip hop ensemble 47.
TO OUR BELOVED vibers...
As you now know, we are expanding to 4 days, adding one more day of dancing, singing, chilling on the beach and workshops!
Island Vibe is kicking off early with an opening night party featuring Liquid Chocolate and a ramjam program of hot selectors in the Dub Dome on Thursday night!
