OCTOBER 30 – NOVEMBER 1, 2015
is our TENTH ANNIVERSARY of Island Vibe!
Here at Island Vibe HQ, we’re frothing to announce the largest ska band in the southern hemisphere – the epic brainchild of the right reverend Nicky Bomba – the mighty Melbourne Ska Orchestra!
Having exhilarated music lovers across the globe at legendary events from WOMADadelaide, Bryon Bay Blues and Falls Festival to the iconic Glastonbury and Montreal Jazz Festivals – it’s time for Island Vibe punters to surrender to the seductive harmonies, horns & beats and lose yourself to the universal intoxication of SKA.
Natiruts … are the ubiquitous stars of Brazilian Roots Reggae. Their sound is a unique mix of Latino rhythms infused with Reggae, Bass and Dub good vibrations. As Brazil’s most influential and 100% independent Reggae band, Natiruts feature regularly alongside Damian Jr Gong Marley. Lyrically, Natiruts shares messages of eco-consciousness and universal Rasta truths of Harmony, Love & Respect. Jah!
Already confirmed are the UK’s most famous soundsystem, The Mungo’s Hifi, featuring upcoming Reggae, Dub, Roots singer Charlie P.
Together they will be skanking it Island Vibe style! Mungo's HiFi have been a solid force in the world of Soundsystem culture for a number of years, hosting sensationally bombastic stages. Whilst Charlie P. is a very versatile artist, already making an impact within the Reggae scene.
We also welcome back Hugo & Treats, whom closed the festival last year on a mega high note. Certainly a highlight for many of you we are sure. And of course easy-going Brisbane lads Kingfisha return, hot on the heels of an amazing release of remixes from some epic artists such as JPod, The Funk Hunters, Crazy Daylight and many more...
