Island Vibe will be mashing up the reggae, dub, funk, soul and bass over 4 deadly stages. Applications are opening April 7, but we’ve booked a few acts in advance - here’s a sneak peek...

NATTALI RIZE

In 2014, Nattali Rize, of Blue King Brown, began expanding her creative process as a solo artist: living, writing and recording in Kingston. 

Nattali and her universal World Beat sound lead a wikid collaborative project with Jamaican Drum and Bass duo ‘Notis' aka Heavy Weight Rockaz. They dropped an EP together, ‘New Era Frequency’ with an epic run of performances in USA and Australia in 2015. Nattali Rize is a woman with conscious conviction, moving hearts and minds, worldwide. She drops her debut album in 2016, with tours lined up in: Japan, USA and Europe — returning to Australia for the mighty Island Vibe festival with full Jamaican / International band.
