The much-loved, homegrown Good Vibes Festival (GVF) will evolve this year into a 2-day international outdoor music festival on 12th August and 13th August 2016 at its new verdant venue The Ranch @ Gohtong Jaya in Genting Highlands.
The 3rd edition of #GoodVibesFest promises a bucketlist line-up with twice as many international and Malaysian acts as before.
The first of 2 announcements, #GoodVibesFest has secured headliners including Manchester’s purveyors of infectious pop hooks and sprawling electro sonics The 1975, Irish indie chart favourites Two Door Cinema Club, and anthemic indie-rock 5-piece The Temper Trap .
Joining the aforementioned powerhouses are Canadian electro-pop pair Purity Ring, Australia’s own renaissance man and beatmaker Ta-Ku, and producer and remix wizard Ryan Hemsworth .
From the homefront, acts announced so far include Enterprise , indie-pop maven Froya, Jumero, dream-pop pairing Juno and Hanna, scene veterans Seven Collar T-shirt, riotous pop Ampangites The Fridays, and Edwin from They Will Kill Us All’s new rock and roll outfit Toko Kilat.
Expect the full line-up announcement from #GoodVibesFest in the weeks to come.
UPDATE (21st June):
Good Vibes Festival’s new and improved incarnation adds 18 new acts from its first announcement in May.
Joining the party are Grammy award-winning producer Mark Ronson (Uptown Funk, Valerie), electronic music wunderkinds Disclosure (You & Me, Latch), brother-sister folk duo Angus & Julia Stone (Big Jet Plane, The Heartbreak), post-punk revivalists Tokyo Police Club (Hot Tonight, Wait Up) and neo-R&B songstress Alina Baraz (Fantasy, Make You Feel).
