Did you happen to catch SOULFEST in 2014??
Last year’s line-up for SOULFEST included the likes of D’Angelo, Maxwell, Common, and Mos Def which caught the attention of everyone around the world including the one and only ?uestlove.
And this year? I believe the world is going to go absolutely MANIC.
“Soulfest International in association with Channel [V] and MAX, are thrilled to announce the return of Soulfest for 2015. With good music, good food and good vibes, Soulfest is the only music event in Australia and New Zealand dedicated to bringing you some of the world’s finest contemporary Neo-Soul and Hip-Hop Artists. This unique Music and Cultural Festival saw tens of thousands of music lovers come together peacefully in 2014 to celebrate their passion for soul and hip-hop, and this year we are pleased to announce over 20 artists and DJ’s across two stages in the serene settings of The Domain in Sydney and The Sidney Myer Music Bowl and Kings Domain District in Melbourne.”
The October festival of rap and neo-soul will be headed up by two Queens of hip-hop: Ms Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige. Wow!
I just wrote about wanting to see Lauryn Hill live and now THIS happens? Crazy.
SOULFEST, you have made me one happy lady.
Joining the Queens, the festival will also see the likes of Jhenè Aiko, Jill Scott, Miguel, Black Star (aka Mos Def and Talib Kweli), Dwele, Eric Benèt, BJ The Chicago Kid, De La Soul, and so much more. Honestly, it’s like my entire iPod library will be rocking the SOULFEST stage.
What else should you expect?
“Over 20 live acts and DJ’s will feature throughout the 10-hour day, across 2 main stages, the Spotify Stage plus a DJ Marquee. Soulfest will also feature an expansive array of cuisine featuring authentic Soulfood and pop-up eateries curated by Event Producer Fernando Motti. With an array of themed bars featuring fine wine, imported beers and spirits through to cafés serving some of the world’s best coffee, Soulfest will be a unique opportunity to see and hear some of the world’s finest artists in a relaxed atmosphere.”
This is truly going to be EPIC and you can be assured that The 5 to 9 Life will be there to capture the action!! Woohoo!! Will you be attending?
