Waitangi weekend music festival
East Coast Vibes is coming back to Gisborne on Saturday 8th Feb, Waitangi weekend 2014.
After a successful launch in 2013, we're doing it all over again with 10 hours music and good vibes at the Gisborne Soundshell on Midway Beach. And this time we've got Aotearoa's hottest bands as well as two international acts, bringing together the creme of roots, reggae, pop, oldschool, hiphop and soul goodness for a day of laid back summer vibes.
East Coast Vibes is a fully licensed R18 event with a laid back atmosphere, and we'll have your usual festival favourites including a well stocked bar, a decent food zone and market stalls with a range of clothing, music and festival merchandise etc.
For a premium experience, we have a VIP zone with 200 tickets available. You'll be treated like a VIP from the moment you arrive. Check out the website for more info or email VIP@eastcoastvibes.co.nz for details.
Headlining the festival is Hawaiian reggae band The Green. The Green formed in O‘ahu, Hawai‘i, in 2009. The group began as a vehicle for six different members of Hawai‘i’s tight-knit music scene to record a few songs and have a bit of fun along the way. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2010, earned both critical and commercial acclaim, and was awarded iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year.
1814 have fast become a major draw card on the New Zealand Summer Festival circuit playing 200+ shows a year at home and Australia. 1814 started out in 2004 and have since gained a huge reputation for their live shows and extensive touring throughout New Zealand, being on the road months on end. Their debut album Jah Rydem was released in 2008 and made the NZ top 20 album charts. It was placed #1 along with three top 10 singles in the Independent Music NZ (IMNZ) charts during 2010.
Our full lineup for 2014 includes:
