In our never ending quest for release from the daily grind there few things that make life more enjoyable than sun, music and good friends. Vibes is all about getting away from the everyday, switching off, and reconnecting with the things that make your soul sing and feel the vibe.
Vibes began as the original Summer all day dance music event at the Bondi Pavilion in 1994, attracting 1200 people who gleefully took to the idea of dancing in the sun until sunset with some of the best DJs and bands in the world. Over 10 years more than 90,000 people attended Vibes across Australia & New Zealand. From humble beginnings at Bondi Beach it became a touring extravaganza.
Vibes is renowned for showcasing acts on the brink of mainstream success; Jamiroquai, St Germain, Propellerheads, Norman Jay, Jose Padilla, M.J. Cole, Groove Armada and Rae & Christian, with so many more artists and DJ’s we’d need another website to hold all the names.
Vibes showcases a blend of summer lounge and groove sounds across funk, soul, hip hop, beats, house, breaks, reggae, dub from both live performers and DJs, attracting mixed tribes and diverse crowds who are all there for the music and each others company. Vibes is where everyone is part of the ‘happening’, that has always made this great event truly EXCEPTIONAL.
Vibes on a Summer’s Day has confirmed an ahead-of-schedule expansion into Queensland as the return of the legendary All-Dayer piques interest across the border. The Triffid venue owners and promoters are thrilled to announce they will be hosting Vibes On A Summer’s Day in Brisbane on Saturday January 23, 2016.
