PLUS MANY MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED
The 1975The 1975 have made a record that captures the exhilarating feeling of falling in love and the devastation of breaking-up and all the fun and drama in between. CLICK FOR MORE
The 1975 have had the sort of breakthrough that only happens once a decade. Healy, Adam Hann (guitar), Ross MacDonald (bass) and George Daniel (drums) formed at school on the outskirts of Manchester ten years ago. After years of honing their sound, 2013’s debut album revealed a band who could blend accessible and anthemic choruses with an artistic aesthetic.
DISCLOSURE (DJ SET)
Disclosure (DJ set)It’s impossible to imagine a world without Disclosure, so profound and wide-reaching has their influence been on the musical landscape this decade. CLICK FOR MORE
Their extraordinary debut album ‘Settle’ (2013) consolidated their place at the forefront of a new wave of electronic music. It topped the charts, won numerous accolades and ushered in a new age that opened up dance music for the next generation of young music fans while refreshing and rejuvenating the scene for the rest.
TOKYO POLICE CLUB
Tokyo Police ClubNothing gold can stay, but radness is forever. CLICK FOR MORE
So say Tokyo Police Club, who are set to release their first batch of new music since the enterprising and vaulting 2014 LP Forcefield. Now ten years on from their 2006 debut EP, the Toronto four-piece are looking back to the energy and spirit of that formative era while keeping an eye on the future. And with the two-part and self-released Melon Collie and the Infinite Radness EP’s being let loose on both ends of 2016, lead singer/bass player and principal songwriter Dave Monks, drummer Greg Alsop, keyboardist/guitarist Graham Wright, and guitarist Josh Hook have harnessed that primal and instinctual joy to make Tokyo Police Club’s tightest, brightest, and certainly raddest batch of songs to date.
ALINA BARAZAlina Baraz, a 21 year old Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter, is the ``next leading star of the emerging class of leftwing pop singers.’’ CLICK FOR MORE
Alina invites listeners on an explorative journey that challenges their perspective and frees the mind of all boundaries.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, and the first child in her family born in America, Alina was introduced to music at a young age by her classically-trained parents. At 19, she discovered her passion for songwriting during the creation of her first song Roses Dipped in Gold. Following her new-found passion, Alina quickly relocated to Los Angeles to pursue her music career full-time.
Alina eventually caught the attention of electronic musician Galimatias, who she connected with via SoundCloud after writing and recording her own lyrics over one of his previously-released instrumentals, which would ultimately become their first collaboration, entitled “Drift”. Over a year later, their work culminated into the Urban Flora EP, a comprehensive trove of their collaborations to date.

The FridaysCheesy-pop-music-played-by-easily-satisfied simpletons, but pop with substance, played as catchiest as possible, married with punk rock and pop art leanings in all the right places. CLICK FOR MORE
2015 finds The Fridays in (relatively) high gear; the previous year the band dished out their first official release since 2010’s Pavilion Is For Losers/Kosher Single, the ‘Dinosaur’ self-titled CD which consisted of three years’ worth of home demos, bsides and various rarities.

Purity Ring is a Halifax/Montreal-based duo comprised of Corin Roddick and Megan James. Megan’s remarkable voice is at once ecstatic and ethereal, soaring joyfully through Corin’s carefully chopped beats, trembling synths, and skewed vocal samples. The most exciting thing about Purity Ring is the overriding sense that their live performance innovations and their exceptional debut Shrines are merely the beginning of a collaboration whose remarkable chemistry is sure to bear much more to come – future pop, in every sense of the phrase.

The Temper Trap in 2016 is a consolidation of what made the band matter to the people in the first place. The title Thick As Thieves seemed a natural choice. Anthemic, direct, up, emotive music, typified by the first three songs that came : ‘So Much Sky’, ‘Summer’s Almost Gone’ and ‘Burn’. The Temper Trap could easily have continued knocking out various versions of ‘Sweet Disposition’ if all they cared about was getting bigger and bigger. But they didn’t.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PHASE 1 AND PHASE 2 ARTIST LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENTS?
The artist lineup announcements only refer to when the lineup is announced. This means that the Phase 1 Artist Lineup is simply the first batch of artists we’ve announced, so Phase 2 will be the second batch of artists announced. Artist lineup phases have NOTHING to do with ticket phases.

DOES PHASE 3 MEAN THAT I GET TO STAND CLOSER TO THE STAGE? WHY IS IT MORE EXPENSIVE?
Good Vibes Festival is a free standing festival – there aren’t any allocated areas for any particular phase of tickets. Phase 3 tickets are more expensive because they’re released the latest – so the earlier you buy tickets, the less you pay!
YOU’VE ONLY ANNOUNCED THE PHASE 1 ARTIST LINEUP. WILL THERE BE ANY OTHER ARTISTS ON THE LINEUP?
Don’t worry there are many more acts to be announced. Stay tuned for updates!
WILL ONE DAY FESTIVAL TICKETS BE AVAILABLE?
