Malaysian-made music festival, Good Vibes Festival, will return to The Ranch at Gohtong Jaya, Genting Highlands with award-winning international artists and much-loved local acts who have taken the world by storm. Now in its sixth year, #GVF2019 will be held on 20 and 21 July 2019 to provide a weekend filled with good vibes and memorable experiences. Doors open 3 pm onwards on both days.
#GVF2019 will feature a stellar line-up that organisers hope will exceed the festival’s best. At the top of #GVF2019 bill are hip-hop duo and Billboard’s 2017 Top Rap Collaboration winners Rae Sremmurd (“Powerglide”, “Guatemala”), known best for their song “Black Beatles” that soundtracked the Mannequin Challenge memes. To follow, the suave Grammy award-winning R&B singer-songwriter Daniel Caesar (“Best Part”, “Get You”) and the ethereal American ambient pop band Cigarettes After S** (“Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby”, “Apocalypse”), who revolutionised the dream-pop genre, will each take stage.
In an effort to turn things up for staunch fans of the festival whilst welcoming the new, the #GVF2019 festival grounds will be expanded into an adjacent field housing the new and improved Electric Fields, which will be transformed into the festival’s fully fledged third stage that will feature a mix of international and local acts. Headlining Electric Fields will be Norwegian DJ Cashmere Cat (“Quit”, “Trust Nobody”) with his blissful, otherworldly sound interlaced with flowing harps, clicking percussion, and contorted vocal samples, and Australian DJ Anna Lunoe (“I Met You”, “Stomper”), who is set to drive everyone into a dance frenzy with her chart-topping songs that has won over crowds at Coachella, Tomorrowland, and Lollapalooza.
Always up to give audiences “What They Want”, American rapper/singer-songwriter RUSS (“Losin Control”, “What They Want”), whose album “There’s Really A Wolf” is the first-ever hip-hop album to go platinum without features or production help, is reved-up to blow minds at #GVF2019. British alternative rock band, Nothing But Thieves (“Trip Switch”, “Amsterdam”) whose debut self-titled album shot to number 7 on the Official UK Chart and topped the Vinyl Album Charts, will make their Malaysian debut.
#GVF2019 also marks first-time appearances by South Korean acts such as alternative R&B singer-songwriter Dean (“D (half moon)”, “instagram”), whose 2016 EP jumped to no. 3 on the Billboard World Album Charts and has been likened to a young Usher; and the cinematic and versatile South-Korean producer and singer Rad Museum (“Tiny Little Boy”, “Dancing In The Rain”) who has made a name for himself in the R&B genre.
#GVF2019 will feature another two artists who have reached the dizzying heights of the Grammys, including Mura Masa (“Love$ick”, “Firefly”) who took home a gilded gramophone for his single “Walking Away”, and Baltimore-born rapper 6lack (“PRBLMS”, “OTW”) — whose album Free 6lack was nominated in 2018.
Other acts on the bill are Cuban-American Sabrina Claudio (“Belong To You”, “Confidently Lost”), who has been steadily winning fans with her sultry voice since her 2017 debut, Korean-American Yaeji (“raingurl”, “passionfruit”), known for her music that blends house and hip-hop with dreamy, understated vocals in both English and Korean, and San Holo (“We Rise”, “Light”), the Dutch DJ and producer who shot to fame when his remix of Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode” got 190 million views on YouTube in 2017.
Rounding off the list of international artists so far are Jess Connelly (“Turn Me Down”, “Wait”), the Australian-Filipino singer-songwriter whose debut album “How I Love” landed her on Spotify’s 2017 Artists To Watch list, and Jai Wolf (“Indian Summer”, “Starlight”), the New York-based electronic music producer ready to bring his indie rock-synth pop blends to Malaysia.
This year’s local lineup sees RYÖT JONES (“On My Knees”, “Dancing Shoes”) bringing their fresh festival funk to the stage, upcoming rap star Kidd Santhe (“Malaysiaku”, “Fumakilla”), and NEXT ORDER, a new supergroup by Malaysian DJ veterans Goldfish + JHin, and BATE, the DJ duo who have performed with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Tiësto, Zedd and Calvin Harris. Also featured are indie-folk triumvirate The Impatient Sisters (“Hey There Young Sailor”, “Comets and Stars”), Malaysian heartthrobs Midnight Fusic (“When Love Was Around”, “Lovesick”), electro duo Dizkopolis (“Work It Out”), indie-pop band Lost Spaces (“boxset.girlfriend”, “fake.guitars”), and the sweet, adolescent love tunes of Allester Shaun (“Blue”, “Sweet Babycakes”).
