Good Vibes Festival lived up to its namesake last year as 8,000 revelers gathered at The Ranch at Gohtong Jaya in Genting Highlands for its highly anticipated return to the scenic location.
And we can once again rejoice, as the organisers Future Sound Asia have announced that Malaysia’s favourite boutique festival return to The Ranch in 2017 on August 12 and 13.
Last year’s two-day affair gave Malaysians a newfound hope that the festival scene was still alive and kicking.
Due to government initiated administrative guidelines that banned outdoor dance music events, Malaysia has been without a proper outdoor music festival since 2014. It was a sad time for music lovers across the country.
But after a yearlong hiatus, Good Vibes came back even stronger in 2016, with British duo Disclosure’s long-awaited debut restoring faith to the masses with an incredible DJ set that mesmerized the entire festival.
The lineup for this year’s event hasn’t yet been announced, but past acts have included The Smashing Pumpkins, Modest Mouse Ellie Goulding, Empire of the Sun and !!! (Chk Chk Chk). And the 2016 edition featured Ta-Ku, The Temper Trap, The 1975, Alina Baraz, Mark Ronson and Ryan Hemsworth—so we’re likely in for another wild ride.
We’ll keep you up to date with news coming from the Good Vibes camp as it comes in.
