Soulfest International in association with Channel [V] and MAX, have organised the return of Soulfest for 2015. Last year we saw the debut of “Australia’s first ever neo-soul, jazz, and hip -hop festival” featuring some of the genres greatest artists including Common, D’Angelo, Maxwell, and Musiq Soulchild. This years sophomore effort is looking to surpass its grand predecessor by including Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige, headlining the event with two queens of RnB & Soul. Accompanying them include the likes of Blackstar(Talib Kweli & Yasinn Bey formerly known as Mos Def), Miguel, Jill Scott, Jhene Aiko, De La Soul, Dwele, and many more. The influx of artists will be divided by two main stages, the Spotify Stage and the DJ Marquee stage over the 10 hour event.
To complement the quality music, festival attendees will get to enjoy the heart-warming essence of soul food and other local food trucks provided and curated by Event Producer Fernando Motti. Soulfest will also be be catering refreshments in the form of themed bars that will be serving a variety of drinks including imported beers, fine wine and spirits. For the sober music-goers, you can check in to an array of cafés serving excellent coffee and tea. Featuring a unique combination of some of the world’s finest music in a most blissful atmosphere, Soulfest 2015 is expected to be a remarkable experience.
