Good Vibrations

Good Vibrations

Mark the 9th and 10th of June in your diaries as Positive Vibration is BACK.

After winning ‘Best New Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards 2016, Liverpool’s celebration of reggae music and Jamaican heritage returns to the Baltic Triangle for the most vibin’ weekend of the year full of cultural appreciation and positivity, as you’d expect.

The line-up this year is overflowing with reggae icons old and new, headlined by legendary 2-tone band The Selecter as well as dub legend Jah Shaka who is ready to stun us with his full sound system for an impressive five hour session. We’ll take that.

Positive Vibration might have one of the biggest music line-ups of the year complete with live bands, artists, DJs/Selectas and dub sound systems, but it is sooooo much more than that…

The two-day celebration of the musical genre sees the return of The Art of Reggae exhibition, a vibrant collaboration between the festival and the International Reggae Poster Contest. Showcasing 100 reggae-inspired posters created by illustrators and artists from every corner of the world, you’ll even get a chance to bid on the posters. Now that’s a souvenir to remember, if we may say so…

So we have music and we have art… what else could the guys at Positive Vibration possibly be spoiling us with!? Let’s start with one for the film buffs, with Picturehouse at FACT hosting a very special screening of Babylon on Thursday 8th June.

The festival will also play host to a plethora of food and drink stalls to get stuck into as well as a record fair and pop-up stalls to have a rummage through. Q&A’s with the artists involved will also take place for the super-fans. Get those burning questions at the ready.

Reggae superfan or not, Positive Vibration is going to be a good time for everyone – even the kids can get down. Yes, the Saturday edition of the festival promises a family affair with face painting, body painting and creative workshops for the young’uns.
