Going against all the odds, Good Vibrations Society was possibly one of the few festivals to embrace 2021 as the year to launch. The event is back for it’s second year, without the restrictions previously imposed on mid-pandemic festival goers. Hopes are high that this year is going to be pretty special.
Good Vibrations Society promises to offer a weekend of camping, great live music, wellness (including wild swimming), ecology and discussion alongside healthy and hearty food & drink – all taking place in the stunning Pippingford Park in the Ashdown Forest. With Johnny Scratchley (the voice behind Gentleman’s Dub Club) at the helm, closely supported by Richard Morris (Pippingford Park) and Doug Hunt (Sound guru) the event has its roots firmly set within the close knit, creative local community.
The event runs from Friday August 5th – Sunday August 7th 2022.
There are some incredible names on the line-up including the legendary Roy Ayers; The Brand New Heavies and Roni Size. Lesser know highlights on the bill include Lola Young (a name to watch having been nominated for a Brit Award earlier this year); Gentleman’s Dub Club (an 8-piece live dub/reggae/ska band whose live act you will not forget) and Hannah Williams and the Affirmations (who have worked with the likes of Jay-Z and Tyler the Creator). A real mix of established artists and new school boundary breakers covering Jazz, Funk, Soul, Drum N Bass and Acid Jazz. Not to be missed!
Good Vibrations Society is as much an opportunity to engage in a range of wellness and nature based activities as it is a music event. The Shala will offer an onsite sanctuary of wellness hosting an exciting line-up of world and devotional music, classes and workshops throughout the weekend. There will also be opportunities to take part in walks and wild swims allowing you to fully connect with the landscape.
Families and children are welcome to attend. The event has a capacity of 2500 so it’s a great size for starting off your family experience. Family weekend tickets are available for £350 (2 adults, 2 children aged 5-17) and Under 5’s attending with an adult can attend for free. The Hive will offer children’s workshops, entertainment and activities including juggling, robotics and arts and craft.
The event has a capacity of 2500 so tickets ARE limited. Standard weekend camping tickets are £125 with day tickets priced between £45-£55. Full details here.
