If you aren’t familiar with the concept of Good Island festival, you need to acquaint yourself and fast. The brainchild of Good Manners Music and Wondercore Island, Good Island is an immersive music and art festival that spans across 12 hours, two venues, and some of the most innovative talents our creative industries have to offer. Championing collaboration and progression in the arts, the event allows each artist to showcase their work in a ‘traditional’ sense, as well as in an experimental way or in partnership with other artists. In short, this will be unlike any festival you’ve stepped foot in.
To get a little more into the Good Island vibe, we asked some of the headliners to share the most memorable shows they’ve attended or played. Thanks to the eclectic collection of artists involved, what you’ll find below is the ultimate trip down creative memory lane, featuring artwork by Jean-Michel Basquiat, to spending NYE surrounded by fans in the New Zealand wilderness, and a very, very loose year at Strawberry Fields.
