The idea for the Irie Vibes Music Festival came about late in 2012, in part due to the lack of East Coast reggae outlets. There are so many great reggae-based bands on the East and we hope to expose fans to these amazing musicians that exude notions of positivity and social responsibility. This is a fully grassroots festival and all organizers are volunteering their time and resources to make this festival a great experience. The first annual Irie Vibes Music Festival was created by a small group of individuals and held August 2nd-4th, 2013 in Gruetli-Laager, TN. With the goal of bringing bands, musicians, family, friends, and fans together in an encouraging environment, the festival was extremely successful. We expect even more success in 2014 in Tamassee, SC. Members of Sun-Dried Vibes, the band hosting the festival and whose song became the name of the event, are working hard along with volunteers to bring this festival to fruition! “Our mission as a band has been to create a family of like-minded musicians and fans. Conscious and positive music is on the rise and people in this world want to see a change. We are a part of that movement and it’s our duty to put it in motion. This is our effort to bring all the folks we have encountered over the years and put all our collective energies together to spread the One Love Movement.” - Zach Fowler of Sun-Dried Vibes Our sponsors thus far include Gaiatecture, a company concentrated on sustainable building practices. With the ambition of creating a socially and environmentally responsible festival, we believe that we will have a unique opportunity to bring an amazing community together!
