Festivals don’t get anymore heavenly than this. The dreamy location is worth the trip alone, but that’s only the sun-soaked tip of it.

This year’s line up has some of the best worldwide music talent on offer. With the festivals ethos deriving from its immediate grass roots, Malasimbo prioritises its stunning surroundings, the environment, local music and arts culture, and of course, their infamous hedonistic good times vibe.

This year’s festival brings something for every taste, from emerging and new talent, legendary vocalists, jazz, funk, soul, dance fusion and crossover artists and not to mention sound system culture. These all sit alongside the best local and indigenous talent, arts, boat parties, and workshops.

The line-up this year includes indie folk singer-songwriter and guitarist Jose Gonzalez, soul-jazz fusion pioneers Roy Ayers and Lonnie Liston Smith, pioneer of spiritual jazz and jazz funk genres Omar and the exceptional 2013 Grammy award winners Robert Glasper Experiment.

Bringing the big party road blocking beats is solo artist Osulade, the twisted musical mash up showman, Mad Professor, legendary disco and party good times ambassador, Greg Wilson, and the finest party purveyors, Heavy Boogie. Other artists announced so far also include Mark De Clive–Lowe, Low Leaf, June Marieezy and Jordan Rakei.

Full three-day festival weekend tickets are just £82, flights are currently from £350, and don’t forget to budget for minimal spending and accommodation once there.
