Now in it’s second year…Gold Coast destination festival SHAKAFEST brings together all things street, skate and music, today announcing the massive 2017 lineup headlined by Australian legends Grinspoon (as part of their comeback tour) together with Psych-Punk Duo DZ Deathrays and Hip Hop legends Butterfingers.
Bigger and better and back for its second year Shakafest is a reflection of the Gold Coast’s street scene combining Hip Hop, Grunge, Surf Rock, graffiti art as well as a massive half pipe with all round skaters to create the ultimate skate demo.
Finishing the bill are Alternative Indie band Tired Lion who’ve been making a massive splash on the music scene of late, Rapper Ivan Ooze who’s toured in the past with Wu Tang Clan, Ice Cube & Seth Sentry, New South Wales scallywags Goons Of Doom, Brisbane Indie Punk Band WAAX and local Gold Coast Rock favourites Trapdoor and Radolescent.
Promoter Tamie Bennett states ‘Shakafest aims to combine all of the Gold Coasts most loved past times into one unique mini festival by bringing together skate, a mixed genre lineup, live graffiti and market stalls. We are creating an experience that will appeal to a diverse community on the coast and we are happy to be the leader in in such a gathering.’
Shakafest goes down on Saturday 19th of August at The Miami Tavern Precinct, early bird tickets go on sale through Moshtix on the 10th of April 2017 at 9am.
