In 2008 we started to hit our stride – both musically, and graphically! Which is to say – we started to play with some really great graphic designers! We also started to deliver some of the first recurring series Tribe Productions (now Sunset Labs) got into – including Lucid, Sunset Sounds, Root Riddims, Sunset Sessions & the monstrous Bass Bottoms series. Again we were able to work with some hugely talented artists including Bluetech, Ronin, David Starfire, Adham Shaikh, Gaudi, Daega Sound System, Shen, Dub Gabriel, Jef Stott & Drumspyder, Subatomic Sound System, Max Ulis, Liquid Stranger & Delhi 2 Dublin – many for their first visits to Victoria! We started giving the younger crowd more of what they wanted as well – with guests like Isaac Amor, DJ Leanne, Taal Mala & Miss Marz! Hope you enjoy this visual trip down memory lane…
For 32 years, Harmony has been a leading-edge lifestyle festival that celebrates the latest trends in health, music, arts, ecology, and spirituality. Created and seasoned in the trend-setting North Bay Area, Harmony is the original festival to appeal to the green lifestyle market. Over the past 5 years Harmony expanded into a major music festival and in 2009-10, Harmony added the Eco Rally Action Sports Skate Zone to attract a younger demographic. Through the introduction of the skateboard competition, Harmony Festival received national and international attention and achieved new record numbers for ticket sales and revenues.
The 2010 Festival reached record-breaking attendance estimated at 35,000 people over the weekend. Press outreach, both print and online, hit the mark with featured stories appearing in LA Times, Boston Globe and thousands of impressions on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Slightly Stoopid and Ms. Lauryn Hill rocked the main field. Eco Rally Skateboard Competition attracted the 7-16 year old demographic. This pro/am contest featured MTV, Village Voice and Rolling Stone youth oriented music. The second year of Harmony Festival’s financially successful Harmony Tea House featured freshly made baked goods, teas, live jazz and sacred music in an intimate setting.
This amazing gathering, a powerful fusion of art, music & spiritually has included performances from A Skillz, Gaudi, David Starfire, Phutureprimative, Emancipator and much more. Definitely take a look at this amazing show, and if you can, go check it out in person!
