Maverick, whimsical and anchored tight, 8Foot Felix have crafted their unique theatrical dancing music from gypsy, ska and funk roots, with lashings of hip-hop, latin and blues. Feel the crowd warm up to their quirkiness and then ignite when the beat drops, immersing itself in a glowing, jumping, unified joy-field!
8Foot Felix take very seriously their role as vibration raisers for humanity, helping create tangible moments of Utopia, and will thus be very much at home in this Garden of Pleasure.
From their first gig at Melbourne’s bohemian epicentre Open Studio in 2011, 8Foot Felix have demonstrated this passion and flair for transporting audiences to pleasurable realms as they get the feet in the house moving with a mind of their own. This special talent has grown through tours to Nevada’s Burning Man Festival, the UK’s Secret Garden Party and Boomtown Fair, and over the course of their 6-year Friday night headlining of Rainbow Serpent Festival’s Playground Stage.
In 2015 they recorded ‘Mad Isle’ at Sing Sing Studios, released at a sell-out show at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel in May 2016. A fresh recording is set for release in time for Pleasure Garden 2017.
