Formidable Vegetable Sound System + Mobius Loop + DJ Jon Bongly
June 30, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - July 1, 2017 @ 2:00 am£5 – £8
Possibly the only band to promote the joys of vegetable gardening through dance music, Formidable Vegetable Sound System are the world’s most successful experiment in ‘ecological electroswing’. With epic live shows consisting of antique beets, ukulele quirk, strings and hyperactive horns, the band has only one goal: to pound simple solutions for sustainability deep into your consciousness in the funkiest way possible.
Having made it into every corner of the globe over the past four years from Glastonbury Festival to the headquarters of the UN, Formidable Vegetable Sound System is paving the way through their special brand of musical activism towards simple solutions to some of the worlds’ biggest problems and are rapidly becoming a favourite on the Australian and international festival circuit, having played alongside Fat Freddy’s Drop, Thom Yorke and The Rolling Stones.
Realising that music is one of the best tools for bringing about cultural change, Formidable Vegetable Sound System frontman, Charlie Mgee has dedicated his musical mission to composing swingin’ tunes on a ukulele about plants, peak-oil and permaculture to inspire everyone to create the world they want to live in starting with their own front yards.
A Magic Garden regular and with good reason, DJ Jon Bongly specialises in feelgood beats and retro remix – phenomenal sounds from electro swing, pulsing techno & wriggling tropical rhythms.
We are open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm. Happy Hour is 5-7pm!
