Good Island will present a sweet little snapshot of some of the most progressive music and art talent from across Australia when it hits up Bella Union and The Curtin this February. Local labels Good Manners and Wondercore Island will collaborate with i-D and Niche Productions to run the festival, which may just feature your favourite local music, visual or multi-disciplinary artist — either existing or soon-to-be.

The festival aims to showcase creativity across multi-disciplined art forms — so you won't just be hearing good things, but seeing them too. The artists taking part will showcase their work twice throughout the event on Saturday, February 4 between 3pm and 3am, performing one traditional and one collaborative or experimental take on their work. 

The lineup includes a whole host of local talent along the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote's Nai Palm, visual artist Angie Pai, filmmaker Freya Esders, four-piece band Jaala and photographers Wilk and Phebe Schmidt. Oscar Key Sung and Kllo will be there too on the decks. There'll be a pop-up radio station housed in The Curtin, and if you can't get out of work that weekend, don't stress: all art created at the event will be exhibited (and sold) the week after.
