Good Vibes Festival in Genting Highlands, Malaysia has just announced two more exciting acts: Vince Staples and SZA, who will be the last two artists announced for the July festival.
Staples hails from Long Beach, California, and has steadily garnered critical acclaim ever since his debut in 2014 with the mixtape Hell Can Wait. A markedly prolific rapper, he's put out a release every year since then, notably his two full-length albums Summertime '06 in 2015 and last year's Big Fish Theory.
SZA (real name Solana Rowe) became one of the most exciting voices in American R&B off the strength of her long-awaited debut Ctrl, released a little over a year ago. Signed to Top Dawg Entertainment alongside Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolBoy Q and others, SZA has shot to ever greater heights thanks to collabs with Maroon 5 and Cardi B and also a feature on the TDE-curated companion album to Black Panther (which Staples was also on).
Both join a lineup led by Lorde, alt-J, The Neighbourhood and more.
Good Vibes Festival 2018 will take place on 21 and 22 July at The Ranch, Gohtong Jaya, Genting Highlands. The festival is open to those aged 18 and above. Tickets are available here.
