Who are you and what band do you play in?

I am imbi from imbi the girl and I sing/rap.

Great! Hello IMBI. Today we’re talking about Festival of the Sun in Port Macquarie! Firstly, have you played it before? If so, what were your experiences last time? If not, what have you heard about the event and what are you looking forward to about it?

I haven’t played any festival before, so I am beyond chuffed to be playing FOTSUN! I’m a pretty keen bean for the festival as a whole but also the line up is stunning, so I’m keen to have some phat boogies <3

Top 3 things you have to do at the beach, go! 

Lay nakey in the sun, put on some sweet vibey jams, and stay hydrated!

Top 3 things you have to do when camping! Go!

Talk about the universe with your friendos, stare at the sky until you can’t focus on the stars because your eyes go blurry and blow your nose! Crazy amounts of dirt n dust get up there, it gets hectic if you leave it for too long.

Specifically for those who aren’t familiar with your music, what can we expect from your set at FOTSUN?

You can expect a dreamy, vibey, lil’ bit dorky ride that’ll leave ya feeling something. I can’t say exactly what you’ll take from it, but I promise it’ll be something good.

What are YOU expecting from the crowd at FOTSUN and perhaps more generally the festival itself?

I’m expecting a bunch of love and goofy shit <3

Are there any other acts yours excited to see? One stage = no clashes!

Sampa The Great for sure!

Tell me a little bit about 2017 to date for you? What have been some of the highlights?

Well it’s all only really begun this year, so shit’s been crazy and overwhelming and wonderful! It’s been a fkn trip and a half already, I can’t wait for what the future holds!

Other than FOTSUN, what does the rest of the year hold for you?

I’ll be taking the rest of December (more or less) off for some self love and rejuvenation. We all gotta put ourselves first and give ourselves time to reflect and recharge so we don’t burn out!
