About Me

Maverick, whimsical and anchored tight, 8Foot Felix’s magical brand of dancing music is crafted from gypsy, ska and funk roots, spiced with the salty taste of sea shanties and vibrant splashes of hip-hop and blues. Every gig is an epic journey that frays the fabric of time and space: the audience warms to their quirky musical theatricality, lights up when the beat kicks in, and cooks itself into a glowing, jumping, unified joy-field! It is with great honour and pleasure that 8Foot Felix take very seriously their role as vibration raisers for humanity.
8Foot Felix launched in 2011. The last seven years have taken them touring in the Americas - playing in San Francisco, at Burning Man and in Honduras - to the UK - playing Secret Garden Party, Wilderness and Boomtown Fair - and to New Zealand. At home, on the folk festival circuit, they have performed to crowds of all ages, taking in Port Fairy, Illawarra and Kangaroo Valley. And the main event on their calendar each year has been a recurring headline spot on the Playground Stage at Rainbow Serpent Festival.
