A multi-genre enigma, with soaring vocals, triumphant horns and deep bass grooves that fray the fabric of time & space.
Described as maverick, whimsical and anchored tight, their unique brand of dance music is crafted from gypsy, ska and funk roots, with the salty taste of sea shanties and a good splash of hip-hop and blues.
8Foot Felix sparked to life in May 2011 in the bohemian epicenter of Melbourne’s inner north. The launch of their debut EP ‘Captain’s Log’ ignited a Regal Ballroom bash headlined by boho stalwarts The Woohoo Revue. The fire set in on the Earth Stage at Eclipse 2012 and their headline slot on the Playground Stage at Rainbow Serpent Festival 2013 fanned the blaze.
Those gigs opened the door to their 2013 UK Tour by securing slots at Secret Garden Party and Boomtown Fair. Since then their annual headline slot at Rainbow Serpent’s Playground stage has seen them elevate their festival offering to new heights year by year. Intimate settings such as Melbourne’s Open Studio, Penny Black, The Spotted Mallard and the LuWoW also continue to play a crucial part in the mix, allowing the band to bring their dancing and theatricality into the heart of the crowd.
