Love Fest spinnin’



For the sixth time in five years, the Love Festival, a premiere electronic and hip-hop gala, will find its way to Oahu shores. The celebrated shindig, which routinely features an impressive array of world-class electronic and hip-hop performers, has been a top draw with Hawaii's digital generation and a consistent sellout. This year, with Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park as its backdrop and a capacity nearing 4,000, its creators are hoping for a record crowd.

"When I first started this, I didn't think it would become Hawaii's flagship festival for this kind of music," admits DJ G-Spot, of homegrown Double-O-Spot Productions, who has commissioned renowned turntable talents Richard "Humpty" Vission, DJ Kam, Josh David and World Freestyle Rap champion Supernatural and more than a dozen other DJs to rock the crowd this weekend. "But it's grown significantly. There are people who won't ever miss it. There are even people who will come all the way from the mainland to attend."


The Love Festival

Where: Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park, 400 Farrington Highway, Kapolei

When: 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. tomorrow

Tickets: $25 presale, all ages

Info: 591-3500 or thelovefestival.com

So popular is the multi-city tour's Hawaii stop that co-promoters Double-O-Spot and SoCal-based Go Ventures have begun offering travel packages which include free admission to the event, along with a host of other Honolulu happenings with the purchase of airfare and room and board for partiers flying in from the West Coast.

The nocturnal gathering, which runs from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. this Saturday night/Sunday morning, features three stages, a video arcade, food and drink concessions and a vendor village.

Other notable entertainers include DJ Reza, DJ Rene, Jackal, AMFM Alexander, Lee Landis, heralded U.S. DMC battle champ DJ Rectangle, and Hawaii's two-time International Turntablist Federation world champs Nocturnal Sound Krew, along with a large contingent of local DJs.
