SDV will be heard, since their inception in 2010 the group has performed around 275 dates a year. The trio of road warriors have two full length albums under their belt and a new one in the works for 2015. Sun-Dried Vibes took home back to back awards for South Carolina's Rock Band of the Year in 2012& 2013 voted on by the SC Music Awards and were voted Charlotte's Best Local Band 2012 by the Readers of Creative Loafing.

This festival along with a headlining tour in the US Virgin Islands was the icing on the cake in 2014.
