The idea behind SOUL VIBE SUNDAYS is to create what Camp Kilo already has – a great backyard BBQ with some feel-good music and some surprises along the way.

Whether you are hungover from the night before or out spending time with loved ones, this is a day to relax and pass the Sunday with family and friends. Kick back to DJs spinning Lovers rock, Dub, roots, dancehall reggae. Then get ready for some Afrobeat vibes. Feast on hearty roasts and knock back a cocktail or two!
