HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Island music in Hawaii was in decline a few years ago due to several factors. Hawaii’s Finest Clothing is committed to doing its best to bring island music to life here in Hawaii. In late 2012, they launched the Revive the Live campaign to bring Island Music back to the forefront of Hawaii entertainment.

In September 2014, they launched the Revive the Live Music Festival (RTLMF) and brought local music back to Hawaii’s most iconic stage, the Waikiki Shell. They followed the inaugural festival of the 2nd annual Revive the Live Music Festival and were sold out with a crowd of over 8,000 people. In 2016, Hawaii’s Finest extended its annual music festival to three nights, adding a second night of local music and a third night reserved for traditional Hawaiian and contemporary music. The festival attracted over 15,000 people from all over the world.

RTLMF’s goal is to celebrate and perpetuate the revival of Island and Hawaiian music live in Hawaii. This year, Hawaii’s Finest will definitely move its festival to Kamehameha Day weekend, June 9, 10 and 11. All three evenings will focus on Island and Reggae music and feature over 20 local artists. This year will feature Legends Fiji, Norm, Ho’onu’a, Pati, Baba B., Opihi Pickers, Maoli, Ekolu, Mana’o Company, Bruaddah Waltah, Kapena, Ho’aikane, BET, Leahi, Malino, Micah G, PeniDean, Kolea, Ten Feet and more!
