Listen to 5000 Miles by Lui Hill

Lui Hill

Electro soul music that fits perfectly in with the surf camp atmosphere. Hill’s music comes from personal experiences he’s had while travelling the globe, and we are excited to see him up on our Pine & Beach stage. You can hear influences from Australian superstars Flume & Chet Faker coming through in his voice & his beats.

From what we’ve heard he’s also got some skills on a skateboard so you’ll most probably see him ripping the SkateDeluxe miniramp. Check out the video and see for yourself.

Check out JPson

It’s hard to describe but check out the clip and see what you think for yourself. It’s perfect for the surf vibe you already have at the camp, and is great music to enjoy with the new friends you’re bound to make during your stay.

Make sure you get front row when JPson comes on stage, and enjoy the evening.

The individual vocals combined with epic instrumentals make this band a must see when you’re at our Pure Surf Camp Moliets.

Their debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, recorded in their garage was released in 2017 to critical acclaim and was nominated for the Americana Album of the year. This mix of blues, rock, indie & surfer rock is a perfect combo to get the party started along the Moliets coastline.
