Charlie Mgee

Growing up in a tin shed with a veggie garden, a composting toilet and one solar panel for power in the south-west of Western Australia, Charlie lived the low-impact lifestyle from a young age and realised early on that you don’t need a lot to be happy in life.

In 2011, Charlie went off the study the regenerative design process of permaculture and soon after, formed Formidable Vegetable Sound System – a new kind of band based entirely around principles of sustainable living with the hope of inspiring people everywhere to grow their own food, raise chickens and generally make the world a better place.

More recently, Charlie and the band have performed at many Australian and international festivals, including Glastonbury (UK), Secret Garden Party (UK), BOOM (Portugal), Shambhala (Canada), Symbiosis (USA), Woodford (QLD) and Rainbow Serpent (VIC) to delightfully packed dance floors and venues.
