Bestival Branches out to Asia; Bestival Bali 2017
The good ship HMS Bestival is setting sail for new shores, with news reaching us that their first foray into Asia kicks off in Bali on 30th September and 1st October 2017.
Taking place at the incredible, mind-blowing venue, Uluwatu’s Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK Cultural Park), Bestival will entertain the audience with it’s trademark blend of immersive spaces and eclectic programming
Bestival curator Rob da Bank says: “Well I can’t think of a better place in the world to do a new festival than Bali – a beautiful country, incredible culture, great music and don’t even get me started on the surf, history, nature and people… We are honored to be bringing Bestival to Bali and promise to deliver a sublime festival experience reflecting being on the Island Of Gods from funk pioneer George Clinton and hip hop royalty De La Soul to indie heroes alt-J and Purity Ring it’s gonna be the best!”
Providing the backdrop to the first ever show in Southeast Asia, is the stunning Garuda Wisnu Kencana. With breath-taking vistas across the tropical landscape of Bali, and with over 240 acres of parkland centered around 25m high limestone-carved cliffs, this beautiful venue will host some of the biggest international and local talent over two days.
