In regards to the volcano the festival is planning on moving forward accordingly. We are keen to assure our audience that safety is of paramount importance to us.
We have been following the advice of government agencies here in Bali and have been assured that Bestival can safely proceed due to the festival site being over 75km from the exclusion zone, all other tourist areas of Bali are also unaffected and the airport is fully operational.
From here on out 100,000 IDR from every ticket sold will be donated to the disaster fund to help those who have been / may be affected by the evacuation near Mt Agung.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and update if there are any changes. We are very much looking forward to the inaugural Bestival Bali this weekend.
