A fantastic weekend of sunshine and good times, Bestival in Bali has been truly incredible. With amazing music, circus madness, delicious food and Bestival’s uniquely creative style, all set in the stunningly beautiful GWK Cultural Park, our inaugural Indonesian outing has been out of this world. We want to say a heartfelt thank you to the Bali Bestival crowd for making it so special.

    “What an epic weekend! Mind-blowing location, insane music and a fantastic crowd all together made our first foray into Southeast Asia one to remember. Big thanks to everyone that came. Can’t wait until next year. Watch this space…!” Rob da Bank

    Heart-stirring headline performances from alt-J, Rudimental and Pendulum with momentous sets from De La Soul, George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic, The Cuban Brothers, Purity Ring, Colour Castle, Kilter, Ras Muhamad, Stars and Rabbit and an immense array of local acts across three stages, fuelled the party atmosphere. Add in all the jaw-dropping visual spectacles, iconic installations including a 7-metre Love-bot, a secret disco and our trademark loving touch and you’ll be in no doubt why Bestival exceeded all expectations for all the fun-filled festivalgoers who joined us across the weekend from all over the globe.

    Providing the backdrop to the first ever Southeast Asian Bestival, was the stunning Garuda Wisnu Kencana. With breath-taking vistas across the tropical landscape of Bali, and with over 240 acres of parkland centred around 25m high limestone-carved cliffs, this beautiful venue was the perfect spot to host some of the biggest international and local talent over Bestival’s two days.
