BESTIVAL BALI The Best in Bali

Award-winning UK festival Bestival is about to hit Bali on the September 30 and October 1 and has revealed a new round of acts.

Bestival Bali has added Pendulum, who will be performing an exclusive DJ set, to their already impressive line-up. Other new artists to hit the lineup include Bag Raiders, Kilter and Colour Castle.

The original announcement of artists for the inaugural event included Alt-J, Rudimental, Purity Ring, George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic, Cuban Brothers, Rob Da Bank and De La Soul.

Discussing the event, Bestival curator Rob da Bank says, “So here we are upping the ante with our first foray into Indonesia’s festival scene. We’ve got some old-school legends, hip hop wizardry and indie beauties, so we’re adding some serious antipodean vibes with the like of Pendulum, Bag Raiders and Kilter who are all smashing it down under”.

Bestival Bali will take place at Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK Cultural Park) where eclectic music from around the globe and the tropical landscape of Bali collide.

Since its inception in 2004 Bestival UK has been instrumental in the British festival scene, winning a array of awards. The festival attracts over 40,000 fans a year.

In the past Bestival has welcomed artists such as Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Missy Elliot, Amy Winehouse and The Cure.
