Bestival expands to Bali, reveals eclectic lineup and venue
Bestival, one of the U.K.’s top boutique music festivals, has consistently hosted some of the best acts in dance music at the Isle of Wight and Toronto iterations of the event. The festival is now excited to announce that they will be expanding to Bali, Indonesia for the first time this fall.
It’s difficult to decide which is more impressive: Bestival Bali’s lineup or the venue. Rudimental and Pendulum will headline with DJ sets, alongside what is sure to be an outstanding performance from alt-J. The festival looks to the legends for support, bringing in hip-hop gurus De La Soul and funk music’s spiritual leader George Clinton. Purity Ring, Bag Raiders, and Bestival creator Rob da Bank round out the lineup, with more acts to be announced soon.
Bestival Bali is set to take place over 240 acres of tropical land at Indonesia’s Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park. Surrounded by 80-foot high cliffs, the breathtaking venue may be worth the trip alone. Taking place on September 30 and October 1, the festival promises to be a truly unique musical experience.
