South-East Asia’s #1 electronic dance festival, Djakarta Warehouse Project, today shares its FOMO-inducing 2018 aftermovie. Shot at its special 10th anniversary edition in Bali, Indonesia, the stunning recap can be viewed at

The seven-minute extravaganza begins with sweeping shots of Bali’s sublime beauty spots before coming to rest at GWK Cultural Park, the awe-inspiring backdrop for this unique event. Overlooked by the 396 foot ‘Garuda Wisnu Kencana’ statue, the camera weaves between dancers performing a traditional ‘Tari Kecak’ routine, and then onto the three stages that hosted top-flight DJs from around the world.

Zipping between performances from Alesso, Major Lazer Soundsystem, Armin Van Buuren, DJ Snake, Mura Masa, Claptone, Dipha Barus, and a spelling-binding set from The Weeknd, the film showcases the breadth of talent on offer and the enduring appeal of the event. With all three days selling out in advance, festival goers came from over 38 countries including Austria, Ireland, New Zealand, and Sweden, as well as the local markets of Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand.

During its 10-year existence the festival and the concept behind it has grown and developed, with 2018 hailed one of its most exciting editions to date. The film is a testament to this expansion, and confidently ushers in a new decade of dance music in Indonesia. With under 5 months to go, fans can now look forward to Djakarta Warehouse Project’s 11th edition which returns to its original home in Jakarta on 13-15 December 2019.

We The Fest Wraps 2019 Edition by irvan wahyudi

WTF19 - Day 3 - - Joji on stage - 3.jpg

As the curtain falls on another monumental year for Ismaya Live’s flagship festival We The Fest, those that managed to get tickets can now take stock of what an incredible three days of entertainment it was. From captivating artist performances, to trendy fashion showcases and fun activations, We The Fest has proven once again why it is more than just a music festival. 

Since its inception in 2014 the event has been quick to gain mass popularity in Indonesia and further afield. Initially inviting crowds of 15,000, the event now hosts an audience of over 60,000 with artists playing across four stages, including a new WTF Park stage that showcased emerging talent across all three days. Festival goers came not just from South East Asia either, but from countries further afield including USA, Australia and China. With these big crowds come big artists, and this year the quality on show from both international and local acts was breath-taking. 

Day one kicked off with performances from home-grown talents Fourtwnty, The Adams and Indonesian icons Dewa19 ft. Ari Lasso, Dul Jaelani, before an epic collaborative show from Rad Museum and South-Korean rising star DEAN got the party well and truly started. Sublime performances followed from Alvvays, Bazzi, Sal Priadi and future bass pioneer Jai Wolf, before Australian heartthrob Troye Sivan took to the mainstage to a frenzy of cheers. Forming an instant connection with the crowd, the globally charting artist zipped through hits including ‘Youth’, ‘My My My!’, and ‘I’m So Tired’, with a chorus of “we want more!” echoing around the site as he left the stage. 

With the cobwebs brushed off day two got underway with a memorable performance from one of Indonesia’s highest-flying bands, Barasuara. Next came RAN with special guest and WTF returnee Ramengvrl, before focus turned to Anne-Marie’s exquisite pop show on the mainstage. With a recent album release in tow, Daniel Caesar took over proceedings with his unmistakable sound that soothed the crowd on another warm night in downtown Jakarta. British rock hall-of-famers Travis donned the stage next for their Indonesian debut, living up to all expectations with a set that will go down in We The Fest history. Playing classics including ‘Sing’ and ‘Flowers In The Window’, frontman Fran Healy interspersed each song with stories of his past making for a truly iconic show. The day was then capped off with electrifying sets from two Aussie heavyweight DJs, Anna Lunoe and Nina Las Vegas.

The final day brought yet more thrills, with Tulus and Indonesian super-star DJ Dipha Barus getting the party going again, while local talents Elephant Kind and .Feast brought their particular brands of indie-rock to We The Fest ears. One of the biggest crowds of the weekend came with the appearance of dream-pop four-piece Cigarettes After Sex, only to be nearly equalled by producer extraordinaire Cashmere Cat. Back at the mainstage 6LACK rattled through his hits before Joji provided a playful and intimate performance, which even included a rendition of ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’ from Toy Story. Then came headliners Rae Sremmurd who took things up a gear with their explosive energy and global hits including ‘Black Beatles’ and ‘Sunflower’, while Yaeji closed out stage 2 with her infectious house anthems. 

A key aim of Ismaya is to curate a festival that goes 'Beyond The Music', and this initiative proved as popular as ever, with punters making selfie stamps at WTF Post Office, watching films in the Cinema Club and checking out new and exciting brands at WTF Con. Another ambition this year was to spread a strong message of kindness, compassion and humility, with billboards that read ‘less egos more amigos’ and ‘if you can’t be nice be quiet’, covering the frontage of stage 3.

With post-festival blues already sinking in, fans can look forward to WTF 2020 which will undoubtedly exceed all expectations once again.

TOKiMONSTA Joins Sunny Side Up Tropical Festival 2019 Lineup by irvan wahyudi

SSU19 - Phase 2 - 60x75.jpg

Bali’s premier beach-side festival Sunny Side Up Tropical Festival 2019 announces the addition of TOKiMONSTA to the festival’s lineup for its sixth edition set to be held on 24 August 2019 at Manarai Beach House, Bali.

TOKiMONSTA joins Grammy Award-winning DJ and producer, Flume, and Britain’s up-and-coming singer, Grace Carter. TOKiMONSTA’s latest album, Lune Rouge, is one of her two latest albums that were released after she went through two brain surgeries due to a rare cerebrovascular condition called moyamoya. The surgeries diminished TOKiMONSTA’s ability to create and understand music which she described to sound like nothing but noise.

She slowly recovered and released a brand new album entitled Fovere in 2016 that features a track with Anderson .Paak called “Put It Down”. In 2017, she released her Grammy-nominated album Lune Rouge that features various collaborations including Yuna, Selah Sue, SAINTS, and IO Echo.

With the festival’s unique musical curation and Bali’s spectacular landscape, Sunny Side Up Tropical Festival has definitely become one of the most favorite beach-side music festivals in the region since its innaugral edition in 2014.

“One of the festival’s highlights this year is certainly Flume’s first ever live set in Indonesia,” said Sarah Deshita, Brand Manager of Ismaya Live, the organizer of the festival. “It will certainly be a different experience compared to his DJ set back in Djakarta Warehouse Project 2016,” Sarah continued.

The festival’s most up-and-coming act, Grace Carter is the UK’s most sought after act in recent years. She has toured with Dua Lipa for the latter’s “The Self-Titled Tour” in 2017 and has sits on the third place of BBC’s “Sound of 2019” list, curated by the UK’s most prominent figures in the music industry.

Tickets to Sunny Side Up Tropical Festival 2019 starts from IDR 1,000,000 for the Presale category. A special buy-4-get-5 Group Package is also available for Rp4,000,000. Tickets are available online at Prices excluding 10% government tax.

Special travel packages that include a stay at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort are also available starting from IDR 4,900,000. Hotel packages are available at
