Bestival is a wondrous world of discovery and adventure that will inspire peace, love, and dancing and also happens to be an award-winning boutique music festival originating from the UK. Good news for festival-lovers from this side of the world, they’re bringing Bestival to Bali’s Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park this September.
You can expect an eclectic jam-packed line-up of old friends and new from Alt-J to electric duo, Purity Ring to legendary hip-hop trio De La Soul. Hailing from Australia, new artists to join the ranks include electro-duo, Bag Raiders, multi-instrumentalist, Kilter, and the tech-house powerhouse, Colour Castle. Not forgetting multi-platinum selling Pendulum, who will be playing an exclusive DJ set in their iconic, electronic rock style as well as dealers of funky music George Clinton Parliament-Funkadelic. Local acts are also in the line-up like roots reggae band, Marapu, and Stars and Rabbit.
If camping on festival grounds ain’t your thing, Gig Life Asia (GLA) has got you covered. Offering 2 packages for concert goers, the Golden Superior and the Golden Deluxe, with the option which allows customisation of the length of stay – guests can now check in and out up to two days before or after (check in on Sept 27/28 and/or check out on Oct 2/3 for SGD 70 per night.)
The option of a VIP upgrade is also available at an additional cost of SGD 345 – this includes access to VIP area with VIP viewing, VIP bar, and VIP bathrooms.
On top of the above, GLA will also be collaborating with partners to offer their customers discounts and perks from bars/clubs in Bali especially for guests who would like to come a day before the event (eg. free entry/free shuttle bus from hotel to club, free cocktail.)
