SAGA Music Festival will have its inaugural event in just under two weeks, and things are already shaping up to make it one of the best festivals in the region.
Situated at the breath-taking Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park in Bali, Indonesia, the festival will run on December 28th and 29th. To make sure their debut doesn't go unnoticed, SAGA has roped in several gargantuan names, such as DJ Snake, KSHMR and AXWELL Λ INGROSSO to headline the festival.
Trance legend, MaRLo has been billed as a special guest performer and FKJ will treat the crowd to a special sunset session. Other international support include Chace, Cesqeaux and Moksi as they bring the incredibly rare Barong Family Stage to SAGA. Chris Lake, Dave Seaman, Dropgun, Garmiani, Jon Rundell, Marc Benjamin, Martin Eyerer, Martin Jensen, Rave Republic, Seeb and TWRK have also been announced to perform at the festival.
SAGA Music Festival, Bali's first locally owned, organized and executed multi-day and stage festival has announced the names of the two stages at the festival as well. The main stage, Gate Of The Gods, and a second stage, Nightowls Temple, are suited to go hand-in-hand with the festival's theme, World Of Colours, which represents people from all over the world convening in Bali to celebrate music and love as one.
With the recent eruption of Mount Agung, SAGA has released a statement regarding the safety of the festival attendees,
"With respect to the volcanic activities surrounding Mount Agung, for the time being the activity has decreased and the airport is operating normally with flight service fully restored.
While it is impossible to predict how the volcano will behave in the coming weeks and months, SAGA Festival would like to remind the public to heed news with caution and be wary of sensationalized reporting.
As of writing, it’s business as usual outside of the exclusion zone, which is limited to a 7.5km radius surrounding Mount Agung. SAGA Festival, which is located at GWK Culture Park, is 78km away from Mount Agung and Bali’s main tourist hubs of Kuta and Seminyak are more than 65 kilometers away from the exclusion zone with the airport also almost 70 kilometers away.
In addition, Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism have given us their support on the official ‘Wonderful Indonesia’ website and we hope that our festival will help bolster tourism to the Island of the Gods once again.
In the rare and unfortunate situation that ash again disrupts service at the airport, we want to assure attendees of SAGA Music Festival that the show must go on and there is no threat to the safety of festivalgoers."
