Bali has always been a place you think of for tropical vacations and winter getaways to escape the cold, but as major countries become saturated with music festivals and the wealthy look for something exclusive to do, exotic locations like Bali have taken up the mantle.

SAGA Music Festival is the first locally owned, organized and executed multi-day and stage festival in Bali. Set to take place at the end of the year, December 28-29, SAGA promises more than just music; it will offer a 360 experience focused on entertainment, culture, art, and a “culinary bazaar.”

And from all that we can tell about SAGA, this is just the first chapter in something much bigger. Promoters state that “the idea is bigger than just a party; it’s a moment carefully curated to foster friendships, celebrate life and explore imagination without limits – a moment that everyone will remember years from now.”

The festival will take place at the monumental Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Culture Park in Bali, Indonesia. The site, which is just a 15-minute drive from the airport in the Badung Regency area and can accommodate up to 50,000 people, takes up 240-acres of parkland and is dotted with 25-meter high limestone carved cliffs with the park’s namesake statue, which is one of Bali’s most revered cultural icons, serving as a centerpiece.

While SAGA is looking to establish itself as more than just a music festival, that doesn’t mean that the lineup has been over looked. World-class names will take the stage, including DJ Snake, FKJ, TWRK, and Chris Lake.

Bali’s music scene has been recently elevated by the entrance of worldwide festival brands like Ultra Music Festival and Bestival, but what they have been missing is a local touch and that’s how SAGA Music Festival aims to differ on an island where gorgeous days and starlit nights create the ideal setting for a slice of festival paradise in Bali.
