Karangasem World Music Festival 2019

If you’re up for some cultural festivities this coming weekend, head over to East Bali where Karangasem regency is set to host a number of music and artistic performances, as well as a royal ritual at Puri Agung Karangasem. 

Karangasem World Music Festival 2019 will take place from October 11-13 with most of the day program taking place at the Samsara Bali museum, followed by evening programs at the regency’s Puri Agung in Amlapura. The event features music performances from a number of artists, including Karangasem Indie Movement, Bhakti Fusion and Tropical Transit. 

Friday, Oct 11 – Sunday, Oct 13 at Samsara Bali and Puri Agung in Karangasem regency. Free entry, more details and schedule can be found at the event’s Facebook page



TEDxUbud is coming back for its eight edition this coming Saturday, with “movement” as its central theme this time around. It seems bound to be quite an interesting journey of storytelling, learning and change, among many other things – where topics vary from forced migration, impact of travel, to the motion of the earth under our feet. 

You can check out their full list of speakers and performers here. The event has actually sold out, but it seems you can still sign up for their waiting list and who knows? You might get lucky. 

Saturday, Oct 12 at Setia Darma House of Masks and Puppets from 3pm onwards. Standard tickets, for which you can join a waitlist, are priced at US$95 (IDR1.3million), excluding fees. 


Reverse Aperitivo at The Slow

The Dolphin and Scout from Sydney are taking over the full venue at The Slow this Saturday, promising a blend of Italian-inspired menu of aperitivo bites from The Dolphin and specialty drinks dreamt up by Scout Sydney. For this event, expect a twist on the traditional aperitivo. 

An Afternoon in Sydney is set to start at 7pm, but the night continues on from 9pm ‘till late with an after party led by sounds of Sydney DJ Kali (Picnic). Prepare yourselves for a night of good food, drinks and music in Canggu. 

Saturday, Oct 12 at The Slow from 7pm onwards. Book a table here
