Award-winning R&B singer The Weeknd will be making his way to Bali in the last bit of 2018, headlining the Djakarta Warehouse Project as a part of his first-ever Asia tour this December.
Despite the music festival’s name, the Djakarta Warehouse Project will actually be in Bali this year from December 7-9 at the island’s stunner of an outdoor venue (wait til you see those limestone cliffs), Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park in the cliffs of Jimbaran. Goody for us.

Also on the line-up in addition to the “Can’t Feel My Face” hit-maker will be DJ Snake, Major Lazer, and Porter Robinson, according to an announcement from event organizer Ismaya Live made this week.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, August 17.
After attending many a show at GWK—mainly Indonesian-centric events like Soundrenaline every year and an Iwan Fals-Noah concert—we can’t wait to get back to the park for another event, especially now that the massive statue is finally finished.
This year’s festival marks a break in tradition. Not only is it usually held in Jakarta (hence the name), but the dance party event will be extended from its usual two-day schedule to three days.
You are all invited to celebrate our one-decade journey with us, amongst legendary artists, a breathtaking venue and 3 days of uneXpected experiences.
