PIK-ture yourself bobbing your head to Rich Brian or getting swooned by NIKI while enjoying the warm coastline breeze, because Head in the Clouds music festival has officially announced that it will make its Indonesian debut in the swanky North Jakarta township.

American music label 88rising this morning dropped a tweet announcing that the Jakarta festival will be held at Community Park in PIK 2 on Saturday, Dec. 3 and Sunday, 4.

Tickets for two-day passes go on sale on Aug. 4 at 10am through the event’s official website or official ticketing partner Blibli. Payments for tickets purchased domestically must be made using BCA’s banking services.

Do note that tickets won’t be sold at the gate as all passes must be booked online.

No ticket prices or acts for Head in the Clouds Jakarta have been announced as of this article’s publication.

Head In The Clouds festival, dubbed the “Asian Coachella,” was supposed to debut in Jakarta in March 2020 at JIExpo Kemayoran, with headliners including US-based hometown heroes in rapper Rich Brian and R&B singer/songwriter NIKI. The event was canceled due to the pandemic.

The festival was slated to feature their label mates, including former internet personality-turned R&B and trip-hop Japanese singer Joji and I Love You 3000 singer Stephanie Poetri, as well as other up-and-coming international artists such as Thai singer-songwriter Phum Viphurit.

This year’s Head in the Clouds in Jakarta will mark the festival’s international debut since its inception in Los Angeles.

Sharing its name with a compilation album featuring 88rising stars, the inaugural Head in the Clouds festival was held in LA in 2018. A second festival followed in 2019, with the Jakarta festival in 2020 supposed to be the third edition. 88rising held another festival in LA in December 2021, with another date in the City of Angels confirmed for August 2022.
