Any inputs on Bali arts festival? We will be there around that time. Anything interesting? We would like to watch some traditional dances and music
I definitely recommend attending some of the Bali Arts Festival program if you're there at the time. The opening parade, which I think is on the 9th, is a great spectacle. I have not been able to find a program yet as they release it closer to the event so keep a look out. There were very few tourists there when I went in 2007. I'm looking forward to seeing more this year.
Namasaya Chris, thanks for the info. Where would I find more info about the festival? Pl share if you find any details. :)
I strongly recommend a visit to the Bali Arts Festival.
Of course don't miss the opening Parade on june 6.
You can seen all kind of traditional groups from all over Bali (and even Japan,etc) dancing , singing and maing traditional music.
During the rest of the month you can visit some dance performings in Denpasar.
Look for the program on www.baliartsfestival.com.
Have fun and see you there !!
I had heard that the opening parade is on the 9th. The program still has not been released. I leave for Bali on Saturday and am planning to attend the opening. I hope the program comes out soon.
The Bali Arts Festival is being held from June 11th - July 7th, 2012. Opening ceremony will be on the 11th in the afternoon starting at The Monument of the People's Struggle at Renon.
The program is not out yet.
We will be in Bali 7-12 June and from what I understand the Opening Parade wil be on 11 June. This comes from the Bali Discovery Tours
web site as of 5/30/2012. If anyone has any newer information would certainly appreciate seeing it.
When would the entire schedule be available?
I went maybe 10 different days and was able to capture some really nice photos of dances you wont see any where else..Edited: 1:35 am, February 17, 2013
