This year, the Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival – Java Jazz to its fans – turns 10! The celebration of the 10th edition of one of the world’s largest jazz festivals is one of Indonesia’s highlights of the year. The event will bring some of the very best international acts to Jakarta for a three-day stretch of explosive live music. After Java Jazz, some of the festival’s headliners, including Incognito, the iconic band Earth Wind & Fire, Brazilian singer Tania Maria and Swedish jazzman Magnus Lindgren will head to Bali for a second jazz happening: the Bali Live Festival. The event, which takes place from March 3rd through 8th, will see them perform in different venues on the island of Bali.

For Indonesian jazz fans and for all those visiting the country during the next few days, it’s going to be a very busy but fun time. The Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival, or Java Jazz as its often referred to, will celebrate its 10th anniversary. For three days, from February 28th to March 2nd, Jakarta will welcome some of the most talented artists the local and international music scenes have to offer. The festival, which is considered one of the largest jazz events in the world, has been an important stage for rising stars, as well as big names who have toured Indonesia. James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan and Sergio Méndes are just some of the prominent artists who have stopped by the festival in the past. The programme for the 10th edition of the Java Jazz Fest includes British acid jazz icons Incognito, American legends Earth, Wind & Fire, Jamie Cullum and Natalie Cole, among others. After the Java Jazz Fest will say goodbye to its audience, some of the festival headliners will head to Bali for a second jazz gathering: the Bali Live Festival.

Bali, an island that’s all about jazz

The fabulous island of Bali is a very popular travel destination that welcomes tourists from all corners of the world. For jazz cats visiting the island, Bali has a hidden gem that, in addition to the sea, temples and magnificent landscapes, will make your stay even more pleasant. The Jazz Café Ubud, opened in 1996, is the island’s first live jazz venue and presents hot live music every single night. The hard-working club has been selected, alongside other venues, as one of the locations for the Bali Live Festival. From March 3rd to 8th, the island of Bali will be “invaded” by some prominent international artists who have performed at the Java Jazz Fest just a few days before. The lineup includes Earth, Wind & Fire, Incognito, Brazilian singer Tania Maria and  Swedish jazzman Magnus Lindgren.
