2. Burning Beach Bali

Bali’s Burning Beach is the most essential underground music festival in the region, and this year’s line-up is the best yet with a mix of legends, live shows and rising stars.

The infectious vibes and a clear vision for the music concept ignited a desire for something grander, something that transcended those smaller gatherings – the vision for a festival was born.
