Returning this coming 16 - 17 August, The Ubud Village Jazz Festival (UVJF) will once again be held at the ARMA Museum garden, bringing another host of exciting musical legends to Ubud.
Celebrating the huge range of styles and sub-genres that Jazz music and the art of improvisation encompasses, this 2019 will carry the theme “Certainly Indonesia!”, which aligns with the 74th celebration of Indonesia’s Independence Day, to promote the spirit of optimism for a better Indonesia ahead. Involving more than eight countries, the UVJF 2019 will feature an eclectic array of performers across varying styles and generations from jazz legends, new artists to the scene, and those at the height of their careers—once again creating a one-of-a-kind stage not seen anywhere else. With musicians from Indonesia, Germany, Russia, The Netherlands, Poland, Australia, Austria, France, South Korea, UVJF has grown to become one of Bali’s most important cultural and community events, gaining a serious reputation across the globe and the jazz stratosphere.
UVJF has been an eco-friendly festival since its first edition in 2013, and this year it will be so more than ever. “Supporting the ban on single-use plastic at the heart of the city during this prominent festival is one of the many ways we give back to the community and take action to care for our environment,” AnomDarsana, co-founder of the festival, explained.
