Soundrenaline 2019: A weekend of Indonesia’s flourishing music scene

Soundrenaline made its return to Bali from the 7th–8th of September at Garuda Wisnu Kenana (GWK) cultural park, with this year’s theme being “The Spirit of All Time”.

There seems to be a rapid evolution of Soundrenaline with each year passing and this being their 17th edition, they showcased 60 of Indonesia’s progressive and prominent musicians, varying in genres, through four stages – being the “A Stage”, “Celebration Stage”, “Creators Stage” and “All Time Stage”.

Each year, we’re amazed by the growth of the stage production, quality of talent, as well as the abundance of enthusiasm from Indonesia’s youthful and charismatic audiences. This year was promisingly more vibrant, from the overall festival experience to the one off, cross collaborations between musicians and visual artists.

This year’s international headliner was British 90’s alterative band “Suede”, setting off an electrifying, energy jammed set and later ended the Saturday night in a sweet nostalgic celebration with local band Reborn Padi.

What an incredible weekend of Indonesia’s crème de la crop of music! [Thearosa]
