Last weekend, I had a chance to see a music festival called Java Soulnation at Istora Senayan, Jakarta. Some local and international bands and musicians performed in the three-day-festival that is dedicated to the rhymes, beats and tunes of soul, hip hop, R&B and rap, divided into five different stages in the festival area. To be honest, I had no intention to go to this event before because I am a bit tight on funds lately. But, I suddenly changed my mind right after I knew that one of my favourite bands was going to be in this festival. Yes, they are Theme Park who instantly made me forget about my plan to save my money and then impulsively bought the ticket online. Other than Theme Park, there were lots of great performers such as James Morrison, Scissor Sisters, Robin Thicke, Jay Sean, Hercules and Love Affair, Valerius, TEED and so on. Unfortunately, the headliners of this festival—James Morrison, Scissor Sisters and Robin Thicke—were on the special stages, where a special ticket was needed to be able to see them there. For further information about this festival, you can check Java Soulnation’s official site here.
I will write about Theme Park’s gig on the next blog entry. Meanwhile, please enjoy the pictures I took at the festival.
