Sven Väth returns to Bali after 20 years to headline Burning Beach

For electronic music lovers around the world, Bali is gearing up to be the ultimate hotspot for festival experiences, especially after last year’s debut of Indonesia’s biggest house and techno affair; Burning Beach Festival.

This year, the festival comes back to Bali for its second edition on December 22-23, set to be a two-day extravaganza at Canggu’s Mari Beach Club in Canggu.

Burning Beach is already creating waves of excitement by announcing a prime line-up of international headliners. On Friday, the stunning Deborah De Luca will set the stage on fire with her electrically charged, technically nuanced sound which has made her an anticipated act to catch in Bali since her last performance in 2014.

Then on Saturday, make sure not to miss the captivating live show of Stephan Bodzin, who commands an array of synths and music-making machines to play melodies live accompanied by mesmeric visuals — new ones, developed for his latest shows.

Also on Day 2 of festivities, legendary vinyl virtuoso Sven Väth steps foot on the Island of Gods for the first time in 20 years to close the festival in style, taking attendees on a hypnotic journey through the realms of electronic sound, blending timeless techno with an avant-garde edge.

More names on the immaculately curated line-up include Italy’s Ilario Alicante, Germany’s Matthias Tanzmann, and German-born, Jamaican-raised rising star Melanie Ribbe who will grace the event with their spellbinding sets.

“The identity of Burning Beach Festival is still taking shape, and it will undoubtedly continue to evolve. One thing, however, remains steadfast – our unwavering commitment to welcoming beloved DJs to Bali. These artists are cherished by both the Indonesian and international audiences residing in Bali and those who flock to the island for their Christmas holidays,” mentions festival co-founder Alicja Zakrzewska.
