Update (Dec 20): The organisers addressed concerns over Mount Agung’s volcanic activity, stating it poses no threat to the upcoming festival and the surrounding area.
The statement reads, “With respect to the volcanic activities surrounding Mount Agung, for the time being the activity has decreased and the airport is operating normally with flight service fully restored. While it is impossible to predict how the volcano will behave in the coming weeks and months, SAGA Festival would like to remind the public to heed news with caution and be wary of sensationalized reporting. As of writing, it’s business as usual outside of the exclusion zone, which is limited to a 7.5km radius surrounding Mount Agung. SAGA Festival, which is located at GWK Culture Park, is 78km away from Mount Agung and Bali’s main tourist hubs of Kuta and Seminyak are more than 65 kilometers away from the exclusion zone with the airport also almost 70 kilometers away. In addition, Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism have given us their support on the official ‘Wonderful Indonesia’ website and we hope that our festival will help bolster tourism to the Island of the Gods once again. In the rare and unfortunate situation that ash again disrupts service at the airport, we want to assure attendees of SAGA Music Festival that the show must go on and there is no threat to the safety of festivalgoers.”
