Massive producer Diplo was confirmed as the Island Life Bali headliner last month and he alone is enough could get people excited. But just what is Island Life Bali? Here’s what we know about the newcomer by-the-beach bash so far.

Island Life is a series of outdoor music celebrations created by Love in Tents. and AWR Group. The creative undertaking will take place at various beach destinations around the world, kicking off with the first instalment on Canggu Beach (venue TBA), Bali, Indonesia on January 3, 2017.

Blending the hip music scene of Los Angeles and the remarkable charm of the islands, Island Life promises to take festival and tropical island cultures to the next level. The lineup will showcase “music’s best kept secret”.

This is why Diplo, the man behind Jack Ü summer anthems, is making a return to Indonesia to bring a shade of Californian sunshine to the party.
