Joyland Festival Bali 2024 Offers a Tapestry of Sounds

From James Blake to Local Gems


The Joyland Festival Bali 2024, set to unfold at the picturesque Peninsula Island in Nusa Dua from March 1 to 3, 2024, is a testament to the evolving landscape of music festivals. With Plainsong Live at the helm and James Blake announced as the headliner, the festival promises an eclectic mix that transcends traditional genre boundaries. Blake, known for his soul-stirring melodies and innovative production, brings a depth to the lineup that is both rare and exhilarating. His latest album, “Playing Robots into Heaven,” not only garnered a Grammy nomination but also symbolizes the forward-thinking essence of Joyland Festival.


But Joyland is more than its headliner. The festival’s lineup is a carefully curated mosaic of sounds and stories. Kings of Convenience, Todd Terje, Gilles Peterson, and others bring unique flavors, creating a rich tapestry of musical experiences. Including acts like Shintaro Sakamoto, The Walters, Whitney, Vansire, and Pearl & The Oysters further underscores the festival’s commitment to diversity and discovery.


What sets Joyland apart is its dedication to showcasing emerging talent, particularly from Bali and across Asia. The Lily Pad Stage, with its assortment of electronic music talent selected by guest curators like Kasimyn and Wok the Rock, highlights the vibrant Balinese contemporary and experimental music scene. Acts such as Gangsar and Graung share the stage with Pan-Asian talents like LnHD and Mong Tong, offering festival-goers a glimpse into the future of music.


The festival’s embrace of Indonesian acts like Ali, BANK, and Isyana Sarasvati adds another layer of local flavor, bridging the gap between international acclaim and homegrown talent. This blend of familiar and new, regional and global, creates a unique space where music lovers can explore, discover, and connect.




Joyland Festival Bali 2024 is a series of performances and a cultural phenomenon that reflects the changing dynamics of music consumption and appreciation. In an era where digital platforms dominate, Joyland offers a tangible, immersive experience that celebrates the universal language of music in all its forms. It’s a reminder that in a world often divided by differences, music can bring us together, inspire joy, and foster understanding.


As details about programs, pre-events, merchandise, and tickets continue to unfold, one thing is clear: Joyland Festival Bali is a one-of-a-kind event to attend; it’s an experience to be part of. It’s an invitation to explore the depths of music’s potential to unite and uplift.
