Apart from performances by local artists, international musicians will also join the country's year-end festivity to make the New Year’s Eve celebration even merrier.
Here are some of the foreign artists set to entertain Indonesians while saying farewell to 2016.
Australian singer and DJ Natalie “Nat” Conway will sing for Indonesian audiences at the Grand Ballroom in Hotel Mulia Senayan in Jakarta. The contestant of X-Factor Australia 2015 is known for her sultry voice. During the show, she is slated to perform 15 to 16 tracks, including her first single “Everybody’s Free [to Feel Good]”, which is also a cover from Rozalla’s 1991 dance song.
“We’ve rehearsed some brand new songs and new choreography – we have two amazing choreographers in Australia [who] planned the whole show for us,” said the singer during a press conference in Jakarta on Friday, adding that she will encourage the audience to sing and dance together. After the performance, Nat will join the countdown alongside the guests.
As for her upcoming project, Nat plans to release her new single in January. “It won't be as clubby as ‘Everybody’s Free’; it will be half ‘dancy’ and half pop,” she said.
