Electronic music festival the Djakarta Warehouse Project (DWP) is set to return for its 10th edition on Dec. 7 to 9.
However, unlike previous editions, the event returns under a new name, DWPX, and is slated to be held at Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) cultural park in Badung regency, Bali.
Kompas.com reported that the organizer, Ismaya Live, had always wanted to hold the event in other cities, explaining that DWP was a global brand and not limited to Jakarta.
Ismaya Live brand manager Sarah Deshita shared that she had been toying with the idea of holding the festival in Bali since last year.
“Since the development of GWK has been completed, I think this is the best time to hold DWP in Bali,” said Sarah.
