Electronic music festival the Djakarta Warehouse Project (DWP), slated to return this year under a new name DWPX, has announced its latest line-up of musicians for the event that will take place in Bali from Dec. 7 to 9.
As reported by Antara news agency, United States DJ and record producer KSHMR is among the latest musicians announced in the third phase line up at the DWPX. KSHMR has reached the 12th spot in the annual top 100 DJs poll by DJ Mag in 2017 and has also collaborated with big names such as Tiesto, Hardwell and R3hab.
"The DWPX lineup is very special because it brings together musicians who have previously performed at the DWP with musicians who have never previously performed in Indonesia," Sarah Deshita, brand manager of organizer Ismaya Live, said in a statement, as quoted by Antara.
Additionally, musicians in the latest lineup include Claptone, the masked DJ from Germany, as well as Showtek, brother duo Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen from the Netherlands.
"Those we are bringing back this year have evolved since the last time they performed at the DWP, along with the development of the DWP. They are also popular names for music lovers throughout the DWP," Sarah said.
Musicians The Weeknd, Afrojack, Major Lazer, Porter Robinson and Armin van Buuren had earlier been announced to perform in the upcoming music event that is slated to be held at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park in Badung regency, Bali. (liz/mut)
