PHOTOS COURTESY OF ULTRA BEACH BALI 2016SUPERSTAR DJS AND VIVACIOUS FESTIVALGOERS MAKE A CASE FOR A BORDERLESS WORLD UNITED BY MUSICIt was barely 7 p.m. in the evening and the fading glow of the sunset was still illuminating the farthest part of Seminyak Beach in Bali, yet thousands of people, Westerners and Indonesians alike, had already crowded into the open arena of Potato Head Beach Club, jumping and dancing to the buoyant set of tropical house tunes crafted by Australian DJ Thomas Jack.

The theatrical performance of music, lighting and atmospheric and flame effects working in unison left spectators with no choice but to enjoy themselves.

It was a strong start for the two-day Ultra Beach Bali electronic music festival, which ran from Sept. 15 to 16. The premier annual international music festival is being held in more than 20 cities across the globe throughout 2016.
