Conceived and created 27 years ago by Bali's cultural visionary, then-Governor Ida Bagus Mantra, the Bali Arts Festival has grown to become a staple on the Island's cultural calendar.
Night after night from June 18 through July 25, 2005, Bali's best gamelan orchestras, dance and drama groups, and others will take to the stage at various performance venues around Denpasar. And, as in past years, foreign performers are also slated to appear with groups from the U.S.A. and Thailand registered to participate in this year's event.
Not to be missed if you are in Bali on that date is the grand opening parade through downtown Denpasar on Saturday, June 18, 2005.
Bali's leading travel i-portal, Bali Pardise on-line, maintains a website exclusively dedicated to the Festival containing the background, history and complete performance schedule for the current Bali Arts Festival.
No Visit to Bali between June 18 and July 25, 2005 can be considered complete without including at least one night of festival performances.
