Bali's Garuda Wisnu Kencana Monument Park is set as the venue for the World Music Festival Bali 2002.
The organizers hoping to make the island of Bali a home to the musical traditions of the world will invite world musicians together with leading musical groups from across Indonesia to participate in the four day event. Among the Indonesian musicians slate to appear are: Balawan; Ethnic Fusion; I Wayan Sadra and Sono Seni Ensemble; Sawung Jabo with Genggong; Sujiwo Tejo; and Irwansyah Harahap.
Organizers report that 50% of an overall budget of the Rp, 1,38 billion (approximately US$ 155,000) required for the event is in hand.
Depending on the public response to the event and funding sources, the founders of the event hope to make the World Music Festival Bali a permanent part of Bali's annual event's calendar.
