The Spirit Team is proud to broadcast our brand new BaliSpirit Festival Overview video!

As the BaliSpirit event celebrates its sixth year of existence, news of its magic has reached around the world. Not only does the Festival bring together celebrated musicians, yogis and dancers from every continent, but it has also become a magnet for fans, students and followers of every calling. Weeks before the Festival, Ubud begins to fill with a colorful international tribe of young people gathering in anticipation of one of the world's most inspiring events. Ticket sales have doubled annually as the buzz spreads via the media and individuals.

The first Festival in 2008 was pulled together in just three months—an incredible achievement in terms of organization, networking and coordination. It was a dream come true for the founders, who had created a vision of a Festival that would both build and support community within the context of global music, the full spectrum of yoga and international dance.

Set in the spectacular grounds of the Purnati Center for the Arts in Batuan, just 10 minutes south of Ubud, the daytime workshops and Dharma Fair enjoy a venue unmatched for its tropical beauty and gentle energy. The global music concerts take place in Ubud, at the Agung Rai Museum of Art's outdoor stage, to allow easy access for visitors and locals. This unique series of concerts features and knits together the distinctive traditional rhythms of Africa, Indonesia and Australia with the contemporary music of the rest of the world.

First-time Festivals are seldom profitable, and for the first three years the BaliSpirit Festival lost money spectacularly. Despite this, the founders honoured their commitment to community support by donating $17,000 in 2008 to the Bumi Sehat safe birthing clinic, and $17,000 in 2009 to the Pelangi Community School (Yayasan Cehaya Pelangi). In 2010 the Festival founders launcher an HIV/AIDS Awareness program to alert families to the prevalence of this rapidly spreading disease. Also in 2010, sponsorship was introduced to support the Festival for the first time.

The BaliSpirit Festival is indeed a celebration—of the richness of culture, the sanctity of the environment and harmony between people of all nations. Celebrate with us, and in doing so make the world a better place!
