The October 2022 event will feature work from South Kalimantan native artist Rakhmat Jaka in an effort to spotlight the local culture and lifestyles of Indonesians, per a press release. The event will also bring back the festival’s green initiatives, which will include attendees bringing their own reusable bottles and more.
The October event will mark the festival’s first live event since October 2019, which saw performances from Kunto Aji, Pamungkas, Raisa, Barasuara, Reality Club, The SIGIT and more.
Synchronize Fest cancelled its 2020 edition in September, instead announcing a single-day virtual festival for November.
In 2021, Synchronize returned for another digital run, this time airing exclusively on radio. The event – dubbed Synchronize Fest di Radio – saw acts such as Senyawa, Nadin Amizah and Diskoria perform sets from across the country, which were broadcast to listeners at home over the airwaves.
Synchronize Fest is the latest Indonesian festival to announce an event this year. Other notable festivals taking place this year include We The Fest, Berdendang Bergoyang, JogjaROCKarta, PestaPora, Java Jazz and 88rising’s Head In The Clouds.
