What happens when you combine exotic arts with an exotic land? How about a truly memorable experience? Imagine, you’re in Bali basking in the sea, sand and sun on one of its renowned beaches. And just a short transfer away is a sea of life, vigor and color. In case you are wondering, this is the Bali Arts Festival, and it will be bursting into action from June 11th – July 9th 2011.

Sure it is nice to tour around the island and discover its many colorful traditions, foods temples and even art galleries. But time may be of the essence for some. This is where the festival can help. The event will bring together a number of arts and performances ranging from:

Traditional village dances
Classical palace dances
Contemporary modern dances
Traditional music performances
Fashion shows
Salivating food
Balinese offerings contests
Art exhibitions
And more

But this isn’t just any ordinary art event. The performances begin at the villages, where they are chosen at the regency level and vie with each other to perform at this event. Not only will you see authentic performances, you will also see the best of the best.

So, what is the history behind the event? As tourism started to boom in the 1960’s the people decided that visitors should experience the island’s culture and heritage as well. As the Balinese put it: “Tourism should be for Bali instead of Bali for tourism.” Never has a statement been truer about travel in the island.

In order to promote this, contests were being held in the village level, which excited the younger generations who felt their art and culture was being lost amidst all the modernization. So, along with this enthusiasm and pride of their heritage, the Bali Arts Festival was born.
