There are many things to do in Jakarta, but there are 2 special events this October that I am curious to check out :
1. Soulnation Festival
Soulnation presents performances by Indonesian and international artists in the R & B, Hip hop, Rap and Soul scene.
It will be held on 17-18 October 2008 and is the festival's first year. It is organized by the same people of the Java Jazz festival.
The main artists scheduled to perform are Akon & Ashanti ... hmm.....intrigued?
Check out its website for more info : http://www.soulnationfestival.com/
The website states that besides performances, there will also be fun attractions & activities such as fire dancers, body painting, temporary tattoo and fortune telling!
Europe On Screen is, as its name suggests, a film festival featuring European films. This festival has been held annually since 2003.
This year it will take place in nine cities across Indonesia. In Jakarta, the event will be held from 24-31 October 2008.
