    SAGA Music Festival Makes Its Debut In Bali At End Of 2017


    Guest

    Bali has always been a place you think of for tropical vacations and winter getaways to escape the cold, but as major countries become saturated with music festivals and the wealthy look for something exclusive to do, exotic locations like Bali have taken up the mantle.

    SAGA Music Festival is the first locally owned, organized and executed multi-day and stage festival in Bali. Set to take place at the end of the year, December 28-29, SAGA promises more than just music; it will offer a 360 experience focused on entertainment, culture, art, and a “culinary bazaar.”

    And from all that we can tell about SAGA, this is just the first chapter in something much bigger. Promoters state that “the idea is bigger than just a party; it’s a moment carefully curated to foster friendships, celebrate life and explore imagination without limits – a moment that everyone will remember years from now.”

    The festival will take place at the monumental Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Culture Park in Bali, Indonesia. The site, which is just a 15-minute drive from the airport in the Badung Regency area and can accommodate up to 50,000 people, takes up 240-acres of parkland and is dotted with 25-meter high limestone carved cliffs with the park’s namesake statue, which is one of Bali’s most revered cultural icons, serving as a centerpiece.

    While SAGA is looking to establish itself as more than just a music festival, that doesn’t mean that the lineup has been over looked. World-class names will take the stage, including DJ Snake, FKJ, TWRK, and Chris Lake.

    Bali’s music scene has been recently elevated by the entrance of worldwide festival brands like Ultra Music Festival and Bestival, but what they have been missing is a local touch and that’s how SAGA Music Festival aims to differ on an island where gorgeous days and starlit nights create the ideal setting for a slice of festival paradise in Bali.

      2015 marked the 20-year milestone in Faithless’ illustrious career and to celebrate the band curated a special remix album, ‘Faithless 2.0’, calling on the great and the good of electronic music to remix their catalogue; Avicii, Tiësto, Flux Pavilion, Above & Beyond, Booka Shade, Claptone, High Contrast, Eric Prydz, Purple Disco Machine and Armin Van Buuren.  An artistic retrospective and testament to one of the most influential bands of a generation and as revered today as when their journey began two decades ago, 'Faithless 2.0’ was released in October and went straight in at No. 1.

      After the release of their newest track "Don't Stop Believin" and the press that Mash'd N Kutcher have received from the Frank Walker prank, our Brisbane writer, @GALLEON takes some time out with the boys.
       
      GALLEON: So thanks for taking the time to have a chat to us. Briefly tell us how Mash'd N Kutcher was born all those years ago.
       
      Mash’d N Kutcher: Watching two and a half men when Ashton joined the cast while simultaneously juggling making mashups on soundcloud and trying to come up with a name. All just fell together really!
       
      G: There is no denying you guys are known for hilariously trolling crowds. But...Frank? What made you guys expand Mr Walker's business dealings into Germany?
      MnK: Grew up listening to him on the radio in mum’s car so figured the rest of the world couldn’t miss out haha
       
      G: Tell us about some of the more notable reactions you have got from your pranks?
      MnK: Essentially just doing the unexpected! Anywhere we can have a little fun we seize the opportunity really
       
      G: You guys have had an on point formula of reworking classic tracks into a current and commercially successful sound. How do you guys choose the right classic to reinvent?
      MnK: We try and go for one hit wonders, this seems to keep everyone happy and avoids the risk of butchering songs that probably shouldn’t be touched. For example we wouldn’t touch songs from bands like linkin Park, green day, chilli peppers etc... people grew up and connected with these records at really important times of their lives and the risk of spoiling that is far too much to warrant messing with a classic in some cases!
       
      G: You have reworked the Journey classic 'Don't Stop Believein' into a 2018 bigroom stomper. How did this new mix come about and how did you choose the vocalist?
      MnK: Great description haha! We actually contacted our friend who is the lead singer of the potbelleez and asked him who he thought best for the job, without hesitation he recommend Addison and he’s nailed it. Couldn’t have asked for a better match!
       
      G: Gig wise, what's on the cards for Mash'd N Kutcher in the next 12 months or so?
      MnK: Beginning now to creep our way into the larger festivals and stages which is exciting! We’re now starting to play some of the bigger stages in EU and Asia etc so more of that!
       
      G: Which artists are on your radar ready to blow up in the next year?
      MnK: Ones to watch would be Jaysounds, Sÿde, Chris royal, Tyron Hapi!
       
       
      G: What would be your most notable gig or memory playing together?
      MnK: There’s been a few! Playing in our hometown of Brisbane is always a treat though, as our friends and family can actually get around it and come to a show!
       
      G: There's a fair bit of info about Mash'd N Kutcher already floating around, but tell us something people don't know about you guys.
      MnK: As playing a show usually follows dinner, one of us will usually burp on stage mid show which will involve the other having to smell it, sometimes causing a full blown argument on stage masked by smiles in front of the crowd who are none the wiser.
