There are destination weddings, and then there are destination concerts. Lets face it, they're not entirely dissimilar — both involve copious amounts of booze, wild abandon either the night before or during (not to mention one or two indiscretions), and a playlist of your favourite tunes with the best of mates. Which is why every year, Singaporeans flock to Asian music festivals such as Java Jazz in Indonesia, Fuji Rock in Japan and Wonderfruit in Thailand — they're close enough to take a couple of days off work, and their lineups usually rival that of the American or European counterparts.

This May sees an entrant to this Asian festival circuit. Founded by Jakarta's Love & Other Things and Malaysia's The Livescape Group, DGTL LVE is a new music and arts festival that's expected to attract over 5,000 people with the best vibes electronic music and art can bring. Their first foray into the Indonesian music scene, The Livescape Group are the guys who've brought you the likes of UB40, Kaskade, Afrojack and Yuna, as well as IT'S THE SHIP, billed as Asia's first party cruise.

Disclosure's the headlining act, supported by local Indonesian DJs Bima G and Dipha Barus. Upon the recent news that Disclosure brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence are expected to perform at Glastonbury 2016, we're stoked to see them live at this side of the globe — especially to perform tracks from their 2016 Grammy-nominated second album, Caracal.


DGTL LVE 2016 will take place at Eco Park Convention in Ancol, Jakarta on 4 May. Early bird tickets are priced at IDR420,000 ($43). Book at Galactix and Tiket.
