Djakarta Warehouse Project
on Thu 18 Mar 2010
DJAKARTA WAREHOUSE PROJECT is a collaborated dance music festival by Blowfish together with Indonesias leading event organizers/promoters. The event was created as a movement for peace, as a means to convey to the public that the nightlife industry is more positive than it has generally been perceived, that it actually is a service to provide the public with great music in a safe surroundings and fun atmosphere. It will take place at Pantai Carnaval Ancol on April 24, 2010 and will feature 8 International acts, various local DJs, VJs, and talents, and one-of-a-kind dramatic décor. We are building a music festival with an extraordinary ambience that will give the audience both the experience of a rave party but with all the convenience of a club. Facilities such as food stalls, full bars, toilets, and various fun games will be provided all night long at the venue. This event is fully supported by Dinas Pariwisata and also Asosiasi Hiburan Indonesia.
The background of this mission is the unfortunate coincidental incident that had taken place at Blowfish on April 4, 2010. Since the aftermath of the incident did not affect Blowfish alone but also Jakartas nightlife industry in general, we initiated a discussion with leading event organizers and promoters in Indonesia, resulting in an agreement to add a new mission to the previously Blowfish Warehouse Project. As the pioneers of Jakartas nightlife industry, we would like to use this opportunity to spread an important message: that we are fighting against violence and for our rights to peacefully enjoy music. We also intend to give donation to non-profit organization that supports a similar cause. Together, we are bringing this event forward, so that it wont be just another party but a statement instead from Jakartas nightlife industry. All participating event organizers contribute to this event by being spokespersons and helping us spread the message to a greater audience. With that, Blowfish Warehouse Project has evolved into a party with a mission, entitled Djakarta Warehouse Project: Peace. Dance. Unity- a warehouse dance music project for peace.
This event will be a monumental one in Jakarta dance scene calendar, the time when club music enthusiasts, partygoers, event organizers, and everyone who care gather to support the movement to make a statement against unnecessary violence and to celebrate togetherness and excellent music in a safe and fun environment.
