Party season in Bali

Published by at 11:04 am under Events


If it’s August, it’s high season in Bali. Parties are cranking into gear and though for some that means running for the hills, for others it’s time to glam up and get out of the hotel.

Travelfish.org knows all the coolest party venues that nobody else has ever heard of.

Seminyak is party central with the main spots for grooving being sunset institution KuDeTa, old-hand Hu’u and audacious newcomers Potato Head and Cocoon. The season tends to be called “summer”, though in actual fact it’s winter in Bali — we’re in the southern hemisphere, folks.

Here’s the August calendar for some of the larger venues:

Thursday August 11 (postponed from yesterday due to a plane diversion): Ed Banger Party at Potato Head Beach Club. French electronic music label Ed Banger presents DJs Mehdi, Busy P and BreakBot.

Friday August 12: F Vodka Launch Party at Hu’u. Fashion TV presents the official F Vodka launch with a Casino Royale party.
AND
Wild Party at Cocoon, with DJ Mr V flying from the USA to spin the night away with entertainers.

Cocoon or Cocooo? Look again.

Saturday August 13:  Ku De Ta’s 11th birthday party. Japanese-inspired cuisine will be served before a backdrop of red lanterns, Zen fountains, kimono-clad entertainers and Sumo wrestlers. Dance music legend Todd “The God” Terry spins house music and Ku De Ta’s DonniOne and Supercozi will round out the musical offerings. A share of the proceeds going towards the survivors of Japan’s recent disasters.

Friday August 19: Summer Syndrome’s Strictly Costume Party at Potato Head Beach Club. Come in your most elaborate or simple costume — they don’t give any suggestion to a theme beyond that — to see Empire of the Sun perform at Potato Head’s main summer event.
AND
Hu’u's Red Party, celebrating Independence Day.
AND
Vegas Showtime at Cocoon, XPRESS @ is spinning the beats with Vegas showgirls on hand as well.

Saturday August 20: Ku De Ta’s Hello Sailor-themed White party. Indonesia’s 22-piece Pitelas Big Band will perform plus Djs Spen and Karizma.

Friday August 26: Hu’u's 24 karat Super Solid Gold party with DJ Golddigger.

It’s also worth checking out whether anything is on at Nammos during your Bali holiday — they have some great parties and often provide a shuttle service down to their beautiful beach on the Bukit. Their emails were bouncing in the leadup to writing this post.
