Indonesia Weekend 2017 at Potters Fields Park
on 22 - 23 July
A vibrant, colourful festival celebrating the food, culture, fashion, music and tourism of Indonesia will take place over the weekend on 22 and 23 July 2017.
Created by 23-year-old King’s College student Ardito Widjono who moved to the UK in 1995, the festival is a celebration of his birth nation and last year attracted more than 30,000 visitors.
The event will take place at Potters Fields Park in Southwark and promises to be every bit as fascinating as last year’s festival which proved to be a huge success – and to promote Indonesia as a premium tourist destination, there will even be a beach created from 50 tonnes of white sand to get people in the mood!
Among this year’s headline acts performing live are YouTube sensation Alffy Rev, whose videos regularly hit more than 2 million views. Rev is a now a major Indonesian star, covering traditional songs and pop hits via his Launchpad synthesiser and will be deejaying live on the day.
Also on show will be the bamboo instrumental group Jei Angklung, performances of the Tari Topeng masked dance and Jaipongan, a traditional West Javanese dance. Martial arts guru and Star Wars and ‘The Raid’ actor/teacher Cecep Arif Rahman along with his students will perform an intricate and entertaining routine that proved so popular at the 2016 event.
Best Asian Chef of the Year and former Indonesian MasterChef star Chef Degan Septoadji will demonstrate an interactive Indonesian cookery masterclass on a journey through Indonesia’s culinary heritage during a delicious evening of tastes and aromas.
There will also be several Indonesian street food vendors and traditional eateries at the event.
Top Indonesian design brands Elzatta Dauky and Indonesian Fashion Chamber will be on hand with fashion shows and various pieces and clothes to purchase in their pop-up boutiques. Brilliant graffiti artists Bujungan Urban and Smoke will demonstrate their particularly vibrant areas of expertise while Kent, Indonesia's best henna tattoo artist, will be showing off his skils with ethnic designs.
Organiser Ardito Widjono commented: “The whole event is aimed at raising awareness of Indonesian culture, food, music and costume - something rarely celebrated on these shores even though the UK hosts Europe’s third largest Indonesian community.
“The Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam all enjoy a higher profile in the UK so Indonesian Weekend 2017 is just trying to balance the scales a little.
“There is something for everyone and all our performers, guests and musicians are flying in to London especially for this weekend. From great music to great food, it will leave all our visitors with a colourful and vivid impression of Indonesia that I hope will lead to some visiting what is a truly amazing country.” ...
