Why party up, up in here (as in Singapore, and once DMX rapped in a song) when you can down in there (as in Jakarta, Indonesia)?
Considering the factors, they are leading us in the rightful direction as well. Travelling time from any densely populated residential areas on the outskirts of the island we call home to a main partying event – usually held at the central or city area of town – will roughly and easily absorb up an hour or more of our quality time by public transportation, and the smart aleck souls in us travelling by taxis will still not be able to foresee the reality of traffic situations on the roads.
Costs aside, and besides budget airlines are the new ways to go, Jakarta is easily a two-hour flight journey away – isn’t it quite the irony that we are sometimes so close yet so far? In addition, have we not mention the delight in the travel bug in us of being in a foreign place with no familiar faces around, together with aplenty opportunities of drunken greatness without running the risk of both having our photos taken and being tagged by social friends (because real friends will never do you any harm like this!) on social networks, or lagi worse, websites and publications?
In collaborative efforts with L.A. Ice and organized by Ismaya Live, the L.A. Ice Djakarta Warehouse Project – the largest dance music festival in Indonesia – returns with a bang for a sixth-year installment since its incarnation within the wall boundaries of a warehouse in 2008. One can easily say that it has been a long way and time coming, and we can hardly imagine the amount of hard work and effort that has been put in place for running the event smoothly not once, not twice, not thrice, but to mark an upcoming sixth time in a row this year.
Thankfully, the fans had not grown weary or lacklustre throughout the years of progress but instead to have grown steadfastly – 2012 boasted a voluminous audience capacity of over 23,000, with three massive stages, 23 local Indonesian acts and 13 international headliners.
And 2013 proves no slowing down either, with an impressive 30 Indonesian and 15 international acts, alongside two pre-event programmes of The DJ Hunt and The Road to DWP13 series aligned to build up the excitement leading to the actual eventful day itself. The highly anticipated line-up for this year includes, but not limited to the following: Alesso, Angger Dimas, Anton Wirjono, Breakbot, David Guetta, Flight Facilities, Lemaitre, Madeon, Martin Solveig, Solomun, W&W, Zedd and many, many more. It certainly promises to be a night not to forget. (The full line-up list is as below on the official poster)
So gear up on those party supplies and prepare to dance the young night away at the L.A. Ice Djakarta Warehouse Project 2013, happening on the 13th of December, beginning at 4pm onwards till the wee hours of the morning. Tickets can still be purchased online at www.djakartawarehouse.com and www.ismaya.com, or at offline ticket-boxes across various parts of Indonesia.
L.A. Ice Djakarta Warehouse Project 2013 is also sponsored by Chivas, MyPeople, Nu Green Tea, Telkomsel, Bali Hai, Sony, Bolt, Hemaviton Energy Drink, Channel V, Wakai, Monstore, and is supported by SoundRhythm.
