All the details you need for the Prambanan Jazz Festival 2017 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia

The Prambanan Jazz International Music Festival is an annual music festival held in the courtyard of Prambanan Temple in Yogyakarta. We can’t imagine a better combination than the beauty of one of Indonesia’s cultural masterpieces, Candi Prambanan and local and global music masterpieces.

This is not the first time Yogyakarta has hosted international-class musicians. The cultural city has hosted Secondhand Serenade in 2012 and Dave Koz at Economic Jazz in 2015. This time we hear the music festival will again feature some of the finest and renowned musicians across the country and world wide.
For starters, Westlife’s Shane Filan, one of the pop heroes in the 90s, will bring his band’s greatest hits and his new solo album to Candi Prambanan. The phenomenal band Shakatak will also be performing this year. Not to mention, the Grammy Award Winning Singer/Songwriter Sarah Brightman will be the highlight; her performance at the festival will be accompanied by a live orchestra.
Held from 18-20th August 2017, with an Art, Music & Culture theme, Prambanan Jazz International Music Festival will be bringing back the 90s glory. In addition to the international 90s heroes, Prambanan Jazz Festival will also feature some of the most prominent names in the local music scene.
