While vacation hot-spot Bali is off the cards for Aussie travellers, a world-first online entertainment concept is launching this year, allowing Aussies to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of the island.

AXN All-Stars is an exclusive digital showcase bringing together 19 artists from nine international locations simultaneously to perform. The virtual extravaganza will include some of the biggest names in entertainment, including world class illusionist, Cosentino, and Spice Girl, Mel C.

The virtual event, which will stream live for free on Saturday 28 November, is a tribute to front line workers, in partnership with Republic of Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy. It was curated to collectively lift spirits in the greatest celebration of hope.

Viewers will be transported into a tropical state of mind with a series of adrenaline pumping, heartwarming collaborative performances from a host of international singers, dancers and magicians, including French singer Anngun, Indonesian artist Afgan, acclaimed magician Cyril Takayama, Canadian musician David Foster and American singer/song writer Michael Bolton. Additionally, viewers will be treated to guest performances from some of Asia’s most promising up and coming talent, from Taiwanese hip-hop dance group, Maniac Family to Japanese comic duo, Yumbo Dump.

“Our current surroundings might be encircled with restrictions, but the desire to impact and reach communities with the power of entertainment remains intact. It is more pertinent now than ever, to leverage this and keep the spirit of togetherness alive. We want to bring communities together while cultivating a spirit of resilience and hope amid a bleak situation,” said Wishnutama Kusubandio, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Republic of Indonesia.

AXN All-Stars will stream live for free on Saturday 28 November at 11pm (AEDT) on AXN Asia’s YouTube and Facebook.
