Phoenix to headline Joyland Bali 2023

Presale tickets are now available

Joyland Bali has announced Phoenix as the first headliners for its recently announced 2023 edition.

Phoenix were revealed as the first headliners for the festival today (November 22) in a social media announcement from the organisers. The French pop-rock band will perform at the festival set to take place on March 17, 18 and 19, though the exact location and the day that the band will be performing on has yet to be revealed.


The organisers have promised that the festival will take place in an open green space, and will feature comedy, film, workshops, and a marketplace for festival-goers to enjoy.

Those looking to secure their tickets before the rest of the lineup is announced can now purchase tickets via Loket as part of a limited presale. Tickets are priced at IDR388,000.

The 2022 edition of Joyland Bali featured a who’s who of Indonesian music, with Basboi, Danilla Riyadi, The SIGIT and Isyana Sarasvati among those who took the stage during the three-day event. Indonesian President Joko Widodo also made an unannounced appearance at the festival alongside his cabinet members to show approval for live music returning to Indonesia following the coronavirus pandemic.

Joyland Bali 2022 was also the first large-scale music event to be held following the easing of public health safety measures in Indonesia, and set a high bar for festivals that would be held throughout the year in the country. In a five-star review, NME wrote: “Will the Indonesian music festivals coming after Joyland be able to reach the same heights? They should bring their A-game.”

Joyland Bali returned to the island in 2019 following a successful run in Jakarta with events featuring the likes of Washed Out, Yves Tumor, Frankie Cosmos, Ardhito Pramono, NAIF, Hindia and more. Joyland called Jakarta home until going on hiatus after the 2013 edition of the festival.
