Indonesia’s Now Playing Festival has added Dashboard Confessional, Boys Like Girls and Secondhand Serenade to its lineup. (See the full list below).

The second phase of the festival’s lineup was gradually unveiled starting Wednesday (January 25), with the three aforementioned American acts being announced alongside other Indonesian artists such as Noah, Samsons, Tipe-X, Lyodra and more.



Other artists on the updated bill include Dikta Wicaksono, Teamlo, Inul Daratista, and Last Child.

The musicians will be joining the likes of previously announced headliners Pamungkas, Tiara Andini, Sal Priadi, and more, for the six-day mammoth event in Bandung this March.

In January, the organisers announced the first phase lineup of the festival, which also included acts such as David Bayu, Fiersa Besari, HIVI!, Juicy Lucy, Kunto Aji, The Changcuters, and Feel Koplo.


The festival is scheduled to be held across two weekends on March 3, 4 and 5, as well as March 10, 11 and 12, at an undisclosed location. However, the organisers have yet to disclose the venue for the event.

Regardless, tickets have already been made available for online purchase via ticketapasaja, with prices ranging from IDR200,000 to IDR1,000,000. The oganisers noted, however, that the early bird Daily Weekend Passes for weeks one and two of the event have been sold out.

The Now Playing Festival also marks Dashboard Confessional’s return to Indonesia after making an appearance in Jakarta’s GudFest in November last year. Prior to their showcase in Bandung, the emo veterans are slated to headline the Philippines’ Wanderland Festival between March 4 and 5.

Last year’s edition of the Now Playing Festival was held in June and saw headliners Dewa 19, Danilla Riyadi, The Panturas, Gangga, Kunto Aji, among others taking the stage.
