ABOUT BALI SPIRIT FESTIVAL The Bali Spirit Festival – 10 years of magic!
As the Bali Spirit Festival celebrates its ninth year, news of this gathering of world-renowned musicians, yogis and dancers from every continent has spread across the globe. The Bali Spirit Festival has become a magnet for fans, students and followers of every yoga, movement, healing and music calling. Weeks before the Festival, Ubud begins to fill with a colorful, international tribe of conscious travelers, gathering in anticipation of one of the world’s most inspiring events. The first Festival in 2008 was pulled together in just three months—an incredible achievement for the Festival’s founders, as well as a dream come true: They shared a vision to create a Festival that would both build and support community through the full spectrum of yoga and a rich diversity of world music and dance.
In 2008, Bali’s tourism industry had not yet recovered from the devastating social and economic impacts of the 2002 and 2005 bombings. Building upon their love for the island and creative passion for yoga, dance, and music, the founders pooled their resources to develop an economically and environmentally sustainable annual event that would become a beacon for the burgeoning market of holistic travelers and attract domestic and foreign visitors back to the hills of Ubud. In 2012, the festival attracted 6,000 guests during its five days of festivities, including visitors from 50 countries and 1,000 Balinese and Indonesians.
