BaliSpirit Festival is one of South East Asia’s biggest annual yoga, dance and music festivals. The goal of the BaliSpirit Festival is to awaken and nourish each individual’s potential for positive change within, leading to a greater positive change in our homes, in our communities and around the world.
BaliSpirit Festival is a non profit event and operates 3 year-round outreach programmes:
- AYO! Kita Bicara HIV & AIDS (HIV & AIDS awareness and education programme for schools in Indonesia)
- Bali Conference (A music and arts education and community program) and
- Bali ReGreen (A bamboo reforestation program in impoverished areas in Bali)
The next BaliSpirit Festival will be the 11th edition and will take place in Ubud, Bali from 2 to 8 April 2018. There is a new format for 2018: 6 days of full programming including yoga, dance, meditation and breathwork workshops and 7 nights of night music concerts, all taking place at The Bali Purnati Center for the Arts in Ubud.

“As we move into our 11th year, we’re happy to announce that BaliSpirit Festival’s day-time and night-time events will finally be unified in the same venue! We aim to create a seamless experience with less travel between locations and more time to relax and enjoy the good vibes and great music” – Rob Weber, BaliSpirit Festival Musical Director and Co-Founder.
What makes BaliSpirit Festival unique is the diverse West meets East cultural fusion across the festival programming and venue. Attendees experience Balinese culture, spirituality and mesmerising nature, the perfect setting for attendees to evolve, connect to each other and be creatively inspired.

The feeling of community and practice of karma yoga and giving back is strongly felt at BaliSpirit Festival. Over USD $100,000 has been raised by BaliSpirit Festival for its annual outreach programs and partner charities which includes environmental conservation, multi-cultural and performing arts education, healthcare and HIV & AIDS awareness. The scenery and overall environment of Bali makes it a perfect destination for attendees to deepen their understanding and transform their yoga practice and way of living, whilst knowing their actions are making a difference in giving back to Bali and Balinese communities.
