Green, Water and Life at Jatiluhur Jazz Festival

The 1st International Jatiluhur Jazz Festival 2019 will be held on the weekend of 30th November and 1st December starting at 15:00 WIB.

The festival was initiated by Jasa Tirta II, supported by SOEs and the Regional Government of West Java Province. It will feature music from different genres with a jazz touch performed by national and international musicians. It is hoped to boost domestic and foreign tourism through promoting cultural expression through music as well as building entertainment facilities for the local community.

President Director of Jasa Tirta II, U. Saefudin Noer, said that The 2019 International Jatiluhur Jazz Festival is part of Jasa Tirta II's flagship program to promote music tourism and raise awareness for the environment.

"It is unique and innovative to showcase Jatiluhur's potential. We support it because of its positive impacts," said Ferry Andrianto, the Head of Public Relations of the Ministry of BUMN.

The festival will be held in the Blue Harbor area, providing a natural atmosphere on the edge of the reservoir with an afternoon breeze and beautiful mountain views as well as the Jatiluhur Reservoir icon, the Morning Glory, in the evening.
