A festival dedicated to the rhythms and rhymes, beats and tunes of soul, hip-hop, R&B and rap, the Jakarta International Java Soulnation Festival, held on 28 and 29 September 2012, is a local shindig that aims to foster cross-cultural cooperation, allowing the young to enjoy world-quality entertainment all in the vicinity of one venue. To support the event, Billabong held a lucky draw at selected Billabong stores (Central Park and Kota Kasablanka) and in all Point Break stores throughout Jakarta, where lucky winners stood a chance to win two tickets to the event for themselves and a friend.
Furthering the support – all in the name of music – Billabong and JUICE Magazine were thrilled to work in collaboration taking up the MVRCK stage, where a great line up of live performances featuring the likes of Stereomantic, NICK, Sanjion&MC Raben & Optimuzt, Wizzow Batik Tribe, Arcade Playmate, Parisude and Midnight Runner bust out tunes the entire weekend to keep up with the merry-making. But besides moving to the beat of the great tunes, activities around the stage included a Billabong x VonZipper Photobooth, with complementary face painting and temporary tattoo services to help unleash your inner rock stars.
Nadia Anderson, Billabong’s Marketing Coordinator comments, “The crowd at this year’s shindig was great! And it’s really good to see people at the Billabong MVRCK stage moving and enjoying themselves. We can’t wait to see what’s installed next year!”
