A BRAND-NEW REVOLUTIONARY MUSIC FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE TAKES OVER JAKARTA
Indonesia’s first fashion-forward establishment from MNC Group, The F Thing, has announced a stellar collaboration with The Livescape Group to present the debut of FUTUREPUBLIC music festival, which will take place at the renowned Allianz Ecopark Ancol in Jakarta, Indonesia on Saturday, 23 February 2019.
Being the first fashion/lifestyle e-commerce and digital media platform, The F Thing aims to be the go-to bridge of creating not just trend, but also a culture, a hub to combine local and global fashion brands in one web. Backed with Southeast Asia’s largest and most integrated media group, MNC, The F Thing consistently delivers trends for today’s generation, through a heap choices of local and international brands and through fashion tips from distinguished individuals via its e-magazine, Letter F. But being a trendsetter, The F Thing notices that it requires a bang: FUTUREPUBLIC. The first annual music festival to bring a new experience to music, fashion, and lifestyle enthusiasts in Indonesia, in partnership with Livescape Group, one of the biggest event agencies in Southeast Asia that is no stranger to curating experiential events.
The brand’s vision isn’t just limited to highlighting the advancement of fashion through creative visuals, editorial pieces and news. With O2O (online to offline) as its core, The F Thing has immersed itself in creating various activations and events that bridge the gap between fashion and lifestyle.
“Music festivals are a big part of today’s youth’s lifestyle. FUTUREPUBLIC will be a uniquely different music festival, blending in music, fashion, and other element of lifestyle. We believe in the radical. The radically positive new generations that will bring about change and innovation,” said The F Thing’s CEO and founder, Valencia Tanoesoedibjo.
Aligning with the same vision as Valencia’s, Managing director of The Livescape Group’s Indonesian division, Yudha Budhisurya also expressed, “The F Thing has entrusted us with their concept and creative freedom to redefine what this festival experience should be and we cannot wait for everyone to experience it come Feb 23rd.”
FUTUREPUBLIC was conceived to bring forth a brand-new festival concept that has never been done before in Indonesia. The festival will see the organisers transform the Allianz Ecopark Ancol into an immersive world of art, creativity, technology and imagination with its visionary landscape that falls in line with The F Thing’s core principals.
The luscious venue will transport festival-goers into a futuristic world that features two mind-blowing stages, the F-Stage and the House Party. These two platforms will host an array of world-renowned hip-hop, soul, electronica and pop artists.
FUTUREPUBLIC has already dropped its first phase line-up which sees them bringing down Grammy Award nominee, Mura Masa and Los Angeles based DJ and producer, TOKiMONSTA as headliners with more highly sought-after international acts to follow.
Mura Masa is best known for his track “Lovesick”, which reached number 1 on the Spotify Viral charts in the United Kingdom and the United States. He also produced and co-wrote “First Things First” on Stormzy’s Gang Signs & Prayer. His debut album Mura Masa was nominated for two Grammy Awards, including Best Electronic Album and Best Recording Package.
TOKiMONSTA has spent more than 10 years making music at the highest level. With a résumé that includes releases on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label and collaborations with names like Anderson Paak, eclectic and atmospheric beats propelled her own star to world-class festivals.
Supporting them at FUTUREPUBLIC are Indonesia’s most celebrated local heroes like A. Nayaka, Bastian Steel, Dipha Barus, Inside Out Choir, Kallula, Matter Mos, Monica Karina and Tuan Tigabelas.
With Allianz Ecopark Ancol creating the perfect backdrop to the music, the festival will also feature state-of-the-art installations and lighting effects throughout the venue. Festival punters will get to roam free and journey to the deep ends of the magical neon forest and the vibrant neon house.
In addition, the festival will also be serving a plethora of food and beverage selections across the festival grounds for guests to keep their momentum at a high. Festival punters can also take a break from the music and explore the cleverly converted shopping area located at the festival grounds — a familiar concept often organized by The F Thing through its various offline activations, and as such it distinguishes the festival from the rest.
FUTUREPUBLIC is set to revolutionise the festival scene and teleport fans into a futuristic utopia of musical supremacy with its ultimately fresh concept whilst setting the tone on what’s to be an innovative festival experience unlike any other.
