7th Music Gallery Invite HONNE as The International Guest Star and Held Fun Pre-Event Showcase
Music Gallery is an annual international indie music festival held by BSO Band from Economic and Business Faculty of University of Indonesia. This year marks the 7th installment of the celebration and it will be held on Saturday, 11 March 2017 at Kuningan City Ballroom, Jakarta. During a press conference and a pre-event held on 25th February 2017, the committee explained about this year’s main theme and line-up. They stated that “Urban” is the theme for the 7th edition of Music Gallery because it represents the harmony between differences in music, art, and festival. Different from music festival that is usually held in an outdoor area, Music Gallery targets an exclusive and prestigious venue for these indie musicians to showcase their crafts. So an indoor area like Kuningan City Ballroom located inside of Kuningan City Mall was chosen as the venue of the event.
Throughout the year, the festival has evolved into an international scale event in which they have invited several acts in the previous editions like Tahiti 80, Panama, and Last Dinosaurs. This year, HONNE have been appointed as the international guest stare. HONNE are known as a soul/electronic musician whose music has been widely loved by Indonesian youth, so their coming to Indonesia was met with such enthusiastic response resulting in the running out of tickets. They will share the stage with local musicians like Seringai, Bedchamber, Polka Wars, The Trees & The Wild, Bin Idris, Goodnight Electric, Ikkubaru, Ballads of The Cliché, Peonies, Hollywood Nobody, Stars and Rabbit, and many more.
Previously, on the same date as the press conference, 7th Music Gallery also held a pre-event for free where they invited some indie musicians on stage. There were Soft Blood, Tiga Segara, Loner Lunar, Makmur Sejahtera, and Ballads of The Cliché. Members of Ballads of The Cliché also voiced out their excitement to be on the main line up of the main event. There were free tickets given away during the event for those who could not obtain them. The 7th Music Gallery will be an indie haven for the artists and the enthusiasts. See you next week!
