New to the Bali scene in 2018, Gypsylands is an art and music festival..... if you really had to put a title to it. But it's so much more than that. Birthed from Aussie Instagram personality, Kai Suteja aka @urmumsyadad , describes it as:
“...a festival where good verses evil. It’s an immersive, interactive environment; it’s more than music. We’ve got a half pipe where you can break your bones. There’s a thunder dome people can fight in. There’s a bit where you can get tattoos and piercings. There’s a fetish room. This is all in ‘The Bandlands’, the naughty side. Then there’s ‘The Wonderlands’, and that’s glitter, butterflies, kombucha. There’s a disco chapel and in order to enter, you need to kiss someone. There’s a maze that connects the two areas, and you need to traverse it to get between.”
It's a music and arts festival akin to the Aussie bush doof scene. It’s a one night thrill full of contemporary electronic music, vegan treats, rope swings, magic creature- like costumes, flower child decor and all things puppies and rainbows with a dark side. Yes, an actually dark side called The Badlands where you'd expect mischief and mayhem to creep out of the corner including things like flash tattoos & piercings, half pipes, fire dancing, boxing ring, an alien like dance arena built in trees among others.
It’s a completely interactive and immersive environment where festival goers can let go of any inhibitions and express the true disco dancing unicorn or BDSM kitty cat that you are..
