We The Fest marked their 100 day countdown by dropping the second phase of their diverse 2019 lineup. Before the announcement, a hint (see below) was posted to their social media pages, inviting fans to guess which international acts will appear on the roster. See anyone you recognise?
Newly added to the bill is Australian pop sensation Troye Sivan, who recently collaborated with Lauv to release the hit "I'm so tired...". He takes up one of the headlining spots alongside Rae Sremmurd, with the final one still remaining a mystery. Joining them are an array of international and local acts, such as Anne-Marie, Joji, Cashmere Cat, Jai Wolf and Barasuara, just to name a few. They add to an already impressive list of artists from across an assortment of genres, featuring the likes of 6LACK, Cigarettes After Sex, Daniel Caesar and so on. See below for the line-up so far, and stick around for more acts to be announced shortly.

We The Fest prides itself on being South Asia’s #1 festival not just for music, but also fashion, food and the arts, which is why they have created a ‘Beyond the Music’ zone. As is expected, there’s a whole host of entertainment options for ticket holders to explore, including the Art Village, Carnifun games area, food court Eats and Beats, WTF Cinema Club and WTF Con.
In other news, the festival recently disclosed that they are relaunching their local talent sourcing program, Submit Your Music. This event is advertised as a gateway for aspiring Indonesian musicians, giving them the opportunity to perform at We The Fest provided they have at least 5 original songs under their belt. Other prizes are also up for grabs, including the chance to record at creative media school SAE Institute Jakarta.
We The Fest will take place at Jakarta International Expo from 19-21 July, Tickets are available through FestGround here.
