When summer is here, you know which music festival you must visit in 2017. As the hippest multi-genre festivals held by IsmayaLive! We The Fest 2017 instantly boost you with the Coachella-ish vibe. Unlike its previous year, WTF2017 takes a bigger venue set in JIEXPO Kemayoran, Jakarta on August 11, 12 & 13, 2017. The first night bangs with an unforgettable stage act by Charlie XCX who hit the main stage with her pink playsuit and bedazzled bling sunglasses, dancing energetically swag. But the major highlight that happened at the event was when the crowds were hypnotized by the stage antics performance of Charlie XCX, suddenly from the VIP area we spotted our beloved President, Mr. Jokowi watching from a far.
Kodaline also made such a sweet performance bringing such a bittersweet ode of love songs, while The Kooks played on stage with a little bit of an urgency with their performance, as if they were being limited by the time, though they still rawked. On the second day, Phoenix successfully took the crowd by storm with their old hits and fresh songs taken from the new album, Ti Amo and to watch Thomas Mars at the encore singing and standing in the middle of the crowds is a blast!
The last day can be said as the most awaited night for all the youngsters and die hard fans of this Albanian-UK singer, Dua Lipa. Looking so cute that night in her brown oversized jumper and ankle heel boots, Dua Lipa sums up the night with such a warm performance singing “Blow Your Mind (Mwah),” “New Rules,” and all of her top hits. This year is the most successful event for We The Fest 2017 with 50,000 crowds packing this three day event that also fully packed with series of attractive and interesting booths and concept areas where people can chill out in the lounging beanies in front of “Another Stage”, including cinema club.
