“As this is Hodgepodge Superfest’s 2nd year, we of the Java Festival Production are glad and happy that it’s back. “Hodgepodge” Superfest is, as its name implied, a hodgepodge, a mixture of diverse things. This is what we refer to when we created the concept of this festival and when we select our performing artists. This is obvious from our lineup: the American rock band The Used, the British indie pop band Superorganism, the dance/electronic Indonesian musician Jevin Julian, who will be collabo­rating with pop singer Petra Sihombing, and many more. Like in our first show, we will be holding the Hodgepodge Superfest at the Allianz Ecopark, Ancol, Jakarta. It’s surrounded by trees and covered in grass, creating a cool green ambience. We hope that visitors can enjoy the environment while watching our performance, enjoy delicious food and drinks in such an artistic festival area,” said Dewi Gontha, PT Java Festival Production’s President Director.
