DirectRooms.com are happy to announce the 7th annual Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival, now firmly ensconced in its new venue, Jakartaâ€™s International Expo Centre
Online PR News – 22-December-2010 – – This stunning jazz event is becoming known as one of the best in the world for its mix of seasoned and legendary performers and completely unknown but highly talented local bands. Running from 4 to 6 March at the cityâ€™s premier exhibition venue, and is expecting to draw jazz music-lovers from across the world. A sparkling line-up of local and international talent awaits festival-goers, and includes the much-loved Bob James, the Charlie Haden Quartet, Rhoda Scott, Juan de Marcos and his Afro-Cuban All-Stars and many others.
The festival is one of the largest in the world, with more than 200 acts, totalling over 1600 musicians performing every year to huge audiences of jazz fans. Over 70,000 people are expected to arrive in the city for the March event. The Java Jazz Festivalâ€™s motto is â€˜Bringing the World to Indonesiaâ€™ and the festival, with its plethora of international acts, does just that.
Itâ€™s a great chance for local jazz artistes to compare styles with others worldwide, and creates each year a new harmony of people from all nations brought together by music. With so many visitors arriving, finding a hotel in Jakarta may be tricky during festival dates. Jakarta is also a thriving business destination, with its hotels occasionally struggling to keep pace with demand during major events.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head of DiriectRooms.com, one of the internetâ€™s popular hotel booking sites, stresses that this is a huge event and that hotels across the city are likely to be fully booked. He suggests that booking a room well in advance of your arrival date is the safest way to ensure youâ€™re not sleeping on the streets!
