Troye Sivan, Rae Sremmurd, Anne-Marie Added to Indonesia's We The Fest 2019
We The Fest -- one of Southeast Asia's largest festivals for music, as well as fashion, food and the arts -- makes further additions to its burgeoning lineup from the very top of their respective genres.
With the current titans of pop, hip-hop, bass and indie all on show for the Jakarta, Indonesia, festival, organizer Ismaya Live continues to assert We The Fest's position as the go-to-festival of choice in the region.
New to the billing, and making his Indonesian debut, is Australian pop phenomenon Troye Sivan. Having made a steady rise to stardom over the past few years with Ariana Grande and Charli XCX collaborations, worldwide tours, and his latest smash hit "i'm so tired…" with Lauv, Sivan is set to showcase his glistening performance in Jakarta come July.
Joining him is another pop sensation that has exploded onto the scene in the past year: Anne-Marie. Her infectious sound, which includes an Ed Sheeran co-write on "2002," and energetic shows will undoubtedly be a crowd favorite.
Taking things into a more electronic sphere is Norwegian producer extraordinaire Cashmere Cat. With an eclectic sound and intriguing collaborations -- including Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Kanye West -- Cashmere Cat's show promises to be one of a kind.
In similar sonic territory, also joining the proceedings this year is future-bass trailblazer Jai Wolf and 88rising success story Joji. Together with returning Indonesian favorites Barasuara and Elephant Kind -- who both released chart-topping albums this year -- indie heavyweights The Adams, and Pamungkas, who will be making their festival debut, We The Fest 2019 looks set to have one of the most diverse and interesting lineups to date.

In addition, We The Fest has always prided itself on offering much more than just artist performances, and this year is no different, with the return of the festival's Beyond The Music area. Incorporating an Arts Village, Ismaya Food Town's Eats & Beats food court, a Cinema Club where old and new movies will be shown, WTF Con where fans can interact with curated brands and media partners, and a Carnifun games section, ticket-holders will be spoiled for choice when they want to take a break from the music.
Billboard Radio China is one of We The Fest's media partners and will be there to review the entire three-day festival.
