Potato Head Beach Club, Bali

2023 is nearing its end, and the time to celebrate is almost upon us. Honouring the transition into 2024, we’ve assembled an eclectic cast of musical protagonists to bring their nuanced sounds to Desa Potato Head.

Revered selectors Palms Trax, Shanti Celeste, Kamma & Masalo, and Omoloko are drafted to set the NYE mood, playing from daytime until deep into the night alongside a selection of friends and local favourites. As ever, our Beach Club will provide the oceanside setting, with a full stage and extended dancefloor playing host to far-reaching music from a diverse lineup.

Join us as we usher in the New Year on the Seminyak shores while expansive sounds and styles echo across the Desa dancefloor – from deep house to Motor City techno, global disco to broken rhythms, and much more in between.
