As the Bali Spirit event celebrates its fifth year of existence, news of its magic has reached around the world. Ticket sales have doubled annually as the buzz spreads and a lot of the increase in festival patronage is from Americans. After the recent woes of the global financial situation, security fears and increasing costs of living, Americans have found refuge in Bali pursuing a different way of thinking and an alternate lifestyle. With the many International conferences, festivals and the visit from Barack Obama in November 2011, Americans confidence has increased in travelling to south east Asia and in particular Bali.
The Bali Spirit Festival bring together celebrated musicians, healers, yogis and dancers from America and the rest of the world, but it has also become a magnet for fans, students and followers of every calling. The Festival has cemented its place as not only one of Asia’s premier events but as one of the most popular holistic festivals in the world.
