Two internationally acclaimed festivals are held in Ubud each year: the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, which celebrates literature from around the world, and the Bali Spirit Festival, which hosts a range of accomplished yoga and dance practitioners and musicians.
Both events are going from strength to strength and have surely contributed to Ubud’s reputation of being one of the most exciting towns in Asia. While they’re in full swing, you’ll find evidence of their festivities all over town.
What’s more, the annual Ubud Village Jazz Festival is now a fixture at ARMA, with bands from countries as far flung as Holland, Japan, Brazil, Germany, Malaysia, Indonesia and more, playing a variety of jazz styles.
If you enjoy a lively atmosphere when a truly international crowd descends on Ubud, come at festival time!
