Indonesia’s first fashion-forward establishment by MNC Group, The F Thing has announced a stellar collaboration with The Livescape Group to present the debut of FUTUREPUBLIC music festival, which will take place at the renowned Allianz Ecopark Ancol in Jakarta, Indonesia on Saturday, 23 February 2019.
As an evolving trendsetter, The F Thing noticed a gap that needed to be filled in the local lifestyle and music scene. Knowing that they could make a difference, the idea of FUTUREPUBLIC was born. The experiential music festival is set to bring music, fashion and lifestyle enthusiasts together to experience a totally unique event in Jakarta for the very first time.
The brand’s vision isn’t just limited to highlighting the advancement of fashion through creative visuals, editorial pieces and news. With O2O (online to offline) as its core, The F Thing has immersed itself in creating various activations and events that bridges the gap between fashion and lifestyle. The F Thing’s vision of creating a truly unique experience that appeals to their followers sees them collaborating with Livescape Group, one of the biggest event agencies in Southeast Asia that is no stranger to curating experiential events.
“Music festivals are a big part of today’s youth’s lifestyle. FUTUREPUBLIC will be a uniquely different music festival, blending in music, fashion, and other elements of lifestyle. We believe in the radical. The radically positive new generations that will bring about change and innovation,” (Valencia Tanoesodibjo, CEO and founder of The F Thing)
FUTUREPUBLIC was conceived to bring forth a brand-new festival concept that has never been done before in Indonesia. The festival will see the organisers transform the Allianz Ecopark Ancol into an immersive world of art, creativity, technology and imagination with its visionary landscape that falls in line with The F Thing’s core principals.
“The F Thing has entrusted us with their concept and creative freedom to redefine what this festival experience should be and we cannot wait for everyone to experience it come February 23rd, 2019." (Yudha Budhisurya, Managing Director The Livescape Group's Indonesia Division)
The luscious venue will transport festival-goers into a futuristic world that features two mind-blowing stages, the F-Stage and the House Party. These two platforms will host an array of world-renowned hip-hop, soul, electronica and pop artists. FUTUREPUBLIC has just announced its first phase line-up which sees them bringing down Grammy Award nominee, Mura Masa and Los Angeles based DJ and producer, TOKiMONSTA as headliners with more highly sought-after international acts to follow.
Mura Masa’s collaborated track with A$AP Rocky, “Lovesick” peaked at top spot number on the Spotify Viral charts in the United Kingdom and the United States. TOKiMONSTA’ résumé includes releases on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label and collaborations with names like Anderson .Paak, eclectic and atmospheric beats propelled her own star to world-class festivals.
Supporting them at FUTUREPUBLIC are Indonesia’s most celebrated local heroes like A. Nayaka, Dipha Barus, Inside Out Choir, Kallula, Matter Mos, Monica Karina and Tuan Tigabelas.
With Allianz Ecopark Ancol creating the perfect backdrop to the music, the festival will also feature state-of-the-art installations and lighting effects throughout the venue. Festival punters will get to roam free and journey to the deep ends of the magical neon forest and the vibrant neon house.
In addition, the festival will also be serving a plethora of food and beverage selections across the festival grounds for guests to keep their momentum at a high. Festival punters can also take a break from the music and explore the cleverly converted shopping area located at the festival grounds — a familiar concept often organized by The F Thing through its various offline activations, and as such it distinguishes the festival from the rest.
Being the first fashion/lifestyle e-commerce and digital media platform, The F Thing aims to be the bridge for the creation of new trends, culture, and act as a one stop hub for both local and global fashion brands in a single portal. With FUTUREPUBLIC as their first festival, The F Thing is set to revolutionise the festival scene and teleport fans into a futuristic utopia of musical supremacy with its ultimately fresh concept whilst setting the tone on what’s to be an innovative festival experience unlike any other.
