This week, Sounds of Downtown took to social media to announce that singer-songwriters Pamungkas, Tulus, Nadin Amizah and pop rock band Vierratale will be performing at the festival.

Sounds of Downtown is a festival that aims to “celebrate musical performance while experiencing other things related to music and art”. The one-day festival will take place on May 22 at Bengkel Space in Jakarta. Ticketing information has yet to be announced.

The festival also teased the rest of its lineup on social media, hinting at performances by Tiara Andini, Rizky Febian, Feby Putri, Yura Yunita and more, though their attendance is yet to be confirmed.

Pamungkas recently released single “Happy Birthday To You” earlier this month. The track serves as the fourth preview for her upcoming album, “Birdy,” which is due out this year.

Vierratale (formerly known as Vierra) recently released the album “Storytelling” in early February. The band formed in 2008 and released three more albums: ‘My First Love’ in 2009, ‘Love, Love & Love’ in 2011 and ‘Evolve’ in 2016.

Tulus recently released their fourth album “Manusia” in early March, while Nadin Amizah shared their EP “Kalah Bertaruh” in May 2021. In an interview with NME earlier this month, after her set at the Bali Joyland festival, she said that she currently has no plans to release any more solo material in the near future.

Besides the Sounds of Downtown Festival, other large-scale music events are taking place in Indonesia this year, including two Justin Bieber concerts, JogjaROCKarta Festival, Java Jazz Festival and more.
