Where to Stay Nearby?
The SHVR festival will be held in Allianz Eco Park, in Ancol. This is the north of the City, not too far from the airport, but at least 45 minutes from the center.

The closer hotels from there are Aston Marina and Mercure Convention Center. They are average for their prices (around 50$ per night) and they may fill up quickly.

For better value for money, I recommend you to stay in Mangga Dua area instead, just a 5-10 minutes taxi ride to the event. There, you have plenty of street food and shopping malls (low-to-mid range). If you don't know Jakarta yet, you can spend your afternoon near Kota Tua, the city's historical quarter.

The most recommend hotels in Mangga Dua are:
Ibis Styles Mangga Dua (45$ per night) and Le Grandeur Hotel (70$ per night: An old luxury property but located just above a mall and with a rather good value for money).

You may also prefer staying closer to Jakarta's city center. In that case, I advise you the area near the shopping center Sarinah, particularly along Jalan Wahid Hasyim. You can see a list of recommended hotels here.

Preparing for the Event

You cannot bring your own drinks and food. Several bars and eating joints will be available during the event.

There is no particular dress code. However, it is recommended to bring comfortable light clothes and shoes.

Lockers will be available if you need, for a fee.

There will be 3 stages during the event, but the schedule for each artist has not been released yet. I will let you know about it as soon as I know more.

Age Limit
You must be 18 to enter the festival. No exceptions to the rule, an ID will be asked.
