RRREC FEST IN THE VALLEY is an alternative music festival 3 days 2 nights as a means of weekend getaway in the open air of the Tanakita campground, Situgunung, Sukabumi, West Java. The festival, which is held once a year, aims to provide a platform for creating a meeting point and a place to share knowledge among music festival lovers, musicians, artists, activists, local residents, festival makers, and the public from across disciplines and generations; all of whom will camp, gather, and adventure together for 3 days 2 nights at Tanakita in an intimate, warm, and comfortable hangout atmosphere. We believe that fresh, naughty and smart ideas often stem from a culture of getting together that is relaxed, spontaneous, and natural.
RRREC FEST IN THE VALLEY is a festival in the format of a weekend getaway – music camp package. which contains a series of programs that include: musical performances, film screenings, artist residencies, workshops, talks, children’s programs, and theater. These programs are carefully designed by the festival’s team of curators.
The music program features selected bands/musicians who are considered to have brilliant works. The line-up consists of an inspiring line of eccentric musicians, trusted music selectors and a panoramic view of experimental artists from Southeast Asia and beyond. The art exhibition is specifically supported by a residency program in order to produce works that are related to the environment and the local community. Talk sessions and workshops invite practitioners and organizations that are actively engaged in disseminating their knowledge to the public, and also invite creators, initiators, and artists to share their experiences in their respective work practices. Meanwhile, the film program will screen videos, short films, and feature-length films that add to the joy of the festival atmosphere.
