Rudiartha said that this New Year’s party theme is ‘From Kuta With Love’. He explained”We are still holding year-end celebrations in Kuta, we will convey the details later. However, the concept is the same as the previous year.”

He did not reveal how much money the Badung Regency Government has assigned to put on the show, but in previous years the authorities have invested over IDR 1.8 billion in events like this to pull out all the stops.

The fireworks show itself will be best viewed from outside the tsunami shelter. Rudiartha said that more details will be revealed soon.

For tourists wishing to attend one of Bali’s hundreds of New Year’s Eve events, it is highly advisable to book tickets now. Big events like the Finns New Year’s Eve party in Canggu have already sold out.

Fortunately, tourists don’t need to be in Bali to book tickets and the vast majority of events are selling tickets online on international booking platforms.

The fireworks and New Year’s Eve party on Kuta Beach will be free and open to the public, and the beachfront is also a great spot for fireworks going off across the southern coastline.

Over on the Bukit Peninsula, the GWK Cultural Park will be hosting what is set to be the biggest fireworks show on the island. 

The GWK Cultural Park, which sits close to the resort of Uluwatu, is known for its incredible fireworks displays and this year is no exception.

Organizers of the most spectacular fireworks party in Bali have confirmed that they have exactly 8,888 fireworks to let off at midnight for a very special reason. 


GWK Cultural Park Operations Director, Stefanus Yonathan Astayasa explained “This year the number of fireworks that will be exploded is 8,888 shots for 5 minutes”

“We believe that this number is endless luck because the number 8 is endless.”


And the party is set to take tourists to infinity and beyond. The lineup of DJs and musicians set to perform across the New Year’s long weekend will keep the vibes high long into the night.

Moreover, the GWK Cultural Park has put measures in place to ensure that tourists can party-goers can get in and out of the venue as easily as possible.

With heaps of traffic set to be traveling through Uluwatu, Pecatu, and Ungasan over the festive season the police, army and local pecalang will all be out directing traffic and keeping things moving. 


While many of Bali’s top New Year’s Eve parties have already sold out, or are close to selling out, tourists still have plenty of choice.

In the Kuta, Seminyak, and Legian area venues like Desa Potato Head, Mrs Sippy, Motel Mexicola and La Favela are all planning incredible New Year’s Eve celebrations. 

Over in Uluwatu, all the big beach clubs have lavish parties lined up, including Sundays Beach Club, Savaya, Ulu Cliffhouse, and Single Fin.
