1When and where can I purchase tickets?
Tickets will be available for purchase at Paradiso Ubud, Earth Cafe Seminyak and selected venues in Bali one month prior to the festival and are available online now via Eventbrite here
2I’m travelling with children – Is the festival child friendly and will I need to purchase a separate ticket for them?
Yes, the festival is absolutely child friendly! One of the biggest aims of the festival is to educate the next generation, so we will have a variety of children’s activities on offer, along with screenings and entertainment. Free entry will be permitted for children up the age of 12.
3Where does the festival take place?
The festival takes place at Paradiso Ubud
and the surrounding area, which is located in central Ubud, just off the main street of Jalan Hanoman. Taksu Spa is located a few hundred meters from Paradiso and the street between them will be home to vendors and street entertainment.
Ubud is often regarded as Bali's spiritual and cultural heart. Located 37km from Denpasar's Ngurah Rai International Airport and towards to centre of the island, the area is easily accessible by taxi and takes around 1 and half hours, largely dependent on traffic.
4Are there any cheap hotels to stay within walking distance?
Ubud is home to many hotels, homestays, Airbnb villas and luxury suites. From quaint Balinese designed joglo's to 5 star hotels complete with private swimming pools, you're guaranteed to find something within your price range in the area.
We will be posting a list of trusted and BVF recommended hotels in the coming months, including special offers and discounts for BVF attendees. Below are a few that are located within walking distance:
Anumana Hotel Ubud - 10-minute walk from the BVF
Gayatri Bungalows - 7-minute walk from the BVF
Teba House Ubud Guesthouse - 7-minute walk from the BVF
5When will the program be announced?
The 2017 Bali Vegan Festival Program will be announced in the days before the festival, however please check our social media accounts for updates on our confirmed speakers, workshops, activities and performers.
6Is the event fully vegan?
Yes, all of the products and produce that will be sold and consumed in the festival grounds will be fully vegan. Down to Earth/Earth Café which is adjacent to Paradiso last year announced that they were removing honey from their menus, so all produce sold here is now 100% vegan. We will also be vetting our vendors to ensure no animal products, including leather and beeswax will be sold.
7Will alcohol be available?
Yes, alcohol will be available at the restaurant of both venues, Earth Café and Taksu as well as specialist vendors.
8Will there be refillable water stations?
Yes, water will be available free of charge around the venues. Please bring a refillable water bottle and ask our staff and volunteers.
9Can I volunteer?
Yes! We are always looking for like-minded helpers to assist with the various festival tasks. We ensure our volunteers are well-fed on delicious vegan food and also get a chance to experience the festival. For more information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
10How do I get to the festival if I'm staying outside Ubud?
