Tagline : “The New Spirit of Heritage"

The tagline ‘The New Spirit of Heritage’ is expected to be the soul of this event. Sanur’s cultural and historical heritage is unique and as old as Bali civilization, even Indonesian. For that, we should honor and keep that which is inherited from our fathers. On the other hand, the young generation is challenged to give a new vigor in terms of creativity and modern development, to maintain the existing inheritance.


Theme for 2018

The Sanur Village Festival XIII is themed “Mandala Giri”, which literally means circle and mountain. For the Balinese, the mountain represents the head, orienting to the spirit and culture. This 5-day festival aims to facilitate and develop the Sanur community’s creativity and achieve creativity and tourism synergy. 


This year’s festival refocuses on mount Agung, where its eruption back in November 2017 created a reflection of humanity and closeness to nature, which must be embraced and become a part of Sanur community’s spirit of creativity. Sensitivity towards Mount Agung’s existence and condition should encourage togetherness and familiarity, respect and protection of the environment, inspiring the community, and reconfirming that remains Bali safe to be visited as one of the best world destination. 


The first festival held back in 2006, which was a respond to the slowing of tourism post second Bali bombing (2005), still struggling from the first incident back in 2002. The following year, SVF II (2007) was launched with the theme “The New Spirit of Heritage” to give new spirit to the cultural ancestral heritage that preserved the coastal areas, environment and art creativity, and sustainable economy.
