The perfect weekend was filled with sunshine, good times and a few surprises. Starting on Friday, the jaw dropping venue that is literally etched into the cliffs of Uluwatu came alive with a gathered mass of more than 2,000 party people who enjoyed a day and night full of pumping music and energetic dancing. With the doors opening at 11am the party started with the official opening with OMNIA’s executive team cutting the ribbon and letting the good times begin.
The day was filled with a selection of Indonesia’s top resident DJs laying down the perfect soundtrack for the festivities as guests arrived early to enjoy the unique daylife party experience. As the day went on, the dance floor grew and grew, and as the sun started to descend, one of Indonesia’s most celebrated DJs Dipha Barus took to the decks and the party really kicked off. Dipha was followed by Taiwan’s DJ RayRay who brought her own hard-driving sound to the OMNIA floor with a set filled with mash ups and big tunes. Next up was the big surprise of the day as a special surprise guest stepped into the DJ booth, none other than Saturday headliner Martin Garrix, who jumped at the request to perform a surprise one hour warm up set due to a delayed arrival (due to a missed flight connection) of his friend Marshmello. Martin built the crowd into a frenzy and then dropped the tempo perfectly setting things up for Friday’s star of the show, the masked maestro Marshmello. Arriving to a massive roar from the faithfully-gathered fans he delivered a blistering trademark set of energy filled EDM anthems accompanied by an amazing visual show which ended with fireworks exploding above the DJ booth in the steamy night sky.
Saturday saw another packed house full of party people once more enjoying the unique OMNIA Bali experience, basking in the sun and relaxing in the infinity pool, gazing out across the Indian Ocean. Endless celebrities and VIPs took the chance to fully enjoy the unique OMNIA VIP ambience in the sold out Cabanas which encircle the DJ booth and enjoyed the dedicated VIP swimming pool which surrounds the booth and provides a truly unique VIP experience.
Saturday was sound tracked by building future house beats from local stars Michaelis, LPR, and Jakarta’s Patricia Shuldz before China’s emerging talent DJ Lizzy Wang brought the party to a more energetic level setting the tone. Just before headliner Martin Garrix hit the stage OMNIA showcased the new video mapping on the enormous façade behind the club with an epic mapping show creating a spectacular introduction for the No.1 DJ in the world to take to the booth. Headliner Martin Garrix delivered a stellar performance, bringing his trademark energy to the booth, interacting with the fans as he delivered a set filled with his own massive hits and many more, driving the energy in the crowd to fever pitch, which was again topped off with a stunning fireworks show that illuminated the Uluwatu sky.
Sunday saw a different kind of party as Bali’s glamourous cosmopolitan island party set flocked south to bask in the sunshine sounds of OMNIA Bali’s signature Phoenix Sundays party. The sun shone bright and the party drifted beautifully into action as regular Phoenix DJs Tantra, PNNY, Wisdy, and James Taylor set the tone of the day with deep house, disco and tech-laced sounds as the vibe built towards the weekend’s final headliner, the legendary king of techno Richie Hawtin, who delivered a trademark set of deep bass and rolling techno to a crowd who were mesmerized by every twist and turn of the master’s set, bringing a suitable close to the wonderful Grand Opening Weekend.
OMNIA brought a new level of partying to Bali, showcasing service and experience to the guests who gathered from all over the world – all delivered in the stunningly-crafted venue, poised 100 metres above the Indian Ocean, genuinely delivering on the promise to ‘elevate your experience’.
