Bali Spirit Festival will host a free public concert at the Ubud Soccer Field on Saturday, February 18, 2012 from 5:00 -11:00 p.m. The open-air concert will feature some of Indonesia's best live musical acts, including Bali's award-winning KIS Band.

Part of an ongoing educational campaign to raise public awareness on the HIV epidemic which included the community-wide outreach initiative AYO!Kita Bicara (Let's Talk About) HIV/AIDS.

The fifth in a series of annual concerts sponsored by the Bali Spirit Festival, the musical event is geared towards Balinese audiences.

Last year's event attracted 3,000 people to the Ubud Soccer field.

Using music and dance to raise awareness on the growing threat of HIV/AIDS in Bali, the music and the messages delivered to the thousands expected to attend, the February 18, 2012 event forms a central part of theAYO! Kita Bicara outreach activities.

" We’re expecting another great turnout this year,” said Wiwi, Coordinator of the Bali Spirit Festival’s Community Outreach Programs, “and with an all-Indonesian lineup, we’re hoping that more local Balinese will enjoy themselves and pay attention to the serious threat of AIDS here on Bali. Especially youngsters.”

The AYO!Kita Bicara's Edu-Spirit Workshop initiative provide educational workshops for hundreds of school-aged teens in 26 schools in 2011 supported an aggressive media campaign to raise awareness about alarming infection growth numbers.

The latest data collected by the Gianyar Commission of AIDS shows the number of people infected with HIV or AIDS has more than doubled in Gianyar, from 181 cases to 405 cases in one year (2010-2011).

In addition to live music from the main stage, the event in Ubud will present art performances, a reproductive health consultation & campaign booth, and a youth expression space. On the main stage, a video screen will share information on HIV & AIDS and footage regarding AYO! Kita Bicara and related organizations and their work in the community. Provided as a free service to the people of Ubud and is financed by the BaliSpirit Festival, the event also enjoys support from Yamaha and Sutra Condoms.

Ayo! Kita Bicara (Let’s Talk About) HIV/AIDS is an AIDS awareness initiative which uses innovative school based HIV prevention and education to support high school students in Bali’s most at risk areas.

Ayo’s! school education activities represent a fresh and innovative effort to stop the alarming spread of HIV and AIDS in Bali, as well as to curb discrimination against Balinese victims of HIV and AIDS and their families.
