The threat of political unrest has prompted Transmission Festival to cancel their Indonesian event, Transmission Jakarta.
Through the following statement, Transmission has made the case that the election will pose too great of a risk for the trance event to take place as planned:
“It is with much regret that we have to inform you that Transmission Jakarta 2019 will be postponed. With the recent developments to the political climate and with due respect to the upcoming Presidential elections, we have decided to postpone Transmission Jakarta to a later date.
Do pardon us for the inconvenience and we hope to see you at one of the other upcoming Transmission events.”
The event was set to take place on February 9th, 2019 - two months before April 17th, when the presidential elections will take place.
