Sweaty, overcrowded, overpriced, overpoliced festival? Stadium or pub gig?
Sniffer dogs or Surf Music In Paradise? Hmmmm…

Richard and Susie Wessel, 2015 Kandooma Tex Perkins guests asked, “How could you ever go to a normal gig again?” straight after the first show. It was a sentiment shared by all who attended either Donavon or Tex’s shows.

The 2016 Surf Music In Paradise series is set to feature two epic weeks of music, surfing and socializing at two very different venues.

Iconic Australian musician Pete Murray is playing 3 x gigs in seven days at the beautiful Kandooma Resort, the Maldives in June 2016. Click here to enquire.

Tex Perkins will be joined by Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson for 6 shows in 7 days (between them) at Hidden Valley Resort in Bali in September 2016. Click here to enquire.

You may recall TPW kicked off our very own unique concept with two exclusive boutique surf music shows featuring Californian surfer/musician Donavon Frankenreiter back in June 2014 at Kandooma.

The 80 stoked fans who attended said it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. One fan, Trevor Burns said, “I have never been to another gig that was anything like it, not even close. It was such a special week hanging out with my partner Jess, jamming with and singing along with Donny and then going surfing in the morning. Pete at Kandooma, or Tex Perkins and Phil Jamieson in Bali would be next level. I thoroughly recommend the experience for singles, couples or families. We met some cool people and the vibe was one of stoke.”

In September 2015, underground Australian music legend Tex Perkins (front man for seminal supergroups The Beasts Of Bourbon, The Cruel Sea, Tex, Don and Charlie, The Dark Horses and many more) performed 4 awesome shows at Kandooma.

Tex and his family enjoyed the week away with fans so much they immediately signed on for Bali in September 2016.

Personally, I have never enjoyed a bunch of chilled acoustic gigs so much. They are like private gigs in your backyard,  with friends, but they are in paradise.

Regular TPW client Glenn Jeff’s summed up every attendee’s sentiments when he said, “Sitting less than 10 metres from the stage on a bean bag, a cold drink in hand, friends and family nearby, socializing and surfing with the musos and like-minded fans is unbeatable.”

Hidden Valley is going to be epic. The resort is well away from the crowds, five mins from Bingin and the other jewels of the Bukit. The acoustics are superb and we will have transport sorted to take you surfing, shopping…everything!

We are capping numbers for both these gigs to ensure they are intimate and a real value for money lifetime experience

If you book either of these experiences before December 31 you will absolutely guarantee your place at a super special gig well before we sell out.
