The Castlemaine Jazz Festival is proud to be partners with the Ubud Village Jazz Festival a music festival situated in the artistic surroundings of Ubud, in Bali, Indonesia.

Local musicians John Hannah and Gwynn James were in Bali in August last year and attended the Ubud Village Jazz Festival. They suggested that the Bali and Castlemaine festivals become partners. The events would promote each other and send bands back and forth as a gesture of friendship.

The Bali musicians then organised funding for travel to Australia, and the CJF committee has applied for funding to send a band to the UVJF in August this year.
