Have any questions about the festival, packages or general enquiries? Read on.


Dream Machine is taking place on the June Long Weekend (8th-12th June) 2023. The festival is located at the exclusive Nusa Dua Resort Bali, on the eastern side of the Bukit Peninsula. There will be events at a number of the beachfront resorts during the day with the main stage located on the Peninsula’s ‘The Island’.

Dream Machine Festival is four days and nights of sun, sea, sounds, luxury and adventure. From morning yoga, swimming and snorkelling to cocktails and DJ’s by the pool each afternoon. At night, the Dream Machine main arena ‘The Island’ will light up the Bali Peninsula! There will be secret pop ups and much much more to follow.

If you’re looking for non-stop action, there will be an array of add ons available to purchase on the website, from boat parties and private yacht charters to heli tours, long lunches and an epic recovery party on the 12th June…if you want to add an extra night. 

There are a range of 4 & 5-star resort accommodations to choose from, with either beachfront access or tropical settings depending on budget and preference. 

Included in your package are return airport transfers. If you are traveling from other areas within Bali you will have to make your own way to your accommodation. There will be no refund for unused transfers.

All accommodation is located within Nusa Dua Resort with most properties within a short walk to the beach and Dream Machine’s main arena ‘The Island’. For those located further away, many of the hotels will offer a shuttle service or you can book a taxi for a very small fee.

The official currency of Bali (and all of Indonesia) is the Indonesian Rupiah (IDR), however the US Dollar is still widely used. All resorts will also accept credit/debit cards. 

You must follow all current Indonesian entry requirements as well as any new requirements which may come into effect prior to arrival, including vaccination and testing requirements. You can check and follow all departure and re-entry requirements for Australian's here:
