Jakarta. The Soundrenaline music festival will return on Sept. 3-4 to the Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) cultural park in Bali, with rock taking center stage this time.

As announced on its website, the 14th edition of the festival will be themed "Louder Than Ever."

The announced lineup so far boasts Indonesia's leading rock bands, including /rif, Sheila On 7, Naif, NTRL, Kotak and Burgerkill.

White Shoes & The Couples Company, Maliq & D'Essentials, Goodnight Electric, Shaggydog, Mocca and RAN will represent the more pop-leaning side of the lineup.

Trending young singers Isyana Sarasvati, Tulus and Neonomora will also take to the stage during the weekend event.

Relative newcomers in the local indie music scene—cerebral prog rockers Barasuara and Vampire Weekend-esque Elephant Kind—are not to be missed.

Dipha Barus and DJ Yasmin will add EDM vibes to the festival.

Efek Rumah Kaca—the celebrated indie rock band that recently went on a hiatus after singer-guitarist Cholil Mahmud moved to New York—is also included in the lineup, though so far it is not known in what formation the group will play.

No word yet on ticket details from the festival organizers.
