What Would You Do...With Bag Raiders

Classically trained musicians, Jack Glass and Chris Stracey formed Bag Raiders just under 10 years ago and have achieved hug critical and commercial success as an electronic music duo whose live shows and releases have seen them on an upward curve and regular visitors to Bali always pulling big crowds and blowing everyone away with their innovative and charged performances and material!

Next weekend at Ulu Cliffhouse expect nothing less as they grace the Cliffs of Uluwatu with their electric performance as part of Love on The Rocks.
