Ubud’s unreal jungle club Kabana is turning one with a special anniversary weekend starting on July 14th. It features a special Italian guest plus music from Kabana all stars Touch the Sound, Cattaree, Max Degrand, Verona, Fadi, Shinta and more. There is nowhere else like it in the region, and in the last year it has welcomed the likes of Undercatt, David Mayer, Birds of Mind and many more. Now is your chance to experience the magic at this special anniversary party.
You have never seen anything like Kabana – it is an idyllic party paradise five minutes from Ubud that invites you to dance deep in the jungle with mesmeric lights and lasers, chill by a lush tropical infinity pool and head back to your villa at the nearby K Club Hotel for the afters with your own crew. There are four levels in all and seven pools to enjoy as you please, all surrounded by the deep greens and towering trees of the ancient jungle.
The club boasts a superb sound system from L’Acoustic, designed and built by Léon, a French-born, Bali-based design creative agency. It is sustainably made from organic, natural and local materials, gorgeous wooden decking, miles of bamboo and lush planting. It is enclosed by a jungle that is lit up at night with 3D mapped visuals and a hypnotising and enchanting laser show.
The first year of Kabana has set all new standards for the region and it is now a firm favourite with international travellers, world-wide music lovers and a community of expats so make sure you are part of it.

It represents everyone’s dream gig at the Burn. Its 2022 lineup featured the likes of Charlotte de Witte, Keinemusic, Jan Blomqvist, and Oliver Koletski. Nacho is part of their ongoing effort to feature rising acts alongside world-renowned talent. The Mayan Warrior YouTube channel rivals Cercle’s as the most exciting live showcase for electronic music https://www.youtube.com/@mayanwarrior The set was captured live as the Mayan Warrior bus was enduring the harsh Playa weather.
“As I am about to start, I see dozens of bikes powering through the storm. I trash my original plan on Track 2 as I try to capture the moment.
Eventually, a beautiful sunset emerges…”
Nacho Isa, although a “new face” in the world electronic scene, has been producing and touring around Europe and US for more than 10 years. The release of his recorded set for Mayan Warrior comes as an introduction to the world to NYC’s best-kept secret. Nacho has helped countless artists throughout the years through his music ventures. It seemed only a matter of time before the world took notice of his own career.
