This year, PESTA BONEKA #5 will choose its theme as “HOME”. Home ia the place where everything are started. There is a big necessity to spend times with the people whom we called ‘FAMILY’. 

For the audience, the warmth of the festival will welcome them more than any other festivals do, the intimacy will be the thing that they will love. And for the participants, PESTA BONEKA will definitely bring them a very different journey of  experiencing the richness of culture, in an intimate way.
