This year’s Java Rockin’ Land is set to take place July 22-24 to bring an epic lineup of international headliners to the Big Durian: 30 Seconds to Mars American rock band 30 Seconds to Mars will be making its first trip to Indonesia to perform on the first day of the festival. Hailing from Los Angeles, California, the group was founded in 1998 by frontman Jared Leto, who also plays rhythm guitar, and his brother Shannon on drums. Mars released its self-titled debut album in 2002, producing two singles “Capricorn (A Brand New Name)” and “Edge of the Earth,” which started the band's mainstream success. They released their second album three years later entitled “A Beautiful Lie.” Their latest studio album, “This Is War,” was released in 2009. The album's first single was “Kings and Queens.” The band is planning to go on a long hiatus after finishing their current tour. Good Charlotte The festival is the first Jakarta show for many of the anticipated bands, but not for the pop-punk’s Good Charlotte, which visited the capital in 2007. Founded in 1996 by identical twins Joel (vocals) and Benji Madden (guitar), the band features Paul Thomas on bass, Dean Butterworth on drums and Billy Martin also on guitar. Good Charlotte’s second album, released in 2002 and titled “The Young and the Hopeless,” produced the singles “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” and “Anthem” and introduced them to the mainstream. Their third album, “The Chronicles of Life and Death,” came out in 2004. In 2007, they released “Good Morning Revival,” while their last album “Cardiology” was released late last year. Neon Trees Neon Trees will also take a bite of Jakarta's heart with their energetic tunes. The Provo, Utah, alternative rock band is motored by Tyler Glenn (vocals, keyboards), Chris Allen (guitar), Branden Campbell (bass guitar, vocals) and Elaine Bradley (drums, percussion, vocals). Their debut album, “Habit” was released last year, producing the platinum-single “Animal.” The Cranberries Now, get your flannel shirts, ripped jeans, Dr. Martens boots and corduroy jackets, ready, because Java Rockin’ Land is set to flash back to the 90s. The festival will showcase seasoned band The Cranberries, who will be taking the stage on the second day of the festival. The Irish rock band first came to international prominence in the 1990s with their debut album “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?” During their stint in the music industry, the band has produced top singles such as “Linger,” “Dreams,” “Zombie,” “Ode to My Family,” “Salvation” and “Promises.” Currently, the band, which is run by Dolores O'Riordan (vocals), Noel Hogan (guitar), Mike Hogan (bass) and Fergal Lawler (drums), is working on an all-new album. Also on the lineup of music industry veterans are English band Happy Mondays and Australian group Frente, who will be playing on the last day of the festival. The lineup also includes many Indonesian bands, including Sheilaon7, a popular band hailing from Yogyakarta. They would be playing on the mainstage, alongside the famous international bands aforementioned. GNFI caught up with them and ask, how does it feel to be playing on the same stage with all these famous bands, and this is what they say "Yang pasti excited, bangga & suatu kehormatan bisa perform & kasih kontribusi rock versi Sheilaon7 di salah satu festival rock berkualitas terbesar. Rock adalah musik yang universal, semoga musik So7 bisa menambah keragaman java Rockin'land" (It is an honor for us. We're certainly excited & proud, to be able to perform & showcase Sheilaon7’s version of rock in one of the biggest rock festival. Rock is a universal music, may SO7’s music add to the diversity of Java Rockin'land” Good luck boys! And to all the other Indonesian bands performing at Java Rockin'land, rock on dudes!
