Agenda and Speakers

What can I expect at A-Fest?

A-Fest is not a traditional seminar. It’s an event that brings together people who have, by nature, a desire to impact the world and to help push humanity forward.

By day, you’ll get powerful training on a particular theme, have profound mind shifts, get groundbreaking ideas, enjoy deep connections, and experience unique opportunities to give back, so you can play an even bigger game and significantly expand your ability to accomplish bold things. And while you can expect mind-blowing stage presentations from world renowned speakers, by night you'll dance the night away at incredible parties, and bond with some of the world's most brilliant people.

The important thing to remember is you’re not just attending one event. You're joining a brilliant community of people who meet regularly around the world and support each other in their journey to make an even greater impact on the world.

What’s the theme of A-Fest Bali?

The theme for A-Fest Bali is “Envisioning Your Future”, focused on the Art and Science of Envisioning a Bold Future for yourself and your mission. Learn how to create a 360 view of your entire life, how to think and dream bigger, how to inspire others with your dreams and how to rapidly execute towards that vision. We’ll be exploring both personal vision setting and vision setting for your business. We call this art “Envisioning”.

Who is speaking at A-Fest?

At A-Fest Bali we will bring to the stage top experts from around the world to talk about the Art and Science of Envisioning a Bold Future for yourself and your mission.

We will be bringing to the A-Fest stage someone we are incredibly excited about…. Emmy-nominated and world renown TV personality, storyteller, filmmaker, and sought-after keynote speaker, Jason Silva. More speakers will be announced in the lead-up to the event.

Main talks will range from 20 to 60 minute content dense presentations, to 90 minute breakout sessions. Here, you will get a chance to dig deeper into the topic of longevity and will get a chance to discuss some of the most fascinating new ideas and developments in the field of longevity. Speakers will be announced in the coming months.

What’s the start and end time each day?

The seminar session starts at 10:30 AM sharp and ends around 6PM. However, we also have optional morning activities and evening events planned, so don’t make any plans for the evenings because you can expect a lot of fun from early in the morning until well into the night! For all off-site evening events, we’ll have an early and late departure so you can choose which works best for you.

How much free time can I expect?

The short answer is very little. You’ll have an hour or so after each day to relax, eat, meditate, shower, etc. before the evening events begin. Of course, it’s completely optional whether you’d like to attend or not, but we can assure you, you don’t want to miss out. We have some amazing experiences planned that are included in the event ticket price. If you’re looking for more free time, we recommend arriving early or leaving a few days after.

Are there any events happening before A-Fest officially starts and how can I join?

At each A-Fest we add more value to our tribe by bringing some of the best trainers in the world to run workshops right before A-Fest. Therefore, expect to have some pre-event workshops.

Packing Guide

What is the dress code?

During the day, you’ll want to wear something comfortable and casual. Something you can move in! In the evening, pretty much anything goes. Ladies, pack dresses and heels if you are feeling inspired, and guys, feel free to pack a shirt and dress pants if you wish… it’s totally up to you! Many of our evening events take place outdoors, and sometimes on the sand, so ladies, it’s a good idea to pack some flat shoes. You'd also want to bring a jacket or something to keep you warm as evening might get a little bit chilly outdoors.

And make sure you save some room for your party costumes which we will announce soon.

Also, each morning we’ll have yoga, fitness and meditation classes. Make sure you pack exercise friendly clothing and shoes if you want to join in! Yoga mats will not be available for the classes so we recommend that you bring your own.

What should I bring with me?

The most important thing is a positive attitude and the willingness to have a lot of fun! As always we’ll have epic theme parties happening at A-Fest and we’ll make sure to let you know what costume you should bring.

Where can I get more information?
