PHUKET, 22 February, 2012 - HotelTravel.com is offering special discounted hotel rates just in time to promote the Java Jazz Fest (from 2 to 4 March), one of the largest and most popular musical festivals of its kind in Asia.

HotelTravel.com Chief Information Officer, Olivier Dombey said the Java Jazz Fest would be a must see event for anyone staying in Jakarta during late February or early March.

"Visitors to the Indonesian capital should start making plans to attend as soon as possible. Ten years ago you had to travel to Europe, Australia or the United States to catch A-list musical acts at large festivals like this.

“Now the world's top musicians are travelling to perform in Asia as events like Java Jazz Fest have started to attract the interest of both sponsors and music lovers alike," he added.

The Java Jazz Fest has grown to become the largest musical festival of its kind in Asia. This year's line-up reads like the who's who of all-time greats including child prodigy Stevie Wonder plus Al Jarreau, Erykah Badu, The Manhattan Transfer, Herbi Hancock, Bobby McFerrin, Pat Metheny and many local Indonesian jazz musicians to cover just a small part of the massive three-day event programme.
