Ferry Dermawan


Ferry Dermawan is the Jakarta-based co-founder of Plainsong Live, one of the most prominent Indonesian concert promoters in recent years and a brand that has become synonymous with high-quality music events.After rebranding as Plainsong Live, in late 2019 Dermawan revived Joyland Festival, a G Production-era program that he revamped into a refreshing, family-friendly event that features the cream of Indonesia’s most beloved artists and up-and-coming music talent, along with acclaimed global names such as Cornelius, Thundercat, Phoenix, M.I.A., Interpol, Bloc Party, Alvvays and more. Since 2022, Joyland Festival has expanded even further with the event now being held in Bali during the first quarter of the year and in Jakarta before year’s end. Besides Joyland, Dermawan and Plainsong Live have also organized memorable tour stop concerts for the likes of FKJ and Men I Trust, as well as a stunning showcase for Efek Rumah Kaca’s well-reviewed latest album Rimpang.
