Digital escapism from Bali to everywhere.
Fundamentally, HEADSTREAM seeks to unearth new and unheard voices, connect communities and provide a global stage for the archipelago’s many DJs, collectors, creatives, thinkers, musicians and cultural heroes, which is where the digital streaming service occupies an important space.
Located at the entrance of Desa Potato Head in Seminyak, HEADSTREAM’s headquarters sit beneath ‘The Womb’, a remarkable 90 metre bamboo archway built by revered artist Nano Uhero. Remaining firmly on brand, the studio is a temple of repurposed materials. Sustainably designed in collaboration with rising Bali-based architect, Zhi Xiong Chan of ZXC Studio, the space comprises 564 kilograms of recycled plastic. Motor oil bottles repurposed into panels and mineral water caps collected from waterways across Bali form the display window and interior surfaces. All 170 kilograms of flooring is formulated out of industrial rubber rejects.

What People Say
“Fronting as an on-site studio space and record store that moonlights as a digital streaming platform, HEADSTREAM’s true purpose actually lies in shining a light on the voices, stories and sounds of Indonesia in front of the world…sustainably. From this homebase, the team will be beaming content to the world daily from 7am-7pm GMT+8. Breaking free from its once musically anchored agenda, HEADSTREAM looks to evolve the “beach club’s” connection with its global audience and introduce forward-thinking elements of local culture alongside a regionally focused leftfield soundtrack.
“Kicked off on 2 October, HEADSTREAM’s in-studio streaming service runs live daily from 7am to 7pm (Bali time). While the spotlight is centred on Bali DJs and collectors, expect occasional contributors from other Indonesian cities like Jogja and Jakarta. Each day’s lineup is posted on the HEADSTREAM site – you might find a wake-up call with Nindy Noto’s ‘Kukuruyuk’, followed by Bmore beats from Neu Daance to perk up your afternoon.”
“Every experience on offer at Potato Head Studios has been carefully crafted by the community, for the community. Among them are sustainability workshops for adults and children at Sustainism Lab, Potato Head’s own streaming station, Headstream, which is set to broadcast talks and music programs from local artists and rising stars 12 hours a day, and Studio Eksotika – a curated library, listening lounge and co-working centre on the mezzanine floor.”
