Indonesia the most biggest Punker

Punk is huge in Indonesia. Some people say the scene in Jakarta is one of the largest on the planet. Or as one blog says, “Indonesia is the most biggest Punker in the world”.

Today I am meeting with punk musicians who are now heading up ministries around Indonesia.Ten years ago, I met some of the Jakarta punk scene kids who had become followers of Jesus and were now starting churches and ministries. Now its all a lot bigger and all over Indonesia. They had a national gathering last month and are planning to host an international punk festival next year.

Which means if you have a punk band and follow Jesus then you might get a warm Indonesian welcome down here.
