The Jakarta Tourism agency will hold the Jakarta Music Festival on Dec. 5, targeting thousands of people for the one-day event to be held from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Tourism agency deputy head Tinia Budiati said the festival would show the diversity of Jakarta's music.

There will also be a session for a tribute to the late Betawi comedian and singer Benyamin S., and street children will also perform in the event.
