Off and Racing & Ready to Rock


It’s already August which means Melbourne Cup is but a few months away and time to get back in the saddle to start planning for Bali’s biggest event on the annual social calendar! As always, it’s sure to be a stellar line up of entertainment as FINNS are sticking with their successful recipe featuring Australian home grown talent. Cup day guests are in for even more than a triple treat this year with not one, not two, but FOUR well known Aussie vocalists. Household names in Oz throughout the eighties, nineties and noughties; Paul Gray (of Wa Wa Nee), Mark Gable (Choirboys), Jason Singh (Taxiride) and Reece Maston ( X-Factor winner 2011) will grace the stage as ‘The Voices’ in a celebration of Australian music, ensuring an unforgettable afternoon of awesome tunes, great food, and fabulous fun. Relive some of those fantastic hits that became our unofficial Aus rock anthems like Run to Paradise, Everywhere You Go and Stimulation and get ready to rock and roll.x

That’s right party people! Tuesday November 7th sees the Moet Marquee back on club grounds and early bird tickets are already available at discount prices for members and non members until September 30th when remaining tickets will go on sale (at the regular price!). Purchase places for a table of ten or simply one for yourself and wait and see who will be your ‘cup crowd’ for the day!

Early bird tickets for members are Rp1.8 mill per single and Rp 1.7 mill (per person) when you book for a table of ten. Tickets for non members and purchases for members post September 30th will be just a little bit more at Rp1.9 mill (Rp1.8mill pp/table of ten) – that’s if there are any left by then!

Marquee tickets include three hours of free flow French champagne, quality wines and beers along with tasty canapés and a gourmet lunch. Gates open at 10am with a welcome drink and a chance to secure your winning tickets! Champagne and canapes are to be served from 11am with seating from 11.45 and the race of the day at 12 noon. Help yourself to gourmet lunch from 12.30pm and the free flow continues until 2pm. Raffles and auctions are planned throughout the day and of course all proceeds go toward respected Bali charity, Solemen Indonesia. Once the race and fashions on the field formalities are done and dusted, it’ll be time to get the real party rolling with music and DJs from 2pm and the main event from 4pm as The Voices take to the stage to entertain you.

Don’t delay, at this rate, November’s not creeping up slowly. Giddy up, grab your tickets and shout it out to your friends now for a chance to be a part of one hot day of entertainment. Renowned as one of Bali’s best events on the entertainment calendar, Melbourne Cup at ‘The Club’ attracts a large number of international visitors who come specifically for Cup Day and return the following year for more! Tickets are available from FINNS Beach Club and FINNS Recreation Club receptions.
