The Yak Awards 2016!

The Yak Awards 2016 – held at LV8 Bali Resort Hotel – did what it promised … we blew the bloody doors off for 700 of Bali’s best and brightest!

The gala party cum award ceremony was held on Friday, December 2, 2016 at the Vue Beach Club at the LV8 Bali Resort Hotel in Canggu and was themed as “The British Invasion”, celebrating the golden era of British music and fashion.

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came, saw and conquered in what was the highlight party of the year. And of course a big shout out to all our sponsors! See you in 2017 …
