On Saturday, September 30, 2017, SMA Negeri 3 Bandung held a cultural festival "Gathapraya". This cultural festival was held at Lapangan Bali. In this event, SMA Negeri 3 Bandung invites Band and famous artists in Indonesia or maybe even in the international world such as Vina Candrawati (famous sand painter in Indonesia), Didik Hadiprayitno or commonly known Didi Nini Thowok, NIDJI, HIVI, Elephant Kind, and other shows.The price of this cultural festival entrance ticket is 50000 rupiahs only for students of SMA Negeri 3 Bandung and 65000 rupiahs for visitors from outside SMA Negeri 3 Bandung who want to see the cultural festival on that day.
On that day, me and my friends follow a series of events that start at 8 am located in Saparua.There, we witnessed various cultural performances from various schools and continued with a parade around the area to invite people to come to the Gathapraya cultural festival. After that, we wait until the show begins.At 12 noon, the main gate has been opened to enter the cultural festival event along with a ticket purchase that is ready to serve visitors who want to enter the cultural festival event.
The event went lively as time went on. Most lively again during the peak event at night, where the start of performances from famous bands and artists in Indonesia. The show ends at midnight. Hopefully next year there is a cultural festival like this event which is even more festive
