KUCHING: More than 18,000 tickets to the three nightly concerts of the 11th Rainforest World Music Festival, which kicks off Friday at the Sarawak Cultural Village near here, have been snapped up as of Wednesday.
Sarawak Tourism Board chief executive officer Gracie Geikie said the rush for tickets began several days ago.
She said the three preview shows in the city had generated great interest and boosted ticket sales among local music lovers.
Geikie said the organisers had limited the crowd for the three-day performance to 24,000 to ensure safety and comfort of the music lovers. Last year's festival attracted some 22,000 music lovers, nearly 60% of whom were non-Sarawakians.
