MIRI: The inaugural Asia Music Festival from Oct 4-5 promises the most electrifying eclectic mix of live music from Asian region bands.

To take place at Eastwood Valley Golf and Country Club, the festival has the objective of attracting the Asian expatriate community working in neighbouring Brunei, Bruneians themselves, as well as those from Sabah, Peninsular Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and other parts of the region.

A carnival atmosphere is planned apart from evening shows.

Based on the success of the Rainforest World Music Festival and the Borneo Jazz, Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) is confident that this new festival will thrill the crowd.

“This is an inspiring opportunity for everyone to come together and experience the adventure of yet another music festival,” said STB chief executive officer Datuk Rashid Khan.

Bands confirmed are Bembol Rockers (Philippines), Vstar featuring Kamal Musallam (Korea), Anthony Dassan Yen Party Band (South India), Orkes Soesah Tideor (Indonesia), Foxy Girls (Indonesia), Boy Thai Band (Thailand), Tritha (North India) and Fakhrul Razi (Brunei).
