Asia Music Festival in Sarawak

The Asia Music Festival in Sarawak is going to be held this 4-5 October 2013 in the city of Miri with an interesting line up of performers from around the region.

Spread over two days, the event will also be held at the Eastwood Valley Golf and Country Club which is 5km from Miri city centre.

This inaugural event is set to become another iconic music festival for Sarawak after the success of Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) and Borneo World Music Expo held in Kuching city and the Borneo Jazz Festival held in Miri.

This time around, the Sarawak Tourism Board will bring together several key musicians from India, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Korea, Brunei as well as Malaysia to the AMF 2013.

The Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) looks forward to introduce this new event with its objective of attracting the Asian expatriate community working in neighboring countries like Brunei, Indonesia, Singapore and the region to come and celebrate the music while visiting the destination.

The atmosphere at the event is also planned to be that of a carnival as apart from the night shows, there will also be a fun event starting in the afternoon with lots of food, fun and games.

STB is also proud to continue its successful internship and volunteer program, which was initiated in past events like the Rainforest World Music Festival.

Through the Asia Music Festival Volunteer Program, the Board will provide a unique learning experience for the volunteers and interns whilst at the same time being exposed to the product experiences of Sarawak’s culture, nature and adventure.

STB will also continue to collaborate with Universities and Colleges as part of an industry advisory platform and to undertake this initiative as part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.
