Borneo Music Festival 2022 At Sarawak Cultural Village

Published on


KUCHING – Alan Walker of the UK and DJ Soda of South Korea will perform at Borneo Music Festival Live 2022 at Sarawak Cultural Village on September 9 and 10.

The first-of-its-kind outdoor music festival in Sarawak features prominent artists from six nations and brings together different music genres.

Minister Dato Sri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said the music festival was postponed for two years owing of the COVID-19 pandemic and he was delighted Sarawak was coming alive again with the festival this year.

Large-scale live music events like these boost Sarawak’s standing as a regional attraction with a line-up of well-known international performers, including DJ Alan Walker from the UK and DJ Soda from South Korea.

“It also goes to prove that Sarawak is an appropriate location for music tourism in Malaysia and the region, whether it’s world music, jazz, country, or popular music,” Abdul Karim said at a press briefing about the music festival at a hotel yesterday.

DJ Alexis Grace, DJ Ice Cream, DJ Chaca, DJ Myvax, DJ Paul, MC Vibe of Malaysia, Nicole Chen from Singapore, DJ X Factor from the Philippines, DJ Venom C, and Moski Love from Indonesia are also at the music festival.

During Adau, Tuku’ Kame’, Buloh Berkocak, and Rynn Lim will perform at the festival.

Abdul Karim said these events were part of the ministry’s ongoing promotion of Sarawak’s culture, adventure, wildlife, food, and festivals.

Kuching Waterfront Jazz and Miri Country Music Festival will follow Rainforest World Music Festival, Borneo Jazz Festival, Sibu International Dance Festival, Borneo Cultural Festival, Kuching Festival, and Tribute to Queen Concert.

Abdul Karim claimed the Rainforest World Music Festival had 16,000 people, above the objective of 12,000, and the Borneo Jazz Festival had 3,008 visitors.

Abdul Karim stated that Firmament Event Studio had been using their regional presence to offer bundled packages with music festival tickets, accommodations, and flights to attract more foreign tourists to the state and organise a special Sarawak trip for influencers and the media.
