Another massive music event is about to take place in Sarawak; this time, the Borneo Music Festival 2022 will be held at the Sarawak Cultural Village in Santubong, Kuching. This is also the first time this genre’s music festival is happening here.
Initially, the Borneo Music Festival 2022 was supposed to happen on the 10-11 April 2020, but due to the Covid19 pandemic, the event was postponed to this year, which is now confirmed as 9-10 September 2022.
Borneo Music Festival 2022
This first-of-its-kind outdoor music festival will unite world-renowned artists from six countries, uniting different music genres on one platform and providing a unique experience for today’s youth.
Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Abdul Karim also said that it shows that Sarawak is an ideal destination for music tourism in Malaysia and the region, whether it’s world music, jazz, country, or even popular music like dance, and these events were part of the ministry’s unremitting efforts to promote Sarawak’s diverse tourism offerings in culture, adventure, nature, food and festivals.
With a debut appearance in Sarawak, world-reknown musician Alan Walker has received diamond certification in Germany, and multi-platinum certifications in over ten countries, including the US and UK, for his ever-popular single “Faded” and has been continuously delivering thumping, melodic tunes with a string of hits and sold-out shows all over the world.
Crowned as one of South Korea’s hottest female DJs, DJ soda is no stranger to the scene. With millions of followers online, this international phenomenon known for her energetic, genre-blending live sets is sure to take the crowd on a high alongside her signature on-stage persona.
Local Malaysian DJs are also in the lineup, while Sarawak’s famous local band At Adau will also be one of the performing acts among the many other singers and bands.
