So what is all the hypes about?!
Malaysia Music Festival or using its acronym ‘M-Fest’ is a musical festival created by a small of group of music enthusiasts who want to promote the local music industry and to help nurture talents in
performing arts among youths below the age of 30. It is open to international students too.
The organizers are launching a nationwide search for new and previously undiscovered talents to participate in the music festival. They are looking for those who can sing, dance or play any music instrument.
Panel of judges will select top 20 participants for a final live audition in October. Eventually nine finalists will be selected to participate in the music festival on 3rd December 2011 at the Cheras Indoor Badminton Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.
One of the nine finalists shall be selected via online voting by the public. The one with the highest votes among the top 20 earns a direct qualification to the M-Fest. Online voting shall commence once the audition is closed on 7th October 2011.
All nine finalists shall be given a chance to perform live with top Malaysian artistes at the music festival. Malaysian artistes who have confirmed their participation are Gary Chaw, Yuna, Z Chen, Victor Wong, Bunkface, Thomas Jack, Ah Bin, Danny One and Gin Lee. They represent a wide music genre such as pop, R&B, alternative rock, folk, hip hop and jazz.
Local pop stars such as Gary Chaw, Z Chen and Victor Wong are thrilled to collaborate with young participants in a live concert for the first time. (well, I am thrilled too =P ) Yuna, another hugely talented artiste, is looking forward to work with some undiscovered talents in the country.
