With a passion for all things music and events, Wkndfest is an up and coming event organiser that aims to reignite the ripple effect in Malaysia’s live music scene starting with giving Malaysians the ultimate music experience this September. Wkndfest Vol. 1: K-Pop Edition will give Malaysians the opportunity to catch notable artists such as iKON, Momoland, Mamamoo, (G)I-dle and many more live in Kuala Lumpur.
The brainchild of Khairul Anwar, Amirul Hafiz and Shahrin Kamaruzaman; Wkndfest came to life with the sole purpose of bringing together music lovers from all around Malaysia to enjoy live music events from different genres every year. Making this the first instalment of Wkndfest’s music experience, the genius trio are already working towards launching 3 Wkndfest series by 2020 focusing on K-Pop, Hip-Hop and Pop.
“As music lovers ourselves, we were inspired to organise quarterly music events with a focus on different genres each so we could touch various music communities. It’s the embodiment of an exhilarating atmosphere where these hardcore supporters come together and catch their favourite artists under one roof making it the ultimate music experience.” said Khairul Anwar, Wkndfest Managing Director. Bringing these well-known music groups together as part of the first instalment of the Wkndfest experience was an intentional move by the Wkndfest founders having experienced and observed the intensity of a K-Pop environment themselves.
“We can’t think of a better genre to start our first WkndFest event than with K-pop as we’ve seen an immense interest and following over the years. Having been inspired by the passion of K-Pop fans and how incredible it’s being embraced internationally, we thought it the genre represented the current trend of today’s music.” said Amirul Hafiz, Wkndfest Executive Director.
With plans to release more artist lineups, Wkndfest plan to have many more popular artists to announce within the next couple of months to ensure that Malaysians and K-Pop fans around the Southeast Asia region have an unparalleled moment with their favourite performers. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to bring down as many talented artists from South Korea for our first ever Wkndfest event. Definitely the first of many to come.” said Shahrin Kamaruzaman, Operation Director.
Formed in December 2018, WkndFest was created to provide the ultimate live music experience focusing on a specific genre each time wanting to create a tailored experience for music lovers everywhere.
