In its second year, this two-day eco-themed festival will feature well-known Southeast Asian musicians performing jazz, blues and a mix of other genres.

Environmental Message and Activities

The festival aims to promote Langkawi internationally as an eco-friendly holiday destination and to encourage the local community to keep the island clean and green. The festival’s theme this year is the Rivers Project which is a programme to keep Langkawi’s rivers clean. Activities focused on protecting the environment will be organised throughout the day.

“We need to convince the local islanders that their survival and prosperity is dependent upon keeping the island clean and that the island’s development must be sustainable,” says Patrick Chen, a co-organiser of the festival.

Following the concert, DJs are set to raise the temperature on the beach another notch from 11pm onwards.
