Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) Lauded As One Of The Top Five Music Festivals In Asia

Kuching, 23 March 2011 - Fresh from being voted a Top 25 music festival worldwide by renowned world music magazine, Songlines, the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) adds another feather to its cap by now being listed amongst the Top Five festivals in Asia by ContentCreatorZ, an international website. This augurs well for the festival which is making a name for itself in the international music scene and thus also putting Sarawak on the world tourism map.

ContentCreatorZ's website lists key events and festivals from around the globe. Rainforest World Music Festival was rated in the Top Five amongst other acclaimed music festivals in Asia. Amongst the festivals lauded are Seoul World DJ Festival in South Korea, Beijing Pop Festival, Jaffna Music Festival and Madras Music Season which are held in India.

The line-up for this year's Rainforest World Music Festival, held annually in Kuching, Sarawak (Malaysia), has been finalized. Now well into its second decade, the Rainforest Festival, attracts more than 20,000 international and local music fans to three magical days of daytime music workshops and action-packed nightly shows. The event will be held from July 8 to 10 at the Cultural Village, which is located 35km outside Kuching and set against the magnificent backdrop of the legendary Mount Santubong.

Music is not all about sound; music is an art, and with it comes culture, diversity, creativity, talent, and spellbinding performances. All this and more can be found at the Rainforest World Music Festival 2011. In the words of a foreign journalist, the festival is "one of the most extraordinary festivals I have attended in terms of the camaraderie amongst the performers, the lakeside setting under Mount Santubong and the warm welcome of the hosts."
