With all the fun Cyberjaya Multimedia Festival brought in last year, it’s no wonder they’re coming back better than ever. The weekend affair happening 11 & 12 August hosted by SouthEast Asia’s Kre8tif! Conference and Content Festival, will definitely reignite the creative sparks in Cyberjaya by bringing together content creators, entrepreneurs, technologists, DIY practitioners and artists.
Just like before, it’ll be happening at familiar grounds of Centrus Mall in CBD Perdana and of course there will be bomb-ass local music, animation, film screenings, creative conferences, tech exhibitions and marketplaces. Get our creative juices flowing or just chill and enjoy the atmosphere.
Here’s all you need to know about what’s in store for #CMF18:
1. Live Music
Headlining CMF18’s music stage on Saturday are Ipoh rock outfit Bittersweet – back in the limelight after a brief hiatus last year, R&B songstress NJWA – armed with an eclectic neo-soul style that shines on her new EP, and psychedelic rock quintet Ramayan. Concluding the dynamic line-up on the first day are the eccentric and theatrical Iqbal M, Sarawak’s R&B upstart Sasha Ningkan, Payola Records’ experimental indie unit Skit and Johor Bahru’s dream pop duo Juno and Hanna.
There will also be Make It Happen’s Music Edition exhibition that highlights the creative process behind music-related products like albums, album artwork, music videos, and live shows.
2. Do-It-Yourself Creative Economy Conference
If you’re a local artist who needs more insights on how to unleash your creativity to its fullest potential, then this one is for you.
