Guinness Arthur’s Day Returns!

Guinness Arthur’s Day, a celebration of the remarkable legacy of Arthur Guinness, returns to Malaysian shores yet again this 2012! Themed “A celebration Made of More”, which is inspired by Arthur Guinness’ bold legacies, Guinness fans and music lovers this year will have 3 unique music events that will take place simultaneously, citywide on 28 September 2012. Where exactly those three places are is yet to be announced, which only adds to the suspense for this year’s celebrations

To name a few, globally renowned Asian music superstar Justin Lo from Hong Kong, Nidji from Indonesia, our very own Malaysian Jazz & r’n’b superstar, Ning Baizura will take centre stage at this year’s celebrations.

A special addition to the celebration this year, in tribute to Arthur’s philanthropic legacies, is the launch of the Arthur Guinness Fund in Malaysia in partnership with British Council, Malaysia. The Arthur Guinness Fund is a global initiative that was set up to further the philanthropic legacy of Arthur Guinness and support social entrepreneurs around the world.

The celebrations will also see the return of the Guinness Thursday Music Parties, which takes place every Thursday in selected outlets across the Klang Valley. As always, for all our Guinness fans, there will be special promotions on their favourite black brew. Continuing from the success of last year’s Thursday Talent Search, and in an effort to give aspiring Malaysian artists a global platform to promote their music, 6 up and coming local music talents will be battling it out for the once in a lifetime opportunity to be the opening act for Creed at the Arthur’s Day concert in Indonesia this year!

As with previous years, the winner of the Thursday Talent Search will be the band that gets the most votes from its fans. Fans can vote for their favourite bands by voting on-ground at Thursday Music Parties, or by visiting the Guinness Youtube channel and clicking ‘Like’. The band with the most votes and ‘Likes’ will go on to be the winner and open for Creed in Indonesia!

They’ll be battling it out at the Thursday Music Parties at the following venues:-
