MIRI COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL WILL BE BACK BIGGER AND BETTER ON 2016
After an encouraging response towards the first two Miri Country Music Fest, the event will be back bigger and better next year. Country music fans can expect another exciting experience at the third edition of the festival which will be held on February 27 next year.
Next year’s festival will showcase country music bands from Nashville in USA, Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur and Miri and these bands will serenade festival goers with their rendition of rock, pop, contemporary, bluegrass and folk country tunes.
Organized by Planet Conventions and Events Sdn Bhd, the festival will be held at Parkcity Everly Hotel Miri.
The one-day event will showcase music workshops, line dance session, bazaar and music concert. The day’s program will begin from 2pm onward with the opening of the bazaar and followed with the music workshops. The line dance session will be held from 4pm while the concert will start from 5.30pm onward.
Line dance enthusiasts are expected to get together to share and exchange dance technique and steps at the line dance sessions.
Planet Conventions and Events will once again invite other event organizers to use the festival as a venue to promote their upcoming events. The idea was introduced this year and it was well received with Rurum Kelabit utilizing the opportunity to promote its Pesta Nukenen (Bario Food Fair).
At the music workshop, festival goers can learn how to sing country tunes and play musical instruments. The workshops proved to be quite popular among the audience as that provide them the opportunity to get up-close with the band members.
Tickets to the festival are priced at RM80 for adult and RM40 for a child between three to 12 years old. The ticket for adult is inclusive of one beer while the child ticket is with one soft drink.
Ticket sales begin on June 16 and up until September 16, the ticket is offered at an early bird rate. During early bird rate the tickets are sold at RM60 for adult and RM30 for child and tickets are inclusive of a drink.
