Fans of reggae music, get your groove on and head to Tanjung Tualang on September 9 and 10 for the first ever International Reggae Festival organised exclusively by People Of Remarkable Talent (PORT), Tourism Perak and Malaysia International Reggae Society.
The two-day music festival will not only feature local bands such as Balok People, Poe & The Stoners, Rasta Syndicate and more, but also international groups such as Clifftones (Sweden), Pie In The Sky (Australia), Made In Made (Indonesia), Meshwar (Egypt) and Jeck Pipil & Peacepipe from Philippines.
“We want to cater to the needs of every music lover. PORT has held a few concerts for underground and rock fans and now it is the time to enjoy some good reggae vibe,” said Zamari Haji Muhyi, the manager for PORT.
Visitors will not only get to enjoy and indulge in the music, they will also get the chance to learn a thing or two about the genre, thanks to the workshop held during the festival. The team also wants to promote a drug-free music festival, due to the misconception between reggae and drug usage.
“We want to promote a healthier way to enjoy music. I hope to see not only fans of reggae but everyone who loves music,” said Poe from Poe & The Stoners.
The concert will be held at ‘The Last Dredge’ a.k.a TT5 Dredge at Tanjung Tualang and performance will begin on September 9, from 8pm till 11pm. A special music workshop will be held the next day at 3pm and a later music show will continue at 8pm.
