THE 2nd edition of Asia Music Festival this coming October 3 and 4 will be enlivened by the presence of the Malaysian band, Mad August.
The band consists of four members who have their own musical skills and are ready to amaze the audience with their live performance for the first time in Miri, Sarawak.
“Mad” is actually an abbreviation of a philosophical slogan – “Make A Difference”. It pledges that everyone can make a difference in life, even with the least of strength and the words “August” which in numeric eight refers to success, opportunity and strength.
Mad August plays Modern Rock and Emo Rock music. They create an icon via music as a medium to manifest their ideology. This icon is a leader, an image and a symbol of encouragement about living life to its fullness with courage.
Asia Music Festival promises an extraordinary weekend of fun, music and more, against the stunning backdrop of the venue, Eastwood Valley Golf & Country Club. A mixture of live music will be featured throughout the two-day event and will include a mix-genre of music from regional, national and local talents.
Other than Mad August, the confirmed line-up of performers include SoulMate (India), Ras Muhamad (Indonesia), Pancake80 (Philippines), Pisco (Taiwan), Retrospect (Thailand), Masia One (Singapore) and Salammusik (Malaysia).
