Future Music Festival Asia is set to return in 2014 for its biggest year yet, moving to a brand new location in Kuala Lumpur to accommodate for a bigger crowd.
Now in its third year, the festival, which has so far attracted over 100,000 fans, will be held at the iconic Bukit Jalil Stadium Showgrounds.
Playing host to the dance music festival over three days, the festival will bring fans from all over the region together for a long weekend of trance, dubstep, electro house, hip hop, pop, and much more across the showgrounds’ multiple stages.
Originating in Australia in 2006, FMFA expanded to Malaysia in 2012 in partnership with local promoters Livescape Asia. Growing year on year since headliners The Chemical Brothers inaugurated the festival in KL, this year’s move to the much larger site and the addition of an extra day are a mark of its growth in the region.
Iqbal Ameer, Director of Livescape Asia, says, “Future Music Festival 2014 has grown to incredible heights. The evolution of the festival and the magnitude of it is a vision that has become a reality. We are just as excited as the fans, and this has all been made possible with the partnerships and support from some of the best brands in the industry.”
He adds that that they aim to bring in 85,000 music fans from around the world to the festival this year, and promises that this year’s is its “biggest line-up to date,” with the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Deadmau5 and Pharrell Williams set to headline.
They will be joined by hip-hop royalty, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan, Swedish DJ and producer Eric Prydz and Grammy favourite’s Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
