Force of Nature: Yogyakarta Quake Aid 2006
On Saturday, May 27 2006, an earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale hit the province of Yogyakarta on the Java Island of Indonesia. With over 35,000 people injured and over 300,000 homes destroyed, the estimated cost of rebuilding has been put at RM 2 Billion. Early media attention ensured that Malaysians responded well over the first few days of the tragedy. However, good as that initial response was, there still remains much to do. To help the people of Yogyakarta fully recover from this natural disaster and achieve prosperity and independence once again, The Force of Nature Aid Foundation (FON) has developed a compelling event to unite in support of them through the FON – Yogyakarta Quake Aid 2006. The event will feature 3 stages offering some of the best of Malaysian and Indonesian entertainment, a variety of carnival attractions and an exclusive V.I.P. Lounge The Main Ticket stage will feature live popular music artists and bands including Kris Dayanti, Melly Goslow, Ning, Sheila Majid, Dayang Nurfaizah, Pop Shuvit, LO, Disagree, Padi, Anuar Zain and more. A DJ pavilion to excite the youth and dance music enthusiasts featuring the likes of DJ Gabriel, The Works, Stylustiks, DJ Winky, DJ Romi, internationally acclaimed DJ Cheapshot and more. A Comedy Theatre stage adds laughter with stand-up comedy by the big names of the Malaysian comedy scene including Instant Café, Harith Iskandar, Scenario, Afdlin Shauki, Jit Murad and more. A day-long Family Carnival to attract every level of society with fun and games from paintball, foosball to PlayStation 2 booths and giant bouncing castles, even a hot-air balloon! As Malaysians, we love our food so there will be plenty of that! Details: Saturday, 19 August 2006 Bukit Kiara Equestrian Golf and Country Club (Polo field) Carnival, Music and Comedy Festival start from 5.00pm till Late.
