Langkawi Live – One Earth Music Festival

The inaugural festival made its debut in 2011. Langkawi Live – One Earth Music Festival 2012 to be staged over the weekend of November 2nd and 3rd 2012 will include an exciting list of the region’s most exciting musicians. 

Malaysian jazz pianist Michael Veerapen will feature together with several other established and rising Malaysian stars including Reza Salleh, Liyana Fizi, Poova and Amir Yussof (Sabah) as well as Saxman Koh (Thailand), the Langkawi-assembled Panji Warisan and the Langkawi Love Band. 

The festival setting is the picturesque beachfront of the Frangipani Langkawi Resort & Spa with the music timed to start each evening just as the sun sets. The atmosphere will get a little livelier each evening with DJs on the beach after 11pm. 

In addition to the music the festival aims to promote Langkawi internationally as an eco-friendly holiday destination and to encourage the local community to keep the island clean and green. The festival’s eco-theme this year is the Rivers Project which is a programme to keep Langkawi’s rivers clean. Activities focussed on protecting the environment will be organised throughout the day.
