The Sarawak Tourism Board announced that ‘Corporate Seats’ are now available for the 2012 edition of the Rainforest World Music Festival. Festivalgoers who are tired of standing will be able to purchase seats priced at RM90 per person.
The Corporate Seat offers the opportunity to experience the whole festival evening show from an elevated platform with perfect view of both the tree-stage and the jungle stage (main stage).
The seating is in plain view of everything that’s happening in the Sarawak cultural village and comes complete with spacious seating, fans for those hot nights in the tropics and of course a roof to stay dry just in case the night starts showering.
Artists scheduled to perform this year include HATA (Korea/Malaysia/Turkey/Taiwan), Mamadou Diabate (Mali/ Burkina Faso), Danyel Waro (Reunion Islands), Kanda Bongo Man (UK/Congo), Khusugtun (Mongolia), La Zikabilo (France), Le Trio Joubran (Palestine), Oreka TX (Spain), Raiz De Cafezal (Brazil), String Sisters (Scotland/Ireland/Sweden/Norway/USA), Zee Avi (Malaysia/USA), Rhythm of Malaysia (Malaysia), Samuel Das & Prakash (Malaysia), Diplomats of Drums (Malaysia), Sarawak Band (Sarawak) and The Music of Sarawak (Sarawak).
