The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MUSIC -

THE sandy coast­line of Cher­at­ing in Kuan­tan, Pa­hang will host its first mu­sic fes­ti­val in April.

The Kuan­tan Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, fea­tur­ing an eclec­tic mix of acous­tic, blues, jazz and world mu­sic, will be held at Hol­i­day Villa Beach Re­sort & Spa Cher­at­ing on April 4 and 5, 2014.

Fes­ti­val di­rec­tors Atod Ham­dan and Erica Gil­bert be­lieve the lo­ca­tion will be a hit with beach lovers and mu­sic en­thu­si­asts.

“Imag­ine sea breeze gen­tly blow­ing through the gar­dens, sit­ting un­der the stars and the per­for­mances be­gin. It will be two nights of magic not to be for­got­ten,” said Atod in a press re­lease.

Gil­bert added: “It’s also very easy to get to now. It’s just 2 hours and 30 min­utes away from (cap­i­tal city) Kuala Lumpur.”

The event will see per­for­mances by T Bone Ska from Thai­land, TheArtofFu­sion from Ger­many and In­done­sia’s Rio Sidek Quar­tet.

Lo­cal acts like Ito & Pur­ple Haze, AkashA, Amir Yus­sof Acous­tic Project, Pal­adin, Faan and more are also part of the di­verse mu­si­cal line-up.

Fes­ti­val­go­ers also get the chance to check out a show­case fea­tur­ing as­pir­ing and young mu­si­cians at the Fringe Stage.

There will also be var­i­ous work­shops through­out the day to keep fes­ti­val­go­ers oc­cu­pied. Tick­ets are priced from RM78 and are avail­able for pur­chase at www.tick­et­
