DJ Run Fes­ti­val an­nounced for Myan­mar

The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse - MYO SATT myosatt@mm­times.com

AFUN run with a dif­fer­ence is com­ing to Yan­gon. Sin­ga­pore-based He­mus Pa­cific is bring­ing the DJ Run Fes­ti­val to Peo­ple’s Park on De­cem­ber 17. The DJ Run Fes­ti­val, as its name sug­gests, is helmed by live DJs spin­ning hits at ev­ery kilo­me­tre of the run, while par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to dress up, revel and dance the course away.

Some pro­ceeds from the event will be donated to the Race Against Trafficking, an an­nual event aimed at rais­ing aware­ness of hu­man trafficking in Myan­mar.

“There will be five dif­fer­ent zones in Peo­ple’s Park and one DJ will be per­form­ing in each zone. So you can ac­tu­ally en­joy the event by walk­ing or run­ning. At the end, ev­ery­body will reach the main stage and all the DJs will per­form there. I think the to­tal length of the run will be about 5 kilo­me­tres,” said Thomas Tan, gen­eral man­ager of He­mus Pa­cific.

Since the event is de­signed to pro­mote health, al­co­hol and to­bacco are banned.

Five DJs will per­form at the event, in­clud­ing Leng Yein from Malaysia.

“I was the of­fi­cial DJ at the first DJ Run Fes­ti­val in Malaysia. This will be my sec­ond time at a fes­ti­val, and after­ward I’ll also per­form in Thai­land and Viet­nam,” she said.

The iden­tity of the other four DJs will be re­vealed on the fes­ti­val’s Face­book page.

“This is one of the ex­cit­ing things about the DJ Run. I’m sure all the DJs will be top DJs” said Thomas Tan.

Tick­ets are avail­able now at mmtick­ets.com at K15,000 (early bird) and K18,000, which in­cludes mer­chan­dise such as a glow-in-thedark T-shirt, a foam glow stick, a draw­string bag and a medal which also glows in the dark.
