DJ Run Festival announced for Myanmar
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.
