International music sensations The Smashing Pumpkins head a line-up that includes Modest Mouse, Ash and Japandroids for Malaysia's best music festival, Good Vibes, on Aug 17.
The Sepang International Kart Circuit in Selangor will be transformed into a lively outdoor catering to a regional audience with a love for music, art, fashion and food.
This is a celebration of great music, positivity, and creativity where festival-goers of all ages can wander a landscape dominated by three stages, art installations, fashion exhibits and a food village, from 4pm until late at night.
The three outdoor stages will emanate music for all appetites. The Blue stage atmosphere is laidback at first, showcasing the likes of Pastel Lite and The Impatient Sisters before morphing after sunset into the high-voltage sounds of They Will Kill Us All and Japandroids.
The Green stage will feature local and regional electronic music such as Twilight Actiongirl and Deer Society, all known to draw crowds to their feet.
The Red stage is the heart of the festival, providing a continuous pulse of good vibes from acts such as local darling LiyanaFizi, Kyoto Protocol, and the complex sounds of Monoloque, culminating in the highly-anticipated headlining performances of Smashing Pumpkins and Modest Mouse.
The evening will also offer retail therapy with the exclusive debut of Chic Yamada's festival capsule collection, as well as the designs of five local and five regional up-and-coming fashion labels. Chic Vibes will house a beauty bar complete with a host of pampering services.
Bringing an extra cultural twist, Malaysian artist NiniRamlan will be there to undertake the mammoth task of curating art installations. Also available will be GoodBites, a food village that will house a tantalising spread of favourite festival foods dished out by local artisans and entrepreneurs.
Organised by Future Sound Asia, Good Vibes Fest is expected to attract about 10,000 visitors, including 3,000 from Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
