DiverseCity’s KL International Arts Festival is back!

To be launched on 31 August 2017 by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, the festival is scheduled to take place throughout September 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, showcasing acclaimed and up-and-coming artistes from Malaysia and around the world in celebration of the arts through music, dance, theatre, visual arts and literature.

Various exciting performances and forums will take place in different venues around Kuala Lumpur including the Auditorium DBKL, Panggung Bandaraya, Nu Sentral, and the Damansara Performing Arts Center, to name a few, and the Festival will include both ticketed and free events.


A highlight of the music performances is the open-air ASEAN and DBKL 50th anniversary concert at Panggung Anniversari, Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur featuring local and ASEAN artistes who will perform hits across the decades set to new arrangements amidst lush park setting. Dance enthusiasts can look forward to the 14-member all-male Argentinian powerhouse, Che Malambo, whose percussive dance and music spectacle is sure to thrill audiences.

Visitors interested in visual arts will have the privilege of getting up close with one of the key drivers of art development in Malaysia – Yeoh Jin Leng – in a special Retrospective exhibition.

Returning to our shores due to popular demand is playwright Wolfe Bowart who will present Letter’s End this year. On the same note, children will certainly enjoy hilarious and interactive performance entitled Bon Voyage right on the platform of Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTM).
