FEYST’12 Independent Youth Festival ignites the spirit of volunteerism via music and the arts
Kuala Lumpur, Dec 15, 2012 – 500 volunteers, musicians, artists and youth celebrate the spirit of volunteerism at FEYST’12 Independent Youth Festival today at Publika in Solaris Dutamas, Mont Kiara.
Launched in 2008, the Malaysian homegrown festival, FEYST: Independent Youth Festival provides an essential creative platform for youth to express, showcase and share their talents. This year, the all-day concert will benefit Mercy Malaysia and aims to raise awareness and engage youth in cause-related events. This fifth installation by marketing communication agency Go International Group Sdn Bhd encourages young talents to play a part in the fundraising by showcasing their music, art or any other skills like beat boxing or dance.
“As keen supporters of the independent music industry since 2002, we have been organizing monthly community events since 2002. We created FEYST as a creative platform, to bring people together in an open space and encourage networking amongst the creative groups. We believe that by providing room for face-to-face interaction, collaborations can happen and as a result, a bright future for a passionate and creative Malaysia,” said Jasmine Low, Managing Director of Go International Group.
The all day event will feature Oh Chentaku, Shh…Diam!, Fazz, Amrita Soon (pictured), Abstrak Hingga Ke Bulan, Doppelganger Acoustic Stage hosted by Ray Cheong, a special appearance by Star Wars characters and a multi-disciplinary event – Numinous, hosted by Sheena Baharuddin, which will feature poetry, Capoiera, spoken word performances, short film screening and live acoustic acts. A Charity Fashion Bazaar by Mercy Malaysia brings dozens of desirable fashion items up for grabs. In addition, The BIG Group will sponsor hot dogs and cranberry coolers and all proceeds will go towards Mercy Malaysia as well!
