One Earth Music Festival 2011 Langkawi is set to take place on November 11-12 which is a Saturday and Sunday. If you are up for something different in the music scene, this is the perfect chance to catch some interesting performers play for a cause where the main objective is to promote Langkawi internationally as an Eco-friendly holiday destination and to encourage the local community to keep Langkawi Island clean and green.
According to organiser Patrick Chen, "The idea for this music festival was born over drinks late one evening at the boat bar on the beach of the resort. A group of us, made up of like minds, some of whom already call Langkawi home, and others who plan to, we lamented, while listening to the hotel band, that Langkawi did not have a music festival, and wouldn't it be great to have one?" and thus came this festival which will be the first of its kind here.
