How to go to Good Vibes 2013 Located in the heart of the country’s Multimedia Super Corridor, the Sepang Circuit is accessible via air, rail and road. Limousines, shuttle services, and car rentals are available at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), which is only a 10-minute drive from the circuit. The circuit is also connected via major highways and expressways. From Kuala Lumpur (KL), take the North-South Highway towards the KLIA Interchange. It would take roughly 45 minutes to get to the circuit from KL. Use your Google maps or GPS so you won't get lost.
Driving to Sepang If you are driving, you can take any major highway heading to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Once you pay the toll, take the first left exit from the highway(To LCCT). A mosque will be on your left as a landmark. At the round-a-bout, go straight (12 o'clock). Take the first left exit after the first traffic light (about 8 km). Follow the signs to take you to the Festival entrance. You can park your car at the Sepang International Circuit car park for a fee of RM 10. Please lock your cars and do not leave any valuables in it.
Taking a Train to Sepang 1. KTM Commuter Train Take the KTM Commuter train from Seremban or Kuala Lumpur to Nilai and transfer to Sepang Circuit using MyTeksi or any other local taxi company. 2. Express Rail Link (ERL) Take the Express Rain Link Train from KL Sentral and transfer to Sepang Circuit using MyTeksi or any other taxi service. Note that you will need additional time for this so please go earlier to avoid rushing.
Taxi to Sepang As the organiser is working with a local taxi company, please download the MyTeksi app to get to the festival. To get home safely, please go to the MyTeksi stand at the festival and purchase your MyTeksi coupon from there. (Rates charged will be according to zones)
Bus to Sepang This is a tricky one but I have personally seen many use this cheapest mode of transport to get to the Sepang Circuit. You can grab the buses from KL Sentral which are going to LCCT, but you need to inform the dirver that you want to stop at the F1 Circuit. Make sure you put no luggage in the buses luggage compartment because he will not get down to open it for you. So hand carry all your stuff, and double check with the driver about stopping at the F1 road stop. Then quickly get down. Price is RM10 one way.
Many performances and live concerts have been going on here in Malaysia. More Concerts in Malaysia are being planned too. For music lovers, this is a once in a lifetime to catch the Smashing Pumpkins perform live here among the many other international and local bands. The best part, in a massive festival and for the hard core pumpkin fans, yes it is different now but then again, hey - Its the Smashing Pumpkins Live in Malaysia!
