RWMF 2021 Virtual Experience

The Rainforest World Music Festival Virtual Experience or RWMF 2021 will happen this year, but not the regular way we've seen the festival being held.

Sarawak Tourism Board has made sure that fans of this unique festival can get ‘Entranced, Liberated, Immersed’ from the comforts of their own home with RWMF 2021.

With Covid19 disrupting much of tourism, entertainment and lifestyle since March 2020, the entire world is undergoing a reform that has made many people think out of the box, and this virtual experience is one of them.

The concept for RWMF2021 will highlight a unique musical showcase featuring a retrospective of past RWMF performances and new pre-recorded sessions with homegrown acts.

If you are a Malay reader or in Indonesia, a friend of mine wrote an article about the RWMF 2021 Virtual Experience on the Pontianak Post, and you can read it in Bahasa.

For the fans and others interested in this year's Rainforest World Music Festival 2021, you can now just register on the official website to experience this virtually.

Because of the Covid 19 pandemic worldwide in 2020, the RWMF2020 was cancelled and brought forward. However, the pandemic is still not going anywhere; hence the event was made digital.

Therefore, this event will be a stepping stone to creating much hype and awareness for the next big event: the Rainforest World Music Festival 2021 or RWMF2022.
