[Upcoming Event + Coverage] Press Conference of Akustika I Of DFP Seni Fest 2014

DFP Seni Fest 2014 Returns At Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS!!!


Kuala Lumpur, September 2014 – Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP) is proud to present the DFP Seni Fest 2014 in September. This is the fifth year for DFP Seni Fest to be held and it is offering more & more exciting showcases that feature some of our country’s prominent artistic talents!

A few days ago, our team from wljack.com & loong-updates.blogspot.com were given a chance to take part in a press conference of Akustika I of DFP Seni Fest 2014!

In the previous festivals, DFP and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) have presented a variety of music genres and collaborated with renowned artists, painters, ensembles and traditional art groups. The festival stays true to its objective this year in promoting and nurturing local talents and music whilst adopting s slightly different approach to make it a unique and special happening.

Festival Commencing This September! Promising Lineups Of Events!
The festival will be starting on 16th September 2014 and will end on 21 September 2014. During this period, there will be events happening that include two unplugged concerts, one MPO concert and an exhibition throughout the week.


Akustika! Unplugged Concert Featuring Newbie as well as Prestigious Artistes!
The unplugged concerts are themed Akustika and will be featuring a great range of local artistes, from the “newbie” ones to the established ones. This wide range of artistes is surely able to catch the attention of the audiences from different categories of age group.  

In this concert, the performers will be displaying their brilliant musicianship which consists of a variety of music genres; ranging from ‘indie’ music, rock, pop and R&B to jazz.

Press Conference of Akustika I!
Last Thursday, we media members have had a press conference session with Mr Carl Selvarajah (Director, Dewan Filharmonik Petronas), Andy Flop PoppyDiandraMan Kidal and Alex Subryn.  We get to know more regarding of what to expect from the concert of Akustika I.





Mr Carl mentioned, “I think the most important is, the local artistes having that platform, to stand on DFP stage, the superior acoustic stage of the hall, to display their showmanship and their blend of music.” He hopes that the fans can come and support their favourite artistes in a different atmosphere in DFP.


On the other hand, all of the artistes present at the press conference were happy that they were being selected as the performers for the concert. This is the first time for most of them to perform in DFP and they are looking forward to create some magical moments on that prestigious stage!

The festival allows the cross genre music to stand on the same stage. It is a definitely a move-out-of-the-box move by DFP. It is also a great opportunity for the local artistes to stand on top stage.




Another good news about the DFP Seni Fest is, there will be a Festival Pass priced at RM 120 for all three concerts. So, all the music lovers should check out the festival!
