The Rainforest World Music Festival is a unique festival that brings together on the same stage renowned world musicians from all continents and indigenous musicians from the interiors of the mythical island of Borneo.

The 3-day festival is held at the Sarawak Cultural Village, a living museum where the traditional habitats of Sarawak's major ethnic groups have been lovingly reproduced. Set amid lush rainforest greenery at the foothills of jungle-clad Mount Santubong, and a stone's throw away from the beach resorts of the Santubong peninsula, the village provides the ideal venue for this festival that celebrates nature, ethnic music and the indigenous cultures of the world.

Its formula of afternoon informative workshops, ethno-musical lectures, jamming sessions and mini concerts, followed by evening performances on the main stage has proven to be a hit with the audience, a hodgepodge of locals, expatriates and a growing number of tourists from near and far.

I was at the 2005 festival and had a fabulous time. wonderful music, really well organised, great food, lots of good quality cheap food and accomodtion. Im planning to go go again this year. Strongly recomend it to anyone considering going.


2007 - I attended with my 'fling'. We had a great time listening to the music but we were more interested in getting it on. His wife found out so I'm not sure we'll be doing the 2008 festival!
