Where the Arts Come Alive !
Kuala Lumpur Festival was initially conceived with the objective of branding Kuala Lumpur as a City of Arts, Culture and Heritage.
First launched on the 30th June 2006, the Kuala Lumpur Festival has since united Malaysians of all generations and races through the spirit of creativity and solidarity. A joint effort between the Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Ministry, Ministry of Tourism, Ministry of Information and the Ministry of Federal Territories (DBKL), the collaboration provides Malaysia’s arts, culture and heritage a platform for international exposure.
Now in its fourth year, Kuala Lumpur celebrates Malaysia’s rich arts, culture and heritage by hosting a unique and unforgettable experience for both locals and tourists alike.
Watch as the KL Fest 2009 unveils the festivity throughout Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley in this month long celebration. Catch the variety of performances and activities held at various landmark such as the Istana Budaya, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, the Central Market, Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower.
This July, witness how the arts and culture unite the older and younger generation in preserving the national heritage and development of the local creative industry.
