Buka Panggung Showcase

(19th Jan 2019 @ Bentley Music Auditorium)

We will start 2019 with a bang, bringing you our first music showcase of the year, Buka Panggung, which will be held at the Bentley Music Auditorium in Mutiara Damansara. We have a full day of activities planned, including a music marketplace and workshops, as well as other activities for attendees to enjoy. We will end the day with live music performances from pioneering Malaysian acts and a headline appearance by Indonesian indie-folk act Silampukau.


Why are we doing this?

We are doing this to contribute to our music community, by documenting and promoting artists from Malaysia and Southeast Asia. We feature the emerging and undiscovered, alongside the diverse talent that this region has to offer.

Fikri Fadzil founded The Wknd in 2008 and has been the driving force behind it for the past 10 years. He has formed a passionate core team made up of music advocates and creative professionals, all dedicated to the aim of elevating the Malaysian and Southeast Asian music experience.


We need your help

We have been around for 10 years, and we want to stick around for at least another 10. We want to build an even bigger platform to better showcase emerging artists in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, and the Buka Panggung showcase is going to be the first step. We want to invite you to join the movement and to help us achieve this ambition. And it all starts with your support for the Buka Panggung Showcase.
