Curtin students to stage Wet Electric 2.0 for charity
MIRI: Many say music is medicine for the soul. It unites people regardless of age or race, and its reach in helping the less fortunate is greater than any other form of social events. A great example is Live Aid.
Curtin students unleashed this potent force with Wet Electric 1.0 early this year. It was an event organised by ‘students for students’, and its overwhelming success motivated the organiser to hold Version 2.0 next month for charity.
Featuring the musical talent of local and foreign students, Wet Electric 1.0 was an eye-opener. Held at a beach, it provided an experience that was markedly different from that of clubs and pubs. With innovative stage design, laser lights and novelty foam machines at play, it gave guests a whole new level of entertainment.
“To say the least, it was a super success, and the pictures that were later posted on social media erased any doubts people had about the event.
“For those who missed it for whatever reason, fear not! Wet Electric is back, and it will be bigger and better,” said the event’s spokesperson Ramsha Sidiqqi.
Wet Electric 2.0 will be held at Kelab Rekreasi Petroliam (KRP) in Lutong on Sept 14, 2013.
“It will be launched at the official launch party this Friday (Aug 23).”
Sidiqqi said the launch party would feature local talent such as Dopeheroes, Doomed and DJ Mos Boss.
Wet Electric 2.0 will feature both new and old musical artistes such as DJ Ramsey Westwood (Astro Spin Master winner, MOS London, Armada Night Opener), DJ Asym (former Zouk Singapore, Wet Electric), and DJ Loon from Brunei (Wet Electric). Sidiqqi said Wet Electric 2.0 is for charity.
“We felt it was time to give back to the community, and what better way than with an event that will not only be supremely entertaining.
“It really will be great. We are not only thinking of providing leisure for our peers, but also performing a civic duty along with it.”
Ramsha said proceeds from Wet Electric 2.0 will go to Miri Methodist Children’s Home, an institution that is doing great work for less fortunate children.
