DJ Roundhead to play post-festival shows during Asia Music Festival
KUCHING: The Asia Music Festival will be featuring a DJ for the first time this year by adding the Malaysian famous DJ Roundhead into the programme.
DJ Roundhead will be playing at the post-festival late show on both Friday and Saturday night, Oct 3 – 4. He will also be playing a huge array of famous dance music during a break between each bands both nights.
With at least 20 years’ experience, DJ Roundhead was once crowned as the ‘Malaysia DJ Champion’ three years in a row when he entered the Malaysian DJ Championship competition from 1995-1997.
When he was in high school, he would work part-time jobs during the weekend just to blow it all away on CDs and records. That made him the “go-to-guy” when it came to house parties from high school all the way to college.
Roundhead would bring his own player and set up his own mini console and rock the crowd at the party. Only after college he join a company during the ’90s called Clubworld Entertainment that supplied DJs to entertainment outlets around Malaysia, where then only he started his professional career.
One of his best moments is representing Malaysia in the Rotterdam Love Parade in the Netherlands for a crowd of 10,000 strong on a 34-wheel trailer while proudly flying the Malaysian flag in front of his console. He played in Melbourne, Australia for a year before returning to Malaysia and is currently attached to TraxxFM in Kuala Lumpur.
Asia Music Festival now in its second year will bring an eclectic mix of live music for one mind-blowing weekend in Miri, Sarawak.
The inaugural festival last year saw incredible performances from headliners from Asian region as far as India, Thailand and Korea. With the main goal to develop the brand of Asia Music Festival to be an iconic music festival of mixed genre in the Asian Region, the festival has recorded around 3000 music fans attending the first edition of the festival last year.
Asia Music Festival will also incorporate a range of Asian food as well as a tattoo exhibition so there will be something for everyone. The festival will start at 5pm daily with a tattoo exhibition as well as food and village mart. Stage performance will begin at 7:30pm until midnight, followed by the DJ set with DJ Roundhead until 2am.
