On your mark, get set and rock-away! Rockaway Festival is back for the third time in Kuala Lumpur, bigger, better and edgier than ever! So get your rock on for TM presents Rockaway Festival 2012 brought to you by Livescape Asia.

This year’s inaugural festival is set to take place at the Helipad located in Sepang International Circuit on 20th October 2012. The date is perfectly timed as it coincides with the Moto GP race weekend. Rockaway this year officially collaborates with SIC organisers of Moto GP, a first venture for both companies.

This year’s offering includes legendary metal masters led by the incomparable Max Cavalera, Soulfly, punk phenomenon, MxPx All Stars and metalcore sensation, Unearth.

On the local forefront, Malaysia’s rock scene heavyweights, Hujan, Love Me Butch and Massacre Conspiracy return with tons of new material to showcase. Joining them are the highly popular Bunkface, I, Revival, The Padangs, Go Gerila, and Twilight Actiongirl.

The list of performers does not end here. Rockaway Festival has more surprises to be revealed in September.
