Some of the world’s finest contemporary artistes will be making their way down to Malaysia for the first time this year for Soulfest Asia 2015, an extension of Australia’s only neo-soul, jazz, and hip hop festival.

What is Soulfest?

Soulfest Asia 2015


It’s an amazing urban music festival which debuted in Australia and New Zealand last year in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Auckland. With Aloe Blacc, Common, Mos Def, and D’Angelo as headliners, it comes as no surprise that its first appearance saw tens of thousands of music lovers come together peacefully to celebrate their passion for soul and hip hop.

Earlier, we announced the entourage of top-class artistes that will be headlining at Soulfest Asia this year. Malaysia will see the likes of Mary J Blige, Omarion, Jhene Aiko, as well as local acts Joe Flizzow, Sona One, DeFam, and many more.
