Missed the dazzling bright lights and sick beats of last year’s MTV World Stage Malaysia? Fret not (heh), because MTV World Stage Malaysia is back for the seventh-year running!
With MTV VJs Alan and Hanli reprising their roles as hosts, the highly anticipated outdoor event is set to take place once again at Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon on Saturday, 12 September 2015. The event will feature a line-up with five acts to be announced in the coming weeks including two international acts, two regional acts and one #MostWantedMalaysia act who will all join the MTV stage.
Over the last six years, MTV World Stage Malaysia has welcomed international award-winning international artists onto its stage including Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Thirty Seconds to Mars.
The show has also featured popular K-pop acts such as EXO, Boys Republic and Jay Park while showcasing local Malaysia acts like Yuna, Joe Flizzow and Mizz Nina.
To boot, MTV is set to launch a new Asia multi-platform campaign MTV Breaks ignited by Xpax, to give talented millennials across Asia a chance to kick-start a career in the creative industries. Through life-changing opportunities and a mentorship stint, MTV Breaks by Xpax is offering big ‘breaks’ to three talented, young creatives who will get the opportunity for a stint as a photographer, multimedia content creator or motion graphics designer at this year’s event. Industry experts and the MTV team will mentor selected candidates who will also have their work featured on various MTV platforms.
In another offering to turn the spotlight on fans, MTV is presenting yet another opportunity for up and coming Malaysian acts to showcase their talents as Malaysia’s #MostWanted Act at MTV World Stage Malaysia. Local artists or bands keen to participate can submit their interest (worldstage.mtvasia.com) from 13 – 26 July.
From 30 July – 14 August, fans can show their support by hashtagging their preferred local band or artist they want to see perform at MTV World Stage Malaysia 2015. Based on fans’ votes and other performance criteria, Malaysia’s chosen #MostWanted Act will perform as the opening act at the show.
