Tiger Asian Music Festival Is Coming Back In 2012!

Asian music fans, get ready to soak in the ultimate urban street themed music celebration, as the Tiger Asian Music Festival (Tiger AMF) 2012 is set to bring the house down on this coming 14th of April 2012 at Sunway Surf Beach..

The Tiger AMF is back for the second year where the 2011 festival was a blast, with almost 20-artistes from Malaysia, Korea, China, Thailand, Singapore, and Hong Kong, and Taiwan, performing for 12-hours at the MIECC..Check out my Tiger Asian Music Festival 2011 post HERE..

In 2012, although the artistes line-up are not as many as 2011, they are not your average artistes and are more focused with the street-themed music festival..

Straight from the street to the beach, urban music lovers can expect a night filled with electrifying and high-octane collaborative performances by some of Asia’s most talented artists, while immersing themselves in the unique street-themed festivities brought alive by Tiger..

This year we have..


*A-Lin*

A-Lin has achieved rapid commercial success across the Mandarin-speaking world since her debut in 2006..Her natural talent has led some to call her the next A-Mei..

Like A-Lin, A-Mei is a Taiwanese aborigine of Amis descent, and arguably the most popular singer from Taiwan..A-Lin herself has admitted that A-Mei has greatly influenced her and frequently covers A-Mei’s songs when she performs..


*Chang Chen-Yue*

Rock singer Chang Chen-Yue first became popular thanks to his 1998 hit song ‘Ai Wo Bie Zou’..But he’s not just a singer: this multi-talented Taiwanese entertainer is also a songwriter, guitarist, dance DJ and actor..

The Tiger Asian Music Festival will reunite him with rapper MC Hotdog, with whom he has previously collaborated on two hip-hop singles..

Tiger Asian Music Festival 2011 @ Mines International Exhibition Convention Centre (MIECC)

Tiger Beer presented the biggest Asian music festival ever that has happened in Malaysia..

On 30th April 2011, the Asian Music Festival 2011 was held at the Mines International Exhibition Convention Centre (MIECC) and had pulled a strong 20,000 crowd to the event!

Thanks to GAB and G2, I was able to cover and enjoy the 12-hour concert standing right in front of the stage, standing very close to the artistes when they walked upfront the stage..

Long story short, let’s head to the main agenda of the day..

Local English band Rosevelt did the opening for Asian Music Festival 2011..Then Malaysian Will Ng came on stage for the second act..

I was right on time for 24 Herbs (Yah Sei Mei), the high-prolific rap group (after LMF) from Hong Kong was on stage to rock the house down..


*24 Herbs from Hong Kong*

24 Herbs gave a good performance with 6 songs, including Do or Die, Wonderland featuring ManHand, and ended with “Hu Ge”..


*Local Chinese rock band, dayDream*

dayDream was quite okay, performed 6 songs including covering 2 songs, one of MayDay’s and another Linkin Park’s “In The End”..


*Suki Low featuring Shawn Lee and Dennis Lau*

Suki Low made her appearance a moment to be remembered with a cover of Katy Perry’s “Firework”..She has grown so much since the One In A Million and she can definitely go further..

She continued to do an unplugged cover of “Born This Way” (Lady Gaga) on the keyboard featuring beatboxer Shawn Lee and violinist Dennis Lau..


*Namcha from Thailand*

Next up was Namcha from Thailand..Although I hardly understood Thai except for “sawadee kap”, her performance was pretty energetic and the tune and rhythm of the songs were quite easy to blend in, fun-happy-go-lucky type..

I really had fun with her songs and eventually followed her on Twitter (@namcha_tea) right there and then :P

Lots of photos ahead! Get ready to load!
