Life of the party: Superstar deejay and music producer Deadmau5 will be headlining the March 13 show at Future Music Festival Asia 2014.
THE return of Future Music Festival Asia (FMFA) next year is turning out to be a massive playground for trance and electronic dance music fans.
The festival’s third edition here is stretched to three days – March 13 to 15 – at Mines Wonderland in Seri Kembangan, Selangor.
For starters, fans can expect a party-starter treat on day one (March 13) with progressive house music producer Deadmau5 alongside special guests. On day two (March 14), Armin Van Buuren returns with his massive A State of Trance 650: New Horizons show. The previous instalment of ASOT saw nearly 30,000 fans making their way to Sepang to catch the superstar Dutch deejay in action.
On day three, the festival will be spread out to four separate stages. Fans can look forward to a diverse range of performers from various music genres.
The confirmed acts are American rapper Macklemore and his producer/collaborator Ryan Lewis, legendary hip hop group Wu Tang Clan (Method Man, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon are coming down), Swedish deejay/producer Eric Prydz, Grammy-award winning deejay Paul Van Dyk, English rapper Tinie Tempah, Canadian EDM duo Adventure Club, LA-based singer-songwriter Yuna, British electronic music group Rudimental, Goldfish + Blink, BATE, Dangerdisko featuring Datuk Sheila Majid, and more.
Though some may lament the absence of rock and pop acts, organisers Livescape Asia and Future Music Australia assure fans that more acts will be announced soon. –
