Three-day event expected to attract some 85,000 fans, defying the haze that's enveloped the city.

The unhealthy reading on the Air Pollutant Index did little to faze party-goers at Future Music Festival Asia 2014 last night.

The event dubbed as the biggest music festival in Southeast Asia kicked off its three-day party yesterday at Bukit Jalil National Stadium showgrounds.

Despite the worsening haze, day one of the event attracted thousands of fans. The event which started at 4pm featured performances by superstar DJ Deadmau5 alongside Adventure Club, R3hab and Will Sparks.

In light of the recent missing MH370 flight, a 12.8m-wide message wall has been set up for visitors to leave their hopeful thoughts and prayers.

Day two of the festival continues today with Dutch deejay Armin Van Buuren presenting his A State of Trance: 650 New Horizons Show.

The festival will end tomorrow with performances by headliners Pharrell Williams, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Yuna, as well as a long list of others.

The event boasting over 70 performers is expected to attract some 85,000 festivalgoers from across the region. Future Music Festival Asia 2014 is organised by Livescape Asia and Future Entertainment Australia with the support of Malaysia Major Events.
