Festival fun for dance music fans

WITH the weekend Future Music Festival Asia taking place today and tomorrow in Sepang, one could almost be led to expect the clubs to be quiet in KL, but there’s a vast number of music lovers out there not able to make it to Sepang so clubbing activities continue as normal in the main centres, including KLCC, its surroundings and Bukit Bintang areas.

Some may even be picking up steam in its own right, in the run-up to the upcoming F1.

Over in the Choons Awards stable, this is the last day for you to get your early decisions heard for the 18 or so categories up for nominations for your favourite bar/club/cub nights and more for 2012/2013.

The final nominees list will be announced in early April ready for online voting. The producer of the year award remains open for DJs and producers nationwide (and internationally) for submission of tracks until May 1.

Meanwhile, all DJ appearances previously scheduled at Bedroom club in Pavilion have been cancelled as the club management have announced they will undertake a new business direction, with the club to be open for private events and functions only.

For private bookings or more details, please contact Robert Santos at 016-201 8573.
