Smashing time: Local act OJ Law performing at the Good Vibes music festival in Sepang.
SEPANG: A blackout on stage failed to dampen the Good Vibes music festival held here, with a pop band from Northern Ireland rocking away in the dark.
The lights went out just two minutes after the Ash band began their performance at about 8pm yesterday, but the trio went on and entertained the crowd.
Held at the Sepang International Kart Circuit, the music festival saw international bands such as Smashing Pumpkins, Modest Mouse and Japandroids sharing the scene with local talents such as The Impatient Sisters, They Will Kill Us All, Liyana Fizi, Kyoto Protocol, Goldfish, Monoloque, Pesawat and OJ Law, among others.
The performances, which went on till midnight, were held on three colour-coded Red, Blue and Green stages.
It was American alternative rock band Smashing Pumpkins which got the crowd really going on the Red stage, considered to be the focal point of the music fest, along with American Indie rock band, Modest Mouse.
The thousands in the crowd included people from Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.
The event was organised by Future Sound Asia (FSA), one of Malaysia’s leading music experience companies.
Incepted in 2001, the firm has produced and organised events featuring musicians, DJs and creative artists from all over the world.
The festival was supported by the Tourism and Culture Ministry and Malaysia Major Events, a division of the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB).
