In partnership with Revive Arcade Festival
The inaugural Revive Arcade Festival has unveiled its stacked line-up of Southeast Asian talent, including Pamungkas, Zamaera and many more.
Organised by Tala Records Asia, the all-ages event will be held virtually on the weekend of December 4-5 and will feature a total of 27 acts from five Southeast Asian countries.
Besides Pamungkas and Zamaera, the six headliners include rapper Aman RA, ska veterans Gerhana Skacinta, rock band Oh Chentaku, retro rock band Margatsawa and singer Aizat Amdan (as AI.Z).
Also performing are Indonesia’s Diskoria and Reality Club, Filipino R&B singer August Wahh and Thailand’s Valentina Ploy. Find the full poster and line-up below.
Revive Arcade Festival promises a uniquely Malaysian setting that recreates the country’s landmarks with 2D pixel art. Iconic locations attendees will be able to find in the festival’s virtual world include the KLCC twin towers, Batu Caves, Langkawi’s eagle statue and Melaka’s Jonker street – famous spots any tourist to Malaysia would have on their list.
Revive Arcade Festival will open its server to the public five days prior to the event (November 29), allowing users to explore to their hearts’ content before the festivities kick off proper.
Attendees will also be able to dress up and customise their own virtual avatars, explore various virtual booths at the festival, patronise merchants and even play classic arcade mini-games on top of traditional games like congkak and guli.
