Rainforest World Music Festival 2024


In the heart of Borneo, amidst lush rainforests, the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) promises a mesmerizing three-day celebration of music and nature. Organized by the Sarawak Tourism Board, this annual event captivates music enthusiasts and adventurers alike.

Imagine sitting on a moss-covered log as twilight falls, surrounded by fireflies and the sounds of rustling leaves and melodious birdsong, with the primal beat of drums resonating through the canopy.
