Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) among 25 Top Best International Festivals.


 Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) has been voted for the second consecutive year as one of the Top 25 Best International Festivals by renowned world music magazine Songlines.


The Rainforest World Music Festival(link) is a unique festival that brings together on the same stage renowned world musicians from all continents and indigenous musicians from the interiors of the mythical island of Borneo.
This most recent award adds yet another feather to its cap and elevates its status in the international music scene as a festival which has put Sarawak on the world tourism map.

According to the editorial team at Songlines, 

“This year’s selection of festivals is a broad representation of the quality and scope of music festivals around the world, from city-based events to ones in remote locations such as the RWMF in Sarawak and the festival in the Desert in Mali. The selection represents some personal favourites of Songlinesstaff and contributors as we feel that what these festivals are doing complements what we’re interested in at Songlines.”

The full list of all 25 international festivals will be published in the June issue of Songlines.
