Pesta Malam Indonesia 3 – Indonesians were invading!
THE third installment of Pesta Malam Indonesia 3 (PMI3) was set on Saturday 10am, 20 June 2009. Stadium Bukit Jalil (Car Park A). Pesta Malam Indonesia 3 Everyone wanted tickets for this one! Showcasing the biggest acts from the south, Dewa 19, Gigi, Sheila On 7, Andra & The Backbone and Padi.. the combination of artists sent shock waves through the Malaysian music scene and drew protests from several artists who were unhappy that the Indonesians were invading.
The madness will most likely repeat itself with the third installment of Pesta Malam Indonesia, taking place away on the hard-hitting asphalt of the carpark at Stadium Bukit Jalil.
On the line-up are music heavyweights Padi, Sheila on 7, Andra & The Backbone, Gigi, Dewa and more. Padi has been on the music scene since 1997 and its members, Fadly, Piyu, Ari, Rindra and Yoyok have enjoyed tremendous success throughout the years. Their album, Sesuatu Yang Tertunda has chalked up over a million sales in the domestic market alone, making Padi one of the region’s most influential bands. Currently, Padi has a new album out entitled Tak Hanya Diam so look forward to hearing tracks performed live at this festival.
Another big Indonesian act to look out for is Andra & The Backbone, whose live shows are frequently praised. The side project of Andra, guitarist for Dewa who will also be playing at the fest, Andra & The Backbone invaded radio airwaves with monster hits like “Sempurna” and “Musnah.” Expect sing-alongs. Also expect body-surfing, mosh pits and a crowd with an up-for-anything attitude. This is one festival not for the faint-hearted and we totally love it for that!
