For 24 days starting on 1 of July to 24 of July 2011, Bangunan Sultan Ibrahim that is located at Bukit Timbalan, Johor Bahru is going to be the home of 8th JB Arts Festival. You guys are cordially invited to the festival. Lets live the arts!
Their theme for 2011 is to go green which mean no cars are allowed inside the Bukit Timbalan but fret not, there are plenty of car parks surrounding the majestic building. This is the time to bring your family and friends to enjoy the exciting arts, sounds, light and movements the festival has to offer.
This year’s festival promises to be the most exciting yet. Highlights include a debut by re: mix sponsored by the Singapore Ministry of Information, Communication and the Arts. Join us in Empathy – a special program in remembrance of the Japan tsunami victims. There's also GEGO 2011 that will take place on 8th July 2011, an event for the youth made by the youth.
This year’s festival is as eclectic as anything! From classical to Indie to jazz. From dance to theatre to film. From Photo exhibitions to flea markets to skateboard racing. From choral singing to heritage race. From Michael Jackson moonwalk to 80’s retro music. From Chinese traditional orchestras to kompang in harmony. From zapin to bhangra…..and it goes on.
Gear up for eventful July, ladies and gentlemen.
