With exhibitions, musical performances, film screenings, and talks, the 10-day Rainforest Fringe Festival is set to prove there’s more to Sarawak than just its longhouses and orangutans.
With its diverse indigenous culture, lush jungle and fascinating history, Sabah and Sarawak should be on every traveller’s wishlist.
Often overshadowed by its hipper sister Sabah, Sarawak is putting the spotlight on its rich artistic and creative traditions through the new Rainforest Fringe Festival.
The Rainforest Fringe Festival kicks off on Friday July 7 in Kuching, a new event which aims to consolidate Sarawak image as a centre for arts.
The recently held first edition of the Rainforest Fringe Festival helped give more cultural resonance to Sarawak’s longstanding – and most important – world music event, the Rainforest World Music Festival.
