KL Urbanism
Discover an often overlooked perspective of the inhabitants of Malaysia’s iconic city through a series of monochromatic photographs captured by freelance photographer, artist and writer Azul Adnan. KL Urbanism focuses on the lone individual interacting with KL’s ever-expanding urban landscape, displaying the silhouettes of individuals going about their daily lives in solitude.

Malaysia Tourism Centre (MaTiC), 109 Jalan Ampang, KL. Until Jul 21. See here for more info.


Featuring the franchise’s most diverse ensemble to date, INDICINELIVE! returns to klpac for a sixth instalment. The sketch comedy revue continues to dish out humorous parodies and sketches questioning our political, social and pop-cultural landscapes, offering a much-needed check-and balance through humorous jokes and satirical wit.

klpac, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Sentul, KL. Jul 18-Aug 4, 8.30pm. RM70. Buy tickets here.


Good Vibes Festival
Now in its sixth iteration, the home-grown music and lifestyle festival will feature a line-up of outstanding local and foreign acts on July 20 and 21, including headliners Joji, 6Lack and Yuna. The latter propelled to fame on the international music scene when her album Chapters was placed seventh on Billboard’s Critics’ Picks for Best R&B Album in 2016. In an effort to up the ante, the GVF grounds will be expanded into an adjacent field which will house the new-and-improved Electric Fields, to be transformed into the festival’s fully fledged third stage. Fronting the Electric Fields are Norwegian DJ Cashmere Cat and Australian DJ Anna Lunoe.


The Ranch, Gohtong Jaya, Genting Highlands. Jul 20-21. Tickets from RM360. See here to purchase.
