Folk Music Festival was held for the first time in 2014, and was followed by the second show in 2016. Both earned huge success, so without surprise Folk Music Festival was held for the 3rd time at Kusuma Argo Wisata, Batu, in July 15th. Similiar to its predecessors, the 3rd Folk Music Festival was enlivened by many inspiring indie folk musicians from local or national scale, there were AriReda, Monita Tahalea, Payung Teduh, Stars and Rabbit, and many more.
Choosing Kusuma Argo Wisata as the venue is bold, and at the same time, outstanding. It’s very rare that a music concert was held that far away from the busy downtown of Malang, but this bold choice resulted in an expansive outdoor venue with gorgeous city light scenery in the background, and comfy green grass to seat on. It was such different vibes we felt that night, with low-height stage, breezy cold night, all seating-in-the-grass audience, and heartfelt music.
