The Cold Sun Bursts And Plays Over KL In March!

FINALLY! Something music fans can look forward to in KUALA LUMPUR this year!

Remember Sunburst Festival last year at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian Club, with The Roots, Incubus, John Legend, George Clinton and er... Hujan?

Well, it's coming back, and Reta and I have been getting really excited about the prospective bands that MAY (yes, MAY) come to the festival. Already, there have been some really big names being bandied around, and some really strange ones as well.

Reta's been the more semangat one, doing research and praying to the music gods to see what the lineup might look like. Of course, this has more to do with her hoping that the lineup sucks so she won't feel bad about potentially missing the festival due to her holiday, but oh well... hehehe.

Anyway, names that have been bandied around lately include Main Sejuk, Peronda Salji, Penghulu Kaiser, Pembunuh, Tiga Sebelas, and er... Nickelback... so we're hoping that at least ONE of those acts (ok, except Nickelback) will be able to make it here.

Anyhoo, we're still planning to do an Sunburst All-Day Groupie Outing, from the very first act to the very last act... So who's with us???

And just in case the Music Gods are listening, and since the organisers started a Facebook thread asking us to choose what artistes we would like to see here, here are MY picks for potential festival headliners...
