Sultan Sharafuddin to grace Rainforest World Music Festival

KUCHING, June 19 — Selangor’s Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah will grace the Rainforest World Music Festival (RMWF) from June 28 to 30 at the Sarawak Cultural Village here.

Also set to grace the event is Perak’s Sultan Nazrin Shah.

Sarawak Deputy Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts Minister Datuk Sebastian Ting Chiew Yew said the Sarawak Protocol, Ceremonial and Event Management Unit, in collaboration with police and other security agencies, will be fully prepared for the royals’ presence.

“Security has consistently been a top priority at all our events. With esteemed attendees this year, security measures will be heightened to ensure comprehensive inspections on both the venue and festival-goers,” he told reporters after the RWMF 2024 Sponsors Appreciation Day event today.

Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) chief executive officer Sharzede Askor said festival-goers have been advised to use the shuttle bus service to promote sustainability and reduce carbon emissions.

“The shuttle bus service is convenient and accessible, and ticket holders can board at Plaza Merdeka and Riverside Majestic Hotel for free by presenting their tickets. The bus will drop passengers directly at the Sarawak Cultural Village,” she said.
