FMFA 2014 Experience: Arrival & Day 1

Last March 12, we left for Kuala Lumpur to catch the Future Music Festival Asia 2014. It's a 3-day music festival (March 13-15) with the world's best DJs and artists such as Pharrell Williams, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Armin Van Buuren, Martin Garrix, etc. We bought tickets for the festival via Galactix Asia and it cost us around RM 348 or around Php 5,000.00.

We arrived around midnight and we headed to our hostel, which was just near Bukit Jalil Stadium, the festival venue. Finding our hostel was a disaster. But to cut the long story short, we tried searching for a new place, but after 3 hrs, we still ended on that same hostel. We're just thankful that we've met a very helpful taxi driver. And I would just like to commend him for being a responsible head of his family. He works as an employee at Petronas in the day and as a cab driver at night.

We took some rest and went out before lunch to explore KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Center). We just went around Suria, the mall under the Petronas Towers. We had photos taken at the Petronas Towers, had lunch, and headed back to the hotel to prepare for the first day of FMFA.

at the front side of the mall (lovin' my monopod haha)


After fixing up, we're off to the event grounds. We arrived quite late so we didn't catch the Adventure Club. It was R3HAB who was spinning when we came. The highlight of the night was when R3HAB guested Martin Garrix for a quick spin. He gave us a preview of what we should be excited about on day 3. The night was closed by Deadmau5. It was indeed a crazy FMFA Day 1. We've met a lot of fellow Filipinos from all over the world, and new foreign friends from different parts of the world.
