being bigger next year. The festival will be held for two days next year and this is
to accommodate the request from festival goers.
Since introducing the festival in 2014, Planet Conventions and Events Sdn Bhd
had been organizing the event for one day. However, as the festival entered into
it’s forth year, Miri Country Music Fest will be held for two days from February 25
to 26 next year.
The decision was because of the overwhelming respond this year. The festival
which was held on February 27 this year recorded a total of 2,740 festival goers,
an increased of 30 per cent as compared to last year. Last year’s crowd was at
2,100. Next year Planet Conventions and Events is targeting to attract more than
3,500 festival goers to the event.

The venue will remain at Parkcity Everly Hotel Miri, which is also the official hotel
and the main sponsor for the event.
To cater for the two days and increasing festival goers number, the organizer will
also be bringing in more international bands to entertain the crowd. Among
those already short listed include from USA, Australia, Germany, Indonesia and
Brunei Darussalam. There will also be more local Malaysian bands taking the
centre stage as well.
The festival concept also remain as in previous years, starting with the festival
bazaar and followed with music workshop before the concert begin in theevening. On Sunday, the concert will begin earlier so that the finale can end
earlier as well. This is in consideration for the festival goers who have to work
the next day.
Planet Conventions and Events is also planning to include more activities in the
program to further enhance the festival goers’ experience at the event. This will
include more stalls offering wide variety of food and beverages, arts and crafts, apparels and souvenirs and to organize competitions like burger eating contest,
arm wrestling and many more.
There is also plan to hold a Sunday-cook- out session on the second day of the
festival, to encourage more visitors especially those with young children to spend
the afternoon at the festival.
Next year’s event will have something for everyone, be they country music fans
or anyone wanting to chill out with family and friends.
