Malaysia longest creative festival was back to Kuala Lumpur from 5-21st May 2017, with “Rediscover KL” as its theme for this year, Urbanscapes brought a lot of exciting acts start from the local artist to international ones, such as Mew, Cigarette After Sex, and even the Grammy Award winner, Clean Bandit. Not just about the acts, we also didn’t want to miss the Urbanscapes 2017 visual art component and installation at Urbanscapes House.

What we love most is how it clearly showed one of the best feature of Kuala Lumpur, the complexity, yet rich mixture of different cultures and heritage.
