Urbanscapes is one of the longest-running creative arts festivals in Malaysia. Since its inception 16 years ago, the aim of Urbanscapes has always been to bring together Malaysian creative communities from the fields of music, the arts, design, film and other creative disciplines. The festival has grown leaps and bounds to become internationally known and attended.

Urbanscapes 2018 is a citywide celebration – it makes a return to its roots, the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The festival is spread across three weekends (two and a half weeks) in various parts of the city to take advantage of the glorious cityscape and complement it with some creative shenanigans.

Urbanscapes Hotel at 2 Hang Kasturi, Medan Pasar, River of Life, Chin Woo Stadium, Lorong Hang Kasturi, Chinatown, The Zhongshan Building, The Bee Publika, and KL Live at Life Centre. More locations will be announced soon.

Urbanscapes 2018 will be doing it differently. Instead of a weekend, we are bringing you three. There will be several activities, shows and exhibitions with different operating hours. Stay tuned on our website and social media platforms for more updates on when and where!

The festival is open to all ages. If you have any doubts or concerns, ask us on Facebook and Instagram.

Yes, you can bring in your small digital cameras, Lomo cameras, etc. to all our programmes. However, no sound or video recorders and professional cameras of any kind will be allowed into a show without prior approval. Do take note that no on-stage photography is allowed without authority from the organiser.

We are a rain-or-shine event, so the show must go on even when if it rains! Think carefully about what to bring. Ponchos are waterproof, light and packable. Hats and sunblock protect from the sun; umbrellas from both the sun and the rain. You get what we mean.

Food and drink purchases are venue specific. While some venues sell and/or allow food and drink inside, others do not. That said, we are a citywide festival so be sure to explore KL and all its amazing food options before or after the events!

We love pets as much as anyone. In fact, we love them so much we ask that you do not bring your furry friends to the festival.

No drugs, no weapons, no fireworks, and no sharp objects allowed. Let’s keep the festival safe for everyone, okay?
