This is one really cool event, so cool that I actually did 2 pre-event writeups for it last week, one to promote Future Music Festival Asia, and the other to talk about their pre-event party. (Future Music Festival Asia Pre-Party Vertigo Club, Future Music Festival Asia 2012) Well, last weekend the party happened at Sepang and I was fortunate to obtain 2 first class passes to catch the performances in person.

So there we were, reaching the venue at Sepang International Circuit around 4pm, just in time to catch one of the bigger international artist performance, Flo Rida! This was the first time Future Music Festival Asia was held in Malaysia, and they made it really huge with not one but four music stages erected all around the area. The stages were named Future, Las Venus, Flamingo and Gnome respectively.

After paying RM10 for parking, which was the norm for Sepang Circuit, we immediately headed for the largest stage (Future Stage) to catch Flo Rida in action. Now I'm not exactly the party type of person, but nearly all of his songs were familiar, and I loved it. Judging from the crowd's response by screaming and grooving to the beat, I can safely say Flo Rida truly rocked the stage that evening.

Rocking to crowd favourites like “Low”, “In The Ayer”, “Sugar”, “Right Round”, “Club Can’t Handle Me”, and more, Flo Rida literally had the crowd eating out of their hands. Even though the afternoon heat was a killer, the crowd stood their spots and rocked on. Heck, sweat will not hinder us from enjoying ourselves!

|An I was here moment|
There were several "first class" tents erected around the venue for us to rest while waiting for the next big act. It was good that these tents were air-conditioned, but I was disappointed there were no free flow. Even water was charged exorbitantly here, not very cool. It was good however to catch up with some of my fellow bloggers who attended the Future Music Festival Asia as well.

It was unfortunate that there was another event that night, St Patrick's Day street party which I wanted to attend as well, hence I could not stay until the end of the night. But it was an awesome experience though, one which I had not experience ever since DJ Tiesto came to town (Heineken Thirst Tiesto 2011 Sepang). That was only 1 act, we had numerous artists and DJs from the international, regional and local scene that night at Future Music Festival Asia 2012.

Future Music Festival Asia 2012 was one really huge non-stop party going on for 12 hours straight. (2pm - 2am) A record 30000 folks turned up to enjoy the music there that night, and I am still excited from the prospect that I was there to experience it all.
