Guinness Arthur's Day 2012 Media Launch

Time really flies, I still remember vividly last year's Guinness Arthur's Day media launch, with the music, food, and Guinness Draught. There I was again on the 23rd of August to see this year's launching over at Studio Lounge, Tropicana City Mall. Going there after work to unwind with lots of Guinness seemed like a pretty good idea.

Themed "A Celebration Made Of More", inspired by Arthur Guinness' bold legacies, Guinness fans and music lovers this year will have 3 unique music events taking place simultaneously, citywide on 28th September 2012. As per my understanding, it will be more than just a music celebration this year as they give music lovers an evening of live music spanning over 5 hours in 3 separate locations around Kuala Lumpur.

"We have selected some of the biggest global Asian music icons in the region to be part of the Arthur's Day music events this year." said Yap Swee Leng, Marketing Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad at the launch of the celebrations at Studio Lounge, Tropicana City Mall.

To name a few, globally renowned Justin Lo from Hong Kong, Nidji from Indonesia, and our very own Malaysian Jazz & R&B superstar, Ning Baizura will take centre stage at this year's celebrations.

A special addition to the celebration this year, in tribute to Arthur's philanthropic legacies, is the launch of the Arthur Guinness Fund in Malaysia in partnership with British Council, Malaysia. More than RM200000 will be channeled to the program which aims to support local Malaysian social entrepreneurs with the passion for the Malaysia community to deliver measurable, transformational change in our local communities.

So there we were to witness the launch with some food and even got to watch some of the local acts perform. For one, I have always liked the band Once Upon A Time There Was A Sausaged Named Bob which I've seen perform on various occasions and they were pretty good.

The Arthur's Day 2012 celebration this year will be a month long celebration with promotions on the black brew in more than 11000 outlets nationwide starting from 23rd August 2012 till the 30th of September 2012. The celebrations will also see the return of the Guinness arThursday Music Parties, which take place every Thursday in selected outlets across the Klang Valley.
