The Livescape Group has announced a merger of the two-day celebration of Rockaway Malaysia MotoGP Weekend.

The music festival, initially set to take place throughout this weekend, will now receive avid rockers and headbangers on Saturday, October 29 at B Hillstand, Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpur.

The Livescape Group said the decision to merge both days of the festival into one was due to scheduling conflicts. “We have decided to merge the two-day festival to just a one-day event due to a scheduling and production conflict with one of the headlining acts,” Director of Events Rahul Kukreja explained. “However, this may well be a blessing in disguise as our fans ultimately benefit from this. With the merger of both shows, single-day ticket holders will now also be able to catch more international acts on a single billing.”

Single-day passes purchased for both Day 1 (Oct 29) and Day 2 (Oct 30) will be valid and honoured at the merged show. Refunds are available for Day 2 single ticket holders. Fans can contact and send inquiries to the Livescape Group at [email protected].
