Pesta Malam Indonesia 2 @ Kiara Equestrian Club

The Story Begins...

After the successful of its first installment, Fat Boys team brought us the second edition of Pesta Malam Indonesia, which showcases the best of the Indonesian music scene to our own backyard with the hope that it didn’t scare their Malaysian fans away.

The concert was opened by two finest local acts; Hujan and Meet Uncle Hussain. Unfortunately, not many people witness their performance as most of the goers came in late to catch the Indonesian acts. Hujan’s main man, Noh, abruptly left the stage and Ag took over his singing. Nobody knew what did happen.

Dewi-Dewi came up on stage and did a set of cover songs from Dewa and Rihanna. By watching their performance, I wondered myself “Why are they here?” I think they didn’t perform well and didn’t reach the standard to perform for a big outdoor event.

The rain started to pour down heavily; half the crowd rushed for shelter except for die hard groupies when Samsons took over the stage. There were thousands of them being over-excited, making human triangle, shouting hoo-haa along with their favorite band. Thus, they made the locals anxious to get nearer to the stage.

A fight broke off twice when Sheila on 7 (So7) performed “Sahabat Sejati” and the main man, Duta, had to halt their song to pacified the situation. It’s typical when it comes to Indonesian concert in Malaysia. Well, So7 did a great job in controlling their audience for every song.

Ungu faced some technical difficulties followed by the power outage on every booth after the half-hour break. The show had to halt again and the crowd started to throw things on stage. The emcee, Aleya, controlled the crowd professionally eventhough she got hit for a few times. The police began to chase the attackers and made the situation went a bit chaotic. The locals were terrified and they had to move very far away from the scene.

It didn’t stop the show. Peterpan came on stage for their 40 minutes set. Ariel has broke the local performing guideline by took off his shirt for their last song. Lastly, Slank came on stage and brought a different kind of energy to the crowd but only their groupie, Slankers, stayed on but the locals who were not a big fan, and walked straight to their cars.

The concert went on with such big Indonesian acts albeit many difficulties were faced from the audience up to the stage technical. While the Indonesians were having the time of their lives at the front row, the locals were much comfortable watching it from the screen at the back. Well they know how to party harder than us.
