The Sarawak Tourism Board is selling ‘Corporate Seats’ for the Rainforest World Music Festival. Seats priced at RM90 per person are now available. The Corporate Seat offers you to enjoy the whole festival evening show from an elevated platform with perfect view of both the tree-stage and the jungle stage (main stage). This strategic tree-level view will ensure you not to miss any of the action happening on, or in front of the stage. The seating is in plain view of everything that’s happening in the cultural village and comes complete with spacious seating, fans for those hot nights in the tropics and of course a roof to stay dry just in case the night starts showering.  

The Corporate Seating area is also perfect for bigger parties or company outings. This festival is a not-to-be-missed occasion in the heart of the Borneo Jungle. This is where people regardless of their ethnicity, cultural backgrounds and music interests come together for three magical days for a fun filled, wholesome festival experience with a country fair atmosphere amidst lush greenery.
