This past weekend Malaysian hardcore label Freshtown Records celebrated their 5 year anniversary with an awesome event called Knocked Out Festival. Today they’ve released a wrap-up video and there are even two fullset live videos with some heavy hitters of the Malaysian hardcore scene streaming further below.
Freshtown Records were kind enough to send in the following info:
“Knocked Out Festival is a special celebration of our fifth anniversary and was also our first time trying out a new venue called Bsync Productions located here in the city center of Kuala Lumpur. Spacious outdoor spaces with a few F&B stalls and the venue could fit 200 people maximum with the current constraints from the authorities. We were supposed to have a total of 9 bands but 3 couldn’t join because members of the bands caught the big C. Luckily we had some acts who were able to step in.
As for the show, it started at 3 and ended at 11 and we were pretty happy with the number of people who showed. We released our first-ever jersey and then sold out of them. It was just great to see everyone have such a good time!”
The vocalist of Krusty added, “Knocked Out Fest 2022 was absolutely sick! I was so very fucking excited to play and be a part of this show. This is just the beginning! We have more sick hardcore shows planned for the rest of this year since Malaysia has started lifting restrictions and learning to live with COVID instead. Our hope is just to keep organizing more shows for both ourselves as a band but for the label as well and of course for the entire Malaysian community!”
