The Malaysia Urban Retreat Festival (“MURFEST”) is an event held annually in the beloved homegrown soil of Malaysia, celebrating the best of wellness, yoga, world music and dance.
November 2014 witnessed the maiden festival at the Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside and Marina Putrajaya and carried on for 3 days, boasting an array of talks and workshops, a Wellness and Healing Vendor Village with over 60 vendors showcasing health conscious products and goods. The grounds of the festival then turned into a celebration of music and dance as night beckons, highlighting the Urbanite concert – a spectacular line-up of world music for 2 nights with musical guests both local and international coming together for the love of community and celebration.
This year, MURFEST is back from 4th to 6th of September at the Hotel Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar. Bringing the outdoors into the indoors, this strategically located venue will be simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G for any Festival goer curious to see the turn-over of a Business Hotel into a colourful and inspiring festival ground.
