Tickets are currently available via the festival’s website here, with final release general admission tickets going at RM388 (excluding ticket fees) and VIP tickets at RM888 (which give access to a priority lane and VIP zone).
The Japanese-Australian singer-songwriter’s appearance in Malaysia will come a day after he performs at the PLUS63 Festival in Cebu, Philippines on February 18.
The upcoming Filipino festival at the SM Seaside Complex will see Joji share the stage with the likes of Kehlani, Paul Pablo, The Sundown, Sansette, DJ Short, and more.
Joji’s third studio album ‘Smithereens’, which dropped in early November, arrived after he released his hit ballad ‘Glimpse of Us’ in June, and ‘Yukon (Interlude)’ in August.
Other artists performing in Malaysia next year include Ne-Yo and Yura Yunita. As for music festivals, Peakstorm joins Escapism Festival in Selangor featuring Zico and Crush and NusaFest with Dipha Barus and Burgerkill, just to name a few.
