The 3-day 2014 Rainforest World Music Festival takes place June 20-22 in the Sarawak Cultural Village in Borneo, Malaysia. 

The 2013 festival featured concerts from 10 a.m. to midnight each day, with 21 groups performing, including local folk singing groups and groups from Jamaica, Korea, China, Australia and Japan. Throughout the festival, talks were given and workshops were offered in singing, dance, ethnomusicology and music — everything from gamelan playing to Irish dance.

In 2013, a one-day all-event adult pass cost MYR120 (near $37) and a 3-day pass, MYR330 ($101). Children 3-12 paid MYR60 ($19) for a one-day pass or MYR160 ($50) for a 3-day pass.
