The Other Festival (#Otherfest) is a celebration of Ipoh Old Town’s history, food and arts that will take place over three weekends, from 22 Oct-8 Nov 2015. Themed ‘Mapping the City’, this inaugural festival focuses on a series of trails designed by popular personalities who are either Ipoh natives or have a connection to the city. The idea is to encourage festival goers to explore Old Town on foot and discover the inspiring tales that await behind the crumbling facades of heritage buildings.
Curated by Kakiseni in collaboration with the folks of Ipoh Old Town – business owners, landlords and other stakeholders – the programme is a lively mix of performances, guided tours, movie screenings, food trails, creative forums, exhibitions, bazaars, music, zines and various art forms.
