With the highly publicised Peakstorm Festival 2023 drawing near this 19 February, Malaysian music fans’ anticipation is at an all-time high as they look forward to welcoming the international pop star Joji into Malaysian shores.

That being said, as with music festivals of any scale, this one did not come without bumps in the road during its organisation. Ever since its announcement late last year, Peakstorm Festival 2023 has had its fair share of naysayers questioning the legitimacy of its event.

Many netizens took to social media to spread rumours that since it is a music festival, Joji’s set will be too short for the liking of his fans and will take up no more than 30 minutes of the entire event. This is a common structure of most music festivals to ensure that the headliner can accommodate the performances of all the other artists on the bill.

Scam 5 Joji Set

Worse still, some Malaysians have accused the event of being a scam due to the assumption that Joji will only perform for half an hour. They’ve also cited the organiser changing their poster design and their ticketing website constantly crashing (which is actually due to the overload of fans attempting to purchase tickets) as their reasons for thinking the event was a hoax.

Scam 3 Scam 4

Some of the fans have even taken to contacting the event’s partners such as Sunway Lagoon and Sunway Resort to confirm the legitimacy of this show (which they did).


So for clarification, we here at WOB reached out to a representative from Peaky, the organiser behind Peakstorm Festival 2023 Presents Joji Live in KL. The event organiser had this to say: “This [rumour] is of course false.”

“Joji’s set [at Peakstorm Festival] is not 30 minutes but 90 minutes – longer than some of his [usual] performances.”

The organisers at Peaky have acknowledged these rumours and they even publicly responded to the accusations with the following Instagram post. (Nice use of the Will He pun, by the way! 😉)

And the icing on the cake is that Joji himself reposted the Peakstorm Festival flyer on his @sushitrash Instagram account, complete with a link to purchase tickets! Now, that’s as legit as it gets, kan?


When asked about how they feel regarding these accusations, Peaky said, “We’ve definitely had negative connotations as the new boys in the block getting bashed,” they said.

“But we are grateful that we managed to proceed and prove to the Malaysians that Peakstorm is a customer-oriented company and we’re here to stay for the long haul.”

The Peaky team and Sunway Lagoon staff on-site to make preparations for Peakstorm Festival 2023.

So to clarify once again,

  1. Peakstorm Festival 2023 Presents Joji Live in KL is not a scam and the organisers have been working very hard to deliver the best music festival they can give to Malaysian fans!
  2. Joji’s set will be 90 minutes long instead of 30 minutes. So festival-goers will be able to enjoy a full-on Joji experience for one and a half hours!
