The Ministry of Communications and Digital (KKD) will tighten the entry requirements for foreign artists to perform concerts in Malaysia.

Minister Fahmi Fadzil shared that this will include a re-examining guarantees from the organisers for foreign artists and their performances here.

According to a report by Buletin TV3, KKD will work with the Committee for Foreign Films and Performances of Foreign Artists (JK-PUSPAL) to conduct research and screenings in terms of artists’ behaviour so that incidents like what happened during British rock band, The 1975’s, do not happen again.
