KL’s back alleys have long been a hive of activity – from wet markets to hidden food courts and other unique hallmarks, the modernisation of the city has seen us lose a little bit of this culture. However, thanks to Think City, the city-making organisation behind the revitalisation of George Town, KL’s famous Madras Lane is about to get a new lease on life thanks to Lorong Fest!

The lorong used to house the iconic Madras Theatre which was burnt down by a fire

This festival will transform the Madras Lane wet market and open-air car park into a space to celebrate arts and culture – along with callbacks to the famous Madras Theatre. This is where KL-ites used to go to watch Chinese action moves and old westerns in the 60’s and 70’s before it burnt down in 1979.

Fourty years later, the area is a popular hawker food area

The wet market and its adjoining hawker food centre remained a popular spot till today, and Lorong Fest wants to highlight Madras Lane to today’s KL-ites by reintroducing us to its history.

What you can expect there:

  • Live performances from Ryot Jones and The Maha Jeffery Band
