The 3rd Independent Youth Festival [FEYST10 Malaysia]

Hello there! It's that time of year again... the 3rd independent youth festival codenamed FEYST hits town with over 10 multiple events in various locations around Selangor and Petaling Jaya!

What is Indie Youth Fest? 
Inspired by our regular Doppelganger Open Mic gigs, Festival Directors Jasmine Low & Nikki Yeo conceptualised FEYST10 as a celebration and a culmination of the year's events - consider it like a wrap party. Our main focus as usual is music + video games. Our milestone since 2008:

** Since 2008, FEYST events have hosted over 350 independent musicians, gamers, bloggers, filmmakers. In 2008, the festival was sponsored by Intel, DIS Technology, Steel Series, Manli Graphics, Sendi Mutiara Multimedia and held over 3 days at 1Utama High Street. In 2009, the festival was sponsored by DiGi Telecommunications and was held over 5 days at 1Utama High Street and LG Rainforest as well as The Star's Studio V.

FEYST events have brought many Malaysian talents to international festivals:
**--5 DotA pro-gamers Team Kingsurf to ESWC in San Jose, USA 2008
