KUALA LUMPUR – The Melosaga Malaysia Street Dance and Music Festival, Malaysia’s first and largest, has announced the list of showcasing artists invited to perform at the inaugural event this January 13 to 15, 2023.

Co-presented by UNC Entertainment and Base Entertainment Asia, the festival is an essential street dance and music event for any festival goer. It will take place at the Mines International Exhibition & Convention Centre (MIECC), Kuala Lumpur.

Spanning over three days, Melosaga comprises three events that will provide an all-encompassing experience.

Visitors will be immersed in music and dance as well as street culture discovery through Escapism, the concert; Battlesaga, which comprises international and local dance competitions; and K-Dimension, a K-Culture Carnival with 100 carnival booths.


K-Dimension, the K-Culture component, will be held across all three days to showcase the magic of K-Culture and K-Pop.

The Phaze International, an international dance showcase competition, will take centre stage on the first day. K-Dimension wishes to emulate the success of its first season last year.

It managed to attract dancers from more than 25 countries to compete for a US$5,000 cash prize and the chance to perform on Escapism as the opening act.

Festivalgoers will also have a chance to join YG Audition for YG Entertainment. This is the K-pop mega label that is best known as the agency behind the successes of Blackpink and Big Bang.

Don’t miss the chance to witness YGX, the dance arm of YG Entertainment made up of two female choreographers, Yeo Jin and Jihyo. They are Blackpink’s backup dancers and from ‘Street Women Fighter’.

Moodok from ‘Street Man Fighter’ is also set to perform. At K-Dimension, participants can learn from artist choreographers from South Korea at the YGX Star Workshop.


Escapism is a street music festival that will be held on January 14. It features K-pop heavyweights Zico and Crush among the headliners who will be making their debut appearances in Malaysia.

Other acts are Shigga Shay, YGX, Dolla, ForceParkBois, DJ Raiden, 3P and many more who are no strangers to Malaysian music lovers.


The street dance component of the festival puts together an impressive mix of local and international dance competitions starting with the RF Jam Malaysia Qualifier Round. Winners from the 4v4 Breaking and 3v3 All-Style will win a sponsored trip to RF Jam 2023 in Vietnam.

On the same day, there will also be a SDACA Championship where international and national all-star dancers will compete to be the champion of Battlesaga.

UNC Entertainment founder Dylan Chyo said, “More than just the headliners, Melosaga is the first-of-its-kind street music and dance competition and carnival in Malaysia, which brings together an impressive line-up of regional performances, workshops and street culture elements, here at Kuala Lumpur.

“Developed as an alcohol-free event, it is suitable for young and old alike.”

Chantal Prudhomme, chief executive officer of Base Entertainment Asia added, “We are thrilled to be working with UNC Entertainment to present Melosaga, a music and dance festival which will connect entertainment with street culture by bringing established artists and emerging acts, both regional and local, under one roof.”
