The 3rd Pyongyang International Arts Festival arrives like a punch to the face! It has arrived three times!
There is no need to mark June 5th on your calendars—it has already been marked for you!
The 3rd Pyongyang International Arts Festival features a hensem dictator, hot chicks performing mass games, MK-0 Dong tiger missiles, anti-American love, Korean diplomats, celebrities, ChatRoulette, karaoke, DMZ table, and more!

Through the medium of dance, video, performance art, music, we hope to share with the people of Malaysia, glorious works of art from the international second world and demonstrate a refreshingly new direction in the art of satire and parody, which KL has yet to experience.

Don’t miss The Wonderboys, a brand new band that will be performing for the last time, before its members pursue lucrative solo careers. Join The Best Art Show in the Univers, CIPLAK, Mark Teh, Fahmi Fadzil, Ray Langenbach, Wong Siew Jye, Daniel Chong, Jun Kit, Sharon Chin and other state-approved artists in a beautiful and stirring tribute to the Motherland. After curfew, let the fond sounds of Flica wash over you, accompanied by a video installation by Fairuz Sulaiman.

The 3rd Pyongyang International Arts Festival will illegitimately occupy a derelict town house in the heart of KL. It will also illegitimately occupy your heart. Attendance is required. Admission is free.
