After two highly successful editions in 2023, the Kuala Lumpur Warehouse Project (KLWH) returns with its third edition on the 26th & 27th of January 2024, with what is expected to be an even bigger and more prominent suite of international acts. While the inaugural first edition saw around 4,000 partygoers raving about the event at the Bukit Kiara Indoor Arena with the high-octane second edition setting fire to the incredible Mega Star Arena with close to 5000 revelers, the two-day third edition is expected to more than double the number of attendees, hence the move to the larger capacity KL Base Sungei Besi in Bandar Malaysia, this 26th & 27th January 2024. The highly successful and well-received electronic dance music festival series will once again be organized by Leo Global Link Sdn Bhd and promises an even more elaborate and much more thrilling one than the previous editions. They will be striving hard to provide a unique and unforgettable experience for all attendees and are confident that KLWP 3.0 should exceed your expectations, once again.
In his welcome address, KLWP Project Director Faizal Baba spoke about the major differences between the first two editions and their latest incarnation.
“KLWP 3.0 will not only be held outdoors but at a larger venue to ensure a more festival-like atmosphere. It is expected to draw at least 10,000 revelers over the two days. It will feature not one but two stages – the Main Stage which will feature the 8 international acts and 6 local acts and the supplementary Orizon Stage, which will feature a total of 13 local acts,” expressed Faizal.
“We not only intend to make KLWP a musically engaging festival, we aim to make it a visually invigorating experience for all attendees. That’s why we will be featuring for the first time in the world, the newly launched 120 Watt laser which can project up to 5km. Three of these new lasers will accompany sixteen 40 Watt & four 15 Watt lasers to create a spectacular never-seen-before light show at KLWP 3.0,” beamed Faizal.
“Also presenting their live Psychedelic show featuring a combination of four genres – Rawstyle, Uptempo , Hard Tech , Raw Kick – for the very first time in Asia will be the incredible Sub Zero Project. We are also pleased to present for the very first time, the very much in demand Russian social media sensations Zapravka, performing for the very first time outside of their home country,” enlightened a delighted Faizal.
“We are privileged once again to have some of the best deejay producers in the world gracing our shores at an even bigger and more festival-like venue, and to continue entertaining Malaysian and regional party-goers in a safe and conducive environment,” chirped in Leo Global Link’s CEO Dato’ Muthalagan enthusiastically.

Get to know the artists that will perform @ KLWP Festival 2024
Dutch deejay’s Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst came together to form W&W in 2007, and haven’t looked back since. They began their careers by producing trance music, before venturing into big room house and other forms of EDM. After producing trance for five years, W&W founded their record label called Mainstage Music, and became active in the big room house scene. This was followed by the release of their commercial breakthrough “Bigfoot” in 2014. In 2017, they returned to their original trance style with the NWYR (pronounced “new year”) project. Their record label Mainstage changed its name to Rave Culture at the end of 2018, focusing on a wider variety of genres.
They have since transcended the boundaries of genres and traversed the world with their globally acclaimed music and iconic live performances, becoming one of the most sought-after duos the world of electronic music has to offer. Known for their energetic music and energetic festival sets, W&W have been dominating dance floors and festivals across the globe for years on end. Voted #18 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll in 2022, and kept their spot in the Top 20 for the last 9 years. They continually perform at leading festivals all over the globe like Tomorrowland, Ultra, EDC, Creamfields, and more, as well as headlining their tours worldwide; even breaking the world record in China playing 24 shows in 27 days.
W&W are known for combining the uplifting and melodic elements of Trance with the raw intensity of Electro and Progressive House, creating a unique and rebellious sound that is undoubtedly their own.
W&W continue to prove their status as innovators and taste-makers in the scene under their alias NWYR, where they release blistering productions and live sets from their trance-inspired roots. They also curate music for their community-driven label, Rave Culture, which includes hosting their bi-weekly radio show on various broadcasting stations, which has gained them over 300,000 listeners per show with extensive coverage.
The duo were the first-ever act to perform an XR augmented reality livestream back in 2020. The success of this stream allowed for the growth of their concept Rave Culture Live, an episodic event taking place at their custom-designed AI venue known as Club Mythic. Reaching hundreds of thousands of fans when events were shut down during the pandemic, W&W created a platform to showcase their skills in DJing and productions for everyone to see.
Clocking in over 60 shows a year, and racking up over 10 million followers across social media platforms, there is no doubt that W&W are pioneers in the main stage electronic dance music scene. Now shifting into a new phase with a tidal wave of fresh productions and incinerating live sets, the rise of their Rave Culture label and the impact of their NWYR alias, W&W are transcending boundaries in their own, signature style and cementing their place as one of dance music’s top acts.
