The Melaka Art & Performance Festival (MAPFest), the largest and only festival at a UNESCO World Heritage site, returns to Melaka for its fifth instalment from 22nd - 24th November 2013.

The site-specific festival has put Melaka on the world map since its inception, as it brings dazzling performances from across the globe. The festival attracts tens of thousands of international and local festival-goers to the historical site for three days of international quality performances.

 Held from 10am to 10pm daily in the vicinity of St. Paul’s Hill, the contemporary performing arts extravaganza features more than 50 local and international artistes from 10 countries in a variety of dance, visual art, film and music performances.
