The next TWSL show will be held in Ipoh at Insider Space on 15 August, with performances from SOFT, Molly Dolly and Muck.

The winner will walk away with a professionally recorded single and an opportunity to perform for a live audience at the final TWSL event, together with the headliners of the final show. During the TWSL shows, Hotlink will also provide facilities for budding musicians with original material to record their submissions to TWRF.

Hotlink will be contributing a special cash prize of RM10,000 to the winner, RM3,000 to the first runner-up and RM2,000 to the second runner-up as funds to continue their efforts in developing their craft.

“We’re excited to be working with The Wknd on TWRF & TWSL to help re-energise the independent local music scene and discover new talents. Music and Hotlink has always gone hand in hand, and we are continuing to lead the way in finding and nurturing budding talents, first with Akademi Fantasia and now through this partnership with The Wknd. We look forward to listening to original submissions by up-and-coming musicians and finally seeing them hit the stage at the final TWSL gig. Also, keep a close eye as we will have more announcements in the local music space soon,” said Navin Manian, Maxis’ Head of Prepaid, Consumer Business.Customers also have a chance to win a pair of front row tickets to their preferred TWSL show, by just doing the following:
