US based The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus is the main headline of the coming Sunbear Festival 2022 which will be held in Kuching this coming December 2022.

In case you don’t know The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus’s “Face Down” is their biggest hit and one of my personal favourites, with songs like “False Pretense” and “Your Guardian Angel” also being equally popular among music lovers.

Anyway, the two day event which will be happening from 9 – 10 December 2022, will also shift their venue from the MBKS compound to the Sarawak Cultural Village, as they are now likely expecting an ever bigger crowd to the festival.
