Funk Ekspres

We’re throwing a cross-border party at 8Lido in Johor Bahru. If a party with music from Pushin’On with Aidan on percussion, an artist market and fantastic food and drinks at a great laid-back venue sounds like fun, read on or check out the facebook event page.

The party starts at 3 and goes late. It’s a family friendly event with no cover charge. If you’re coming from Singapore and choose to stay the night, the following day you can have breakfast at the hotel or head to 8 Lido for a delicious brunch between 10am-2pm before heading back.


We have great deals on rooms at M-Suites Hotel and you can book by sending your full name, passport and d.o.b to the address below. Give them your choice of room and mention the password “Sideshow” for discount.
