This 19th of November will mark Yonder Music’s first year in Malaysia, giving its users free access to over 15 million commercial-free songs on-demand to download, play and share. Yonder Music also prides itself in creating, and rewarding, its users with unforgettable unique music experiences that have become synonymous with the Yonder Music name. In Malaysia, Yonder Music launched exclusively for Celcom FIRSTTM and Xpax customers.
A great big shout out to all our 400,000 users who made it possible
This past year has been a musical whirlwind for Yonder Music in Malaysia. From international flyaways to live performances, Yonder Music always puts its users at the forefront and aims to bring the online to offline to enrich users’ music lifestyle.
“Yonder Music launched in a garage in Kuala Lumpur (as all the best start-ups and bands do), and we said we’d be Hear Forever®, and 12 months and 400,000 users later, we have a lot to thank Malaysians for!” said Adam Kidron, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Yonder Music.
When the music service launched, Yonder Music flew 50 lucky users on an all expenses paid trip to watch superstar musician Bruno Mars perform live in Las Vegas. Throughout the year, Yonder Music also sent loyal and active users to watch Madonna live in Singapore, and Adele live in the city of love, Paris. These are the types of unique music experiences that Yonder Music wants to perpetuate for its users.
The service also launched its Yonder Music Live Series in April 2016 with the money-can’t-buy world-class live concert “Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza & Friends” at Stadium Negara. (If you missed it, don’t fret! Astro will be broadcasting the concert on Astro Ria on the 11th of December) The Yonder Music Live Series was born out of Yonder Music’s desire to thank their users for their unwavering support. A total of 5,000 people attended the concert with the star-studded line up. In the second installation of the series, Yonder Music brought the award-winning Indonesian dangdut singer Cita Citata to perform at three public concerts in Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru in May 2016 that were attended by a total of 13,000 people.
According to Mr. Adam Kidron, CEO Yonder Music, “2016 was an amazing year for Yonder here in Malaysia with Celcom, which started a day early with the “Take A Trip To Mars,” flyaway, which sent 50 Yonderers to Vegas to see Bruno Mars play in New Years Eve, and is ending with an even bigger bang with the broadcast of the now legendary Siti & Friends concert on Astro, and the release of the incredible (exclusive) “Memories” duet performed by Whitney Houston & Dato Siti Nurhaliza.
I am even more excited about what’s coming in 2017 – Yonder 2.0, which elevates and simplifies user experience (which is what we care about most) beyond any previous expectations (and any other music service), and introduces Snap Karaoke as a new user behavior! To instigate Snap Karaoke we’re launching a huge Snap Karaoke contest across 5-countries featuring 10 regional and 4 international superstars, with the Grand Finale held here in Kuala Lumpur.
January 21st 2017 is our next exclusive (for Yonderers) Yonder Music Series concert and a date that you will want to save. More information will be reveal very soon. Yonder Music, Hear Forever™”
In conjunction with its 1st Anniversary in Malaysia, Yonder Music will be celebrating this auspicious occassion in typical Yonder Music style by the poolside of St Regis on the 22nd of November. The invite-only event will be attended by partners, loyal and active users, as well as some surprise celebrity guests. No Yonder Music party will be complete without a musical showcase and their first anniversary party is no different. There will be intimate performances by Dato’s Siti Nurhaliza, Yuna and the latest Indonesian sensation, Karel.
Since launching in Malaysia, the Yonder Music family has grown and also launched in Indonesia and Bangladesh with XL and Robi respectively in May 2016.
