The founder of UNC Entertainment, Dylan Chyo, said, "More than just the headliners, MELOSAGA is the first-of-its-kind street music and dance competitions and carnival in Malaysia, which brings together an impressive line-up of regional performances, workshops, and street culture elements, here at Kuala Lumpur. Developed as an alcohol-free event, it is suitable for young and old alike."

The festival will feature an impressive mix of local and international dance competitions, starting with the RF Jam Malaysia Qualifier Round. Winners of the four-versus-four breaking and three-versus-three all-style will stand a chance to win a sponsored trip to RF JAM 2023 in Vietnam.

There will also be a Street Dance Art and Culture Association (SDACA) Championship, where international and local all-star dancers will compete to be the winners of BATTLESAGA.

Chief executive officer of Base Entertainment Asia, Chantal Prudhomme, added, "We are thrilled to be working with UNC Entertainment to present MELOSAGA, a music and dance festival which will connect entertainment with street culture by bringing established artists and emerging acts, both regional and local, under one roof."
