It felt like all hope was lost for many festival attendees who had bought tickets to see artistes at Good Vibes Festival 2023 (GVF 2023) over the weekend

The three-day festival, which was suddenly cancelled following a controversial incident involving English pop-rock band, The 1975, left many festival-goers frustrated and disheartened that they could not enjoy the rest of the performers.

Also facing the burn were food vendors that had prepped enough food for the three-day crowd and were left with tonnes of leftovers.

Despite the festival's cancellation, one lucky group of Malaysian fans got to meet and hang out with California-based indie band, Peach Tree Rascals, who were set to perform on the last day of the festival

Anith, a Peach Tree Rascals fan, coincidentally met another fellow fan who informed her of when the band was arriving at the airport and the hotel they were staying at.

After checking her sources, Anith and her two friends decided to make a sign out of manila card which they quickly went to buy, and try their luck at meeting the band.

Luckily, they managed to meet Peach Tree Rascals at the airport just as they arrived!

Thinking their meet-up had concluded, Anith and her friends made their way back home from the airport. However, during the journey, Anith learned that she had been added to an Instagram group named PTR Malaysia, which stood for Peach Tree Rascals.

As the band only had one night to spend in Malaysia, someone who was part of the crew asked several fans they had just met if they wanted to have dinner with the band at Jalan Alor.

Surprised by the sudden invitation, Anith and her friends, along with a few other fans, ended up spending the rest of the night eating and hanging out at Jalan Alor with Peach Tree Rascals themselves

To make the whole meet-up even more delightful, the band sang their most famous song, Mariposa, and even unveiled a couple of unreleased tracks that no one else had heard yet.

Here are some of the videos Anith and her friend, Irdina, shared with SAYS:

The band even agreed to a small photo session with the group, and were captured saying, "I love Malaysia".

Aside from Peach Tree Rascals, Australian rapper kid LAROI also tried to make up for the festival's cancellation by having a casual performance with Malaysian fans

kid LAROI, who was set to headline on the second day of the festival, posted an Instagram Story apologising to Malaysians after news of the cancellation.

"Touched down and found out the festival is cancelled. I love you, Malaysia. I'm sorry," he said in his Instagram Story.

Making the most of his time in Malaysia, the artiste decided to hold a "private performance" at his hotel lobby for fans who showed up.

Another GVF headliner, The Strokes, also apologised to fans saying that they hope to return to Malaysia soon:
