At least 15,000 people will gather at the World Musical Festival in Taman Kuari from July 20 to 22.

Steps would be taken to ensure smooth traffic flow on the road leading to the venue, state tourism chief Teng Chang Yeow said after inspecting the site yesterday.

“The road to Taman Kuari will be fully decorated by the end of next week. This festival is one of the main events held in conjunction with Visit Malaysia 2007,” he said.

The festival will feature 13 international bands from the Solomon Islands, the United States, Afghanistan, Italy, South Africa, Russia, Peru, Britain, Burkina Faso and other countries.
