Penang is famous for its festivals, with the citizens getting their glad rags on for a variety of different occasions, and it's been announced this year's George Town extravaganza will be held in August.

It's all great fun and you can certainly count on having a spectacular time. The festival lasts from the 1st of August until the 31st, meaning there's plenty of time to get some local performance in.

A variety of venues and locations will be participating in the event - keep an eye on the website as more are announced in the weeks running up to the extravaganza.
