Joe Sidek


George Town Festival

With over thirty years of experience in the world of culture and creativity, Joe Sidek has established himself as one of Malaysia’s leading advocates of the arts. An industrialist by trade and an entrepreneur by nature, Mr Sidek has organized countless shows and performances for a number of organizations across Malaysia, including government-sponsored events. His innovative expertise and business acumen, as well as his visionary passion, has led to his appointment as Festival Director of the George Town Festival in 2010, and as Managing Director of Tropfest South East Asia in 2013. Mr Sidek has since been invited to speak regionally about his role in the creation and continued growth of George Town Festival, including Brisbane, Taipei, Seoul and Yokohama.
