As reported earlier, KWMF was previously known as SIEM. The initial plan of SIEM was to use the park of Balekambang park as a venue, but it failed due to the protests coming from Kethoprak artists which usually perform in Balekambang park that can not be performing during the SIEM held, as well as protests coming from environmentalists who worry that the neighborhood parks of Balekambang would be disturbed and broken.
