Presented as the largest event of its type in Malaysia, the Glowtopia Festival is set to shine when it transpires at the end of the year. Elaborate in offerings and settings, it boasts quite the list of attractions, most of which are centred on glowing elements as suggested by the name.
This fun-in-the-dark escapade hails from the United States, and is brought to you by the same folks who organised another recent exciting American import, Slide The City. The Glowtopia Festival even offers a massive waterslide like the latter, except the Blacklight Slide is famous for being rich with vibrant, luminous splashes!
A Glowing Utopia
While zooming down the largest inflatable glow-in-the-dark slide around may be the main draw for many, it’s far from the sum of entertaining options here. These Glowtopia Festival specials come together to create a family-friendly, yet a thoroughly enjoyable party to see 2018 off in memorable fashion.
As the sun goes down beyond the horizon, all you need is a little exploratory walk around the Bukit Jalil Stadium Carpark venue to discover some truly interesting gems. Getting you into the party mood is the live music pumping throughout the night, accompanying you wherever you go.
Stop by the neon art activation room to take in a mesmerising series of eye candy, which also sets the scene for some hard-to-top social media photos. Loads of glow-in-the-dark games and activities pepper the area too, so do keep a lookout for some action you can tuck into with family and friends. If you’re tired, there’s a resting place that doesn’t let the iridescent theme down, for it features striking LED designs.
Multiple food trucks and bazaar vendors, stocked with taste bud-pleasing items, help keep hunger and thirst at a distance, and some of these may even incorporate glowing traits! It’s worth noting that this is a white T-shirt festival, so it’s whites or brights only. Alternatively, you can pick up a festival T-shirt as an optional extra when purchasing your ticket. Once you’ve got your outfits sorted, take the hashtag handle to heart and #SlideDownGlowUp.
