Head to Genting’s cooler climes to catch Grade A acts from around the world this month Regarded as one of the most anticipated music events of the year, the outdoor Good Vibes Festival brings electric energy, hypnotic music, and plenty of spectacular audio-visual effects to the lush fields of The Ranch in Genting Highlands for one unforgettable weekend. A music lover’s dream, the star-studded line-up is filled with big-name international artists like Kodaline (High Hopes, All I Want), G-Eazy (Me, Myself & I, Good Life) and Dua Lipa (Scared To Be Lonely, Blow Your Mind), who will be headlining the main shows on Friday and Saturday night. Joining them are The Kooks, who rose to fame in 2006 with their catchy Brit-pop album Inside In/Inside Out, and electronic music duo Snakehips, who hit the bigtime with their track All My Friends featuring Tinashe and Chance the Rapper.
That’s not forgetting the local acts that will be gracing the stage both nights, showcasing the best of Malaysia’s thriving musical scene. First up is Ryöt Jones, an eight-member strong boy band, known for their funky soul-pop. Meanwhile, those into chilled R&B will love the vocal stylings of alextbh, who writes and produces all his songs by himself. Finally, look out for singer-songwriter Talitha Tan, who will bring her guitar, silvery vocals and bubbly personality to light up the Good Vibes stage on night two.
Tickets come in the form of a one-day pass (Saturday or Sunday only) or two-day pass for those that want the complete festival experience. As shows on both days only start from 4pm, there’ll be plenty of time to explore the nearby attractions. Festival-goers can enjoy the casino, spa, Vision Games Park and bowling available at Genting Highlands just next door, or indulge in a little retail therapy at the newly opened Genting Premium Outlets. For refreshments, if the festival’s array of international pop-up food trucks and dessert vendors don’t suffice, there’s always plenty more to be had at one of Genting Highland’s star outlets, including pizza heaven Motorino and Burger & Lobster. With plenty of international and local music stars flying down, it’s set to be an enchanting weekend under the stars. Bring your squad, a picnic mat, plenty of pillows, and let the good vibes flow!
