Hello foodies! Genting Highlands is already home to your favourite event, the Good Vibes Festival that happens every July. Now, Resorts World Genting launches another open-air festival, the Starlight Carnival to keep us festival-goers up and excited! Befitting its name, you can imagine an inky black sky studded with pinpricks of stars, twinkling like diamonds against a satin background. October creeps close and so does the…Starlight Carnival, are you ready!?
Open-Air Festival Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday From 10th October to 2nd November 2019
Somewhere on the left, exclamations of delight at the fun fair where someone has won a prize. And, to the right, the iconic fanfare that heralds the start of a blockbuster movie. So, if this sounds like a fantastic night out for you and your pals, then Resorts World Genting’s first-ever Starlight Carnival is exactly where you guys should be! The festival features four key elements – movies, music, food and games. It’s a picture-perfect setting at the Century Lake Park in Genting Highlands. Cooling air and exciting festivities for four consecutive weeks? You’ll wish October started sooner!
Starlight Carnival Cinema: ‘Movie Under The Stars’
It is no doubt that at the Starlight Carnival, the attractions are as varied as they are entertaining. The Carnival Cinema will be a red carpet of blockbuster movies – including A Star Is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Jersey Boys and The Greatest Showman. If you’re feeling old school and crave for some classics, don’t you worry because there are several other hit movies. Resorts World Genting is also bringing it back with classics such as The Sound of Music, Chicago, Singing in the Rain, The Wizard of Oz and more!
Food Galore At Starlight Carnival: After-Dark Gourmet Street Dining
If hunger strikes, then grab a bite (or several) from one of the many gourmet food trucks and dining options scattered across the Carnival. Food trucks will serve up an unbeatable variety of snacks – from hot dogs to chocolates! Moreover, Resorts World Genting will also be showcasing some of the latest additions to their F&B suite. Here are some of the new options you can try out:
- FUHU by Zouk (Zouk Genting Complex)
- A vibe dining restaurant will be cooking up examples of its unique fusion cuisine (RM20 per dish), try their FUHU spice tacos and FUHU duck essence porridge!
2. Harry Ramsden
- London’s beloved fish and chips comes to Malaysia!
3. Il Lago
- The taste of Italy arrives in hearty servings with pizzas, pastas and more!
4. Cosmic Cafe
- Eat local favourites like nasi ayam and mee bakso!
5. La Cremeria and Sjora
- Ice cream and mango-based drinks from the La Cremeria tent and Sjora truck!
*All dishes will be priced between RM10-RM51, while all drinks will be priced between RM5-RM15.
From sunset onwards, the Carnival will also be a space filled with melodies. A talented line-up of musicians, including Aidan Soloist, VIBES, McBE Duo and Double Aze, will take to the pop-up Gazebo stage to provide the soundtrack and mood for the twilight fiesta.
Eat, Drink And Be Merry At The Starlight Carnival Oktoberfest Hall
For those hard party-goers, there’s another perfect option for you! Resorts World Genting presents its own version of a Bavarian festival at the Oktoberfest Hall, held at a separate area of the Carnival with its own set of food, drink and entertainment offerings. The main feature will, of course, be beer! You can find up to 18 types of premium beers – from Carlsberg Special Brew to Brooklyn OPA, from Franzikaner Hefe to Connor’s Stout Porter – all served in chilled glasses.
The beers are priced from RM15-RM45 for Genting Rewards Club members and RM20-RM50 for non-members. Because beer is always paired with food, the Oktoberfest Hall will have its own food kiosks. Choose from truffle sausages, kimchi hot dogs, cheese beef burgers and more. In addition, did we mention there’s also cheesy nachos from Loaded Nachos? (OMG, yes!)
Nothing wraps up a good festival like music, and there’ll be a variety of bands at the Oktoberfest Hall for sure! Confirmed performers include Part III, Society of Souls, an Oompah Band and tribute bands to the Gypsy King, The Beatles and Queen. And for one evening only, Zouk Genting takes over the Oktoberfest Hall stage on 2 November 2019 in a celebration of dance music as Starlight Carnival presents the first-ever Resorts World Genting Zouk Live!
