Genting Highlands, 2nd May 2019 – The capital of entertainment in Malaysia, Resorts World Genting is officially adding another feather to their cap with the grand opening of Zouk Genting on 19th May 2019.
Visitors can take advantage of the long weekend to make a trip up to the resort for the party of a lifetime. For over a year, the nightlife venue was masterminded by the nightlife experts behind Zouk Singapore, voted as the best club in Asia for the last 10 years by industry bible DJ Mag. Zouk Genting promises a complete experience with the Zouk Genting main stage, hip-hop club Empire by Zouk, gaming bar RedTail by Zouk, RedTail Karaoke and upcoming vibe dining restaurant FUHU Restaurant & Bar all in over 35,000 square feet of space.
“With 28 years of history to our brand, we’re proud to say that Zouk is widely considered to be the best club in Asia. We wanted to bring Zouk to new heights and Resorts World Genting was the perfect corresponding fit as Asia’s leading integrated resort,’ says Andrew Li, CEO of Zouk Group.
Partygoers will be able to vibe to one of the world’s best DJs who is also known for his talents as a record producer and remixer at Zouk Genting who will be on hand as the main act for the grand opening. Dutch-Moroccan talent Fadil El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB has been hailed by the likes of Forbes and Billboard Magazine as the future of his craft with past hits such as ‘Pump The Party’ and ‘Prutata’ with Afrojack. The event will also include a special Meet & Greet session for contest winners.
Heading the opening set will be Malaysian-born talents BATE who have always showcased high energy sets at major events and festivals across the region, including Future Music Festival Asia, Zouk Out, and the much talked about ‘Asia’s Largest Festival at Sea’: It’s The Ship. To date, BATE has performed in Melbourne, Seoul, Bangkok, and Singapore, and has supported the likes of Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa, Tiesto, Zedd, and Deadmau5 on tour. Bate have had the pleasure of playing Zouk Genting already and stated, “Zouk Genting feels like a home to us due to the energy, the state of the art sound and lighting system combined with a great team.”
Heading that team is General Manager Joseph Ryan who cannot wait for the launch following two years hard work designing, curating and planning the venue: “We’ve set the standard of staying ahead of the game amongst other clubs. I hope that visitors here will get goosebumps at the experiential overload we have designed and constructed within Zouk Genting, entertaining all of your senses with state-of-the-art lighting and sound technology set to blow your mind. It is the latest piece within the fully interactive Zouk Atrium where you can enjoy a complete evening of fun from start to finish in any of our 5 outlets.”
Zouk has already played host to some of the most famous DJs in the world, and already received rave reviews from the international talent. Industry heavyweight Markus Schulz revealed: “It is an absolutely amazing sound system, the production is amazing!” Trance legend Ferry Corsten remarked that “The beauty about the club is that it attracts a crowd that goes for one thing only: to have an amazing time, and I can’t wait to be back!”
