The Chainsmokers, Yunohoo and NYK at Heineken®’s ‘Refresh Your Music, Refresh Your Nights’!

On the 9th of December 2022, I was invited to Heineken®'s event at Genting Highlands. It's in conjunction with their ‘Refresh Your Music, Refresh Your Nights’ campaign which kicked off in Asia with two concerts featuring the world-famous electropop duo, The Chainsmokers. Four local artists; namely Yunohoo and NYK from Malaysia, and Thu Minh and Karik from Vietnam, performed alongside The Chainsmokers.

Thanks to Heineken®, I got the privilege to catch the performance by The Chainsmokers and the local artists’ performances. Both concerts were major successes, with 5,000 music fans at the Malaysian concert, where they displayed immense support for them.

Preceding to the concerts, Heineken® encouraged fans to break out of their music bubbles, seeking to open their minds to different genres through sharing music from many cultures. In the lead-up to the concerts, fans were encouraged to vote for their favourite refreshed renditions of The Chainsmokers hit songs, created by the local artists. These renditions were well-received by fans, showcasing their immense support for their favourite local artists.

Fans of music raised their hands as The Chainsmokers and local artists – NYK, Yunohoo, DJs Blink, BATE, and Julian – brought the roof down with their music.

In Malaysia, the concert was held on 9th December at Resorts World Genting, and Yunohoo kicked off the performance with her own songs like Kaalam, AV and Rani, rounding off her performance with her rendition of The Chainsmokers’ hit song Don't Let Me Down, in her own distinctive musical style.

This was followed by NYK’s performance starting with his popular songs such as Daylight, faded and pretty burn, before launching into his rendition of The Chainsmokers’ song, Something Just Like This, showcasing his take on duo’s song. NYK’s performance was followed by the headliners of the concert, The Chainsmokers, who performed many of their hit songs to rousing cheers from music fans.

“Through the ‘Refresh Your Music, Refresh Your Nights’ campaign, we wanted to echo Heineken®’s belief that life tastes better with an open mind, regardless of social situations or music preferences. The fans' incredible energy and willingness to break out of their music bubbles affirmed our belief that music does transcend all boundaries,” says Rajeev Sathyesh, Heineken® Brand Director (APAC).

Apart from Yunohoo and NYK, the concert also featured other spirited performances by local DJs Blink, BATE and Julian. I was super hyped up by their sets especially from Blink with his super energetic heart pumping set and stage presence.

The Chainsmokers gave their fans a night to remember with an electrifying performance here at Resorts World Genting. I felt really glad that I was there to watch his performance and YESSSS, it was definitely a night to remember! Party of the year perhaps?

"The evening with The Chainsmokers and our local artists was something never seen before and definitely one for the books. The response we received from Malaysians during the voting phase and at the concert is proof that we are all ready to expand our horizons musically, cultivate new relationships, and create new memories worthy of a lifetime," said Willemijn Sneep, Marketing Director of Heineken Malaysia Berhad.
