The Genting Highlands or as some would say the city of entertainment, a breezy resort-town situated atop Mount Ulu Kali at 1,800 meters high. Featuring a line-up that is not only competitive with other Malaysian festivals but the majority of South East Asia. The line-up isn’t the only reason to attend, neither are the region’s scenic green hills, they also organise fun activities and artistic installations. The festival most certainly lives up to the hype of its name.
