The lights, the people, the cultures, and the moments. But most importantly, the music. Every fan’s dream is to catch their favourite artists live in the flesh, because nothing beats being in the moment and feeling the music first hand.
Some lucky fans got to experience that when they caught Rihanna Live in London as well as the explosive line up of electronic dance music legends like Afrojack, Deadmau5, Avicii, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, and many more at this year’s edition of Korea’s largest music festival, Ultra Korea.
All through Play Club KL’s new party movement – PLAY DAY OUT.
First up, 2 lucky music lovers accompanied by Malaysian Youtube star Joseph Germani and social media influencer Alicia Tan lived it up at Ultra Korea, Korea’s largest music festival.
Headliners include Knife Party, Martin Garrix, Fedde Le Grand, and also ground breaking artistes such as Chase and Status – a duo that Time Out London describes as having “juggernaut beats, skittering rhythms and colossally filthy dubstep-to-jungle bass wobble”, as well as Dutch producer and musician, Netsky, who DJ Mag describes as having a “glossy, ultra-clean take on drum and bass”.
For a duration of 3 days, Germani and Tan partied hard not only with the winners but alongside tens of thousands of the friendliest and nicest people from all over the globe as ravers united in one place to celebrate their love for electronic dance music.
The Play Day Out winners also caught Avicii’s very last show at Ultra Korea 2016, a heartbreakingly significant moment in electronic dance music history which lit the Seoul Olympic Stadium sky high as it sounded like the entire of Seoul sang along to “Wake Me Up” and “Waiting For Love” and turning the stadium into an oversized dance and fist-pumping extravaganza.
Next up on the music train was Rihanna Live in London where 3 blessed Bad Gal RiRi enthusiasts accompanied by Malaysian beat box sensation Shawn Lee got the chance of a lifetime thanks to Play Day Out, to watch the Barbados songstress strut her stuff and set the stage on fire.
Rihanna kick-started the show with her ballad of “Stay” instead of one of her bass thumping numbers, much to the surprise of her fans, using only the power of her voice to draw in the crowd.
She then belted out some of her classics that we’ve loved long time such as “Umbrella” and a goosebumps-inducing rendition of “Diamonds”, as well as some of her newer hits from her most recent album, ANTI which includes smash hits “Work” and “Desperado”.
The lucky winners further made the rest of the world jealous as they got to witness one of Rihanna’s rare moments of when she shows her softer side, clearly feeling the love from the crowd and thanking everyone involved in making her shows happen, before swearing by her Bad Gal RiRi status.
Play Club KL went through the spirits of the winners they sent, partied like there was no tomorrow, and conquered both Ultra Korea and Rihanna Live in London. With Play Day Out’s next stop being Ultra Bali, who knows what awaits the next batch of lucky winners.
