50 Foot Dandelion Arrives In Asia For Heineken Thirst 2012

Wish, a 50 foot LED dandelion has arrived at Sepang International Circuit right on the heels of Malaysia’s premier electronic music festival, Heineken Thirst happening this 8 December.



Installation of the towering structure is in progress & will be ready for its Asian debut. Already a favourite at international music festivals like Coachella Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival and Nocturnal Wonderland, the 50 foot high Wish will be a sight to behold this Saturday.

Designed by San Francisco public art conceptualist Robert James, Wish consists of ‘three contemporary dandelions that are losing their seeds in the wind’. Clad in aluminium leaves and mirrored glass, the structure is edged with pulsating LEDs that react to the beats of music surrounding it.


“Wish is a figurative sculpture of three dandelions losing their seeds in the wind. As a child, I was always told when you held a dandelion and blew the seeds off, that a wish was to be made. Building it from ground up for the first time here in Asia will be nostalgic and as epic as Heineken Thirst,” says its creator, Robert James.

This year, Heineken Thirst features 12 DJs performing in two arenas with Avicii and Justice both making their Malaysian debut. They are joined by top flight talents from abroad: Above & Beyond, Gesaffelstein, Brodinski and Heineken Thirst alumnus: Goldfish and Blink, LapSap, Mr Nasty and GuruGuru, Phil K Lee, Tommy Cham, Nick Haydez, Jee Hoe and Hypeembeats,

Be A Star Karaoke Genting

Found this rather bright and eye catching karaoke signage. It's located in Genting highlands, so the next time you feel like singing in the clouds do drop by.

Be wary of the prices though.
