Willemijn Sneep, Marketing Director of Heineken Malaysia Berhad, said, “From the ground-breaking Heineken® refreshed blended playlists on Spotify to the highly anticipated Heineken® Refresh event, our campaign aims to help consumers break out of their music bubbles and encourage enthusiasts to explore new sounds and encounters. Heineken® Refresh transcends mere events — it’s revolutionising the music experience. With music deeply embedded in Heineken®’s DNA, we’re thrilled to activate Heineken® Refresh for the second time, building on our debut event’s overwhelming response in 2022.”

In a testament to Heineken®’s spirit of innovation, the event showcased an interactive live voting feature fittingly called the Heineken® Music Takeover, introduced during Mr Yang B2B Ashley Lau and MJ’s sets. By integrating LED wristbands with technology, attendees synchronised or changed colours in response to signals, allowing the crowd to influence genre selections in real-time collectively. This dynamic interaction seamlessly bridged the gap between artists and audiences.

Heineken® Refresh is part of Heineken®’s cross-genre global music campaign, ‘Refresh Your Music, Refresh Your Nights.’ Earlier this year, the campaign introduced Heineken® Fresh List, an innovative digital activation in partnership with Spotify that broke the barriers of musical taste. It encouraged listeners to broaden their horizons by recommending them music outside their usual and was followed by a series of in-outlet activations, culminating in this spectacular finale. Accessible through the Heineken® Refresh Hub platform at https://www.freshlist.withspotify.com/ the unique Heineken® Refreshing Algorithm empowers fans to blend their playlists with global EDM superstar Martin Garrix and local
heroes Uriah and Ashley Lau.

While this year’s exhilarating Heineken® Refresh event may have come to a close, the thrill of shattering musical boundaries and uncovering fresh music with your beloved artists is still within reach as fans eagerly anticipate what Heineken® will bring next!
