That’s a wrap on Malaysia’s super grand “Good Vibes Weekender 2022” music festival! The music was phenomenal, the outfits amazing, and the vibes immaculate. The audience was on their feet throughout the festival, especially during some of the biggest highlights of both nights – CL and Jackson Wang!
CL and Jackson Wang performed solo in Malaysia for the first time, making an appearance at the Good Vibes Music Festival on the 23rd and 24th. While CL finessed on the stage with her stunning aura and vibrant glow, Jackson Wang created some of the best audience interaction by dancing closely with fans —but that’s not all that happened!
Now you’ve probably seen stories of the festival swarming your Instagram stories, but here’s what you may not know!

Fan chant has always been a thing for K-Pop artists, and it showed at Good Vibes 2022! After the spectacular performance by Joe Flizzow and SonaOne, fans diverted their attention to the next stage, bursting out CL’s name.
The 2NE1 leader, CL, did not disappoint as she opened the stage with a bang, performing an all-time favourite, “The Baddest Female.” It was a nostalgic moment for fans as she brought many classic songs, including “Spicy,” “The Baddest Female,” “Hwa” and “Tie A” Cherry.”

Performing the choreography in a leather jacket did make her feel the heat but not enough to convince her to remove it.
“I want to take this jacket off, but I don’t want to get in trouble, so…” – CL.
Although CL didn’t interact much with fans offstage, her stage presence was enough to woo the crowd leaving them sentimental at the end of Day 1.

Composures left the venue, and minds were blown when the GOT7 member jumped down from the stage to sing “Blow” to the fans at the front. The 28-year-old proved to everyone that he was the definition of the word ‘Performer.’ We were also blessed with older and newer songs like “Drive It Like You Stole It” and “Cruel,” respectively. When everyone thought the show had ended, Jackson came back on stage to ask fans to recommend him a place to dine, to which everyone answered, “MAMAK!”
After a night of anticipation, GOT7 lightsticks were up as soon as the screens projected “MAGIC MAN.” Opening the stage with “100 Ways”, the smartphones in the air did not go down.

Good Vibes Weekender turned into a screamfest as Jackson continued his performance with “Drive It As You Stole It” and “Cruel,” but as soon “Blow” came into track, the performer got down from the stage to perform closer with his fans. It was shocking that no one fainted because the temperature was getting hotter!
If you think that is all, think again!

When fans thought the show had ended, their favourite artist came back on stage requesting a recommendation to dine. And Malaysians would know one best place in mind to which they all shouted, “MAMAK.”
Stepping to Malaysia for the first time, American R&B singer-songwriter Pink Sweat$ put on his classic pink outfit and sang several songs from Whole Wheat, including “Icey,” “Magic,” and “Pink Money.”
However, things turned out when he performed “At My Worst.” A man in the audience got down on one knee and popped the question, to which the crowd burst into cheer.
