Zero Millennium Countdown

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (1999-2000)

Event Overview:

After the long-awaited event of the century, following all the hype and fanfare, we found ourselves at the threshold of infinity and on the brink of a new era.

The Globe transformed into a massive countdown party, offering us two thousand reasons to come together and celebrate with our brothers and sisters in Malaysia.

Regardless of how the masses perceived the millennium and their beliefs about its significance, we all shared that moment together on December 31st, 1999, through the sunrise of January 1st, 2000.

This event was co-produced with an old friend from my Singapore days, Joe Ghazzal (DJ Hardy from Downtown Discotheque), and his local team, Global 2000 Sdn Bhd. On my end, I chose my mentor, Solomon Mansoor, to be the Chief Producer, alongside our entire in-house team from our US office, who dedicated themselves to a two-month-long production ordeal.


This event marked one of Southeast Asia’s largest millennium celebrations, held in the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. Welcoming the New Year, the celebration unfolded as a monumental concert production at Subang Capital Airport (formerly the International airport). The countdown took place on an active airport runway, with aircraft flying overhead, releasing confetti to the eager crowd at midnight. Notably, the airport resumed its operations at 6 AM after the event.

This sold-out spectacle drew 60,000 attendees and featured a massive countdown stage adorned with fireworks displays, accompanied by two additional clubbing stages within the airport premises.

Zero Millennium Countdown remained one of the proudest events we have ever produced!
