Tiger Beer uncages roaring final celebration for Year of the Tiger with K-pop star Jessi and top Cambodian acts

Tiger Beer – Asia’s number one international premium beer – brought Cambodia’s year-long Year of the Tiger celebrations to an electrifying finale on December 3 with the ultimate “Celebrate Your Confidence” event, which saw top Cambodian artists sharing a bold stage with global K-pop sensation Jessi at her first ever concert in the Kingdom.

The event, which attracted more than 20,000 spectators, was organised as part of Tiger’s global Year of the Tiger movement to celebrate confidence and inspire those who want to live their dreams by uncaging their inner Tiger.

Headliner Jessi, with Cambodia’s very own G-Devith, Tey$, CG Movement, KlapYaHandz, and KmengKhmer, together delighted fans and music lovers with their shared boldness, which was brought to life in their high-energy performances throughout an unforgettable night.

“Jessi’s signature fearless style and unapologetic personality is a great embodiment of our brand belief that confidence always finds a way, and we’re thrilled to have her headline Tiger’s special night.

“More than a concert, our final celebration is our tribute to our consumers for setting and achieving their bold ambitions.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up the Year of the Tiger – and we wouldn’t have it any other way,” said Sorida Kong, Senior Brand Manager Tiger at Heineken Cambodia.

One of the world’s fastest growing premium beer brands, Tiger Beer was born in Asia in 1932 and became a symbol of boldness for creating a high-quality brew in the tropics when others said it was impossible to do so.

For this Year of the Tiger, the brand launched a year-long campaign to empower Cambodians to similarly defy the odds and believe in themselves by connecting with their passion points, from providing a space for local artists to express themselves to partnering with Son Heung-min – one of Asia’s most inspiring footballers – on his bold FIFA World Cup® bid.

Tiger advocates responsible consumption and urges consumers not to drink and drive.

During the event, the brand worked with ride-hailing app Grab to provide discounted travel to and from the event to ensure safe journeys for those attending.
