MGM Presents “MGM Chef Nic Gastronomusic Fest”.

MGM always strives to create original tourism and entertainment mega events. Following the debut of "MGM Chef Nic Gastronomusic Fest" in 2019, the loved and hyped music and gourmet festival jointly presented by MGM and Chef Nic will make its return this year on December 9 and 10 on the 1/F Roof Terrace of MGM COTAI. MGM, together with Chef Nic and his team, will once again curate a multisensory “fork n’ roll” festival combining gourmet, music and fun. Audience will enjoy a sensational mix of delicious cuisines by the cooking teams and an impeccable gig from an open-air live concert. The offering of an inspirational experience showcases the creativity and vibrancy of Macau as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.  


“MGM Chef Nic Gastronomusic Fest” brings together iconic singers and bands from Asia, mainland China and Hong Kong, headlined by Nicholas Tse’s high-octane rock ‘n’ roll performance, alongside with Chinese rock band Tarzan, pop stars Hailey Liu and Young Cao, Hong Kong band Dear Jane, pop singers Edmond Leung and Gin Lee, rising stars Panther Chan and MC Cheung, and girl group XiX as support act. The impressive lineup, each of unique style, will put an electro spin on the rousing party in a high-energy atmosphere.


Chef Nic and a team of acclaimed chefs will engage in a creative culinary dialogue with the MGM head chefs to present a colorful array of East-West gourmet delights merging fine dining and food festival dishes in innovative ways. Danyi Gao, the only female chef in the “Feng Wei” culinary competition on the global food challenge program and the champion back in 2017, and Beichuan Yang, one of top four contestants, together with Domino Dee, Amanda Strang and Hilda Chan from Chef Nic team, and notable chef Edward Voon, will be delivering an enticing flow of gourmet indulgence, a perfect blend of visual, sound and taste sensations.


Meanwhile, MGM’s own elite chef’s team will be showcasing distinctive creations, including Yang Dengquan of One-Michelin-starred Sichuan restaurant Five Foot Road and Homan Tsui of One-Diamond Black Pearl awarded Cantonese restaurant Imperial Court. In addition, Mario Gil and Sihui Pan will be teaming up to present a French vs. Pan-Asian flair; Jefferson Lim and João Costa Casimiro for American and Portuguese scrumptious bites and pastry chefs Bruno Le Francois and Neo Ng will whip up a tempting array of sweet creations.


Hubert Wang, President and Chief Operating Officer of MGM China Holdings Limited, said, “MGM Chef Nic Gastronomusic Fest” is a cross-industry IP festival jointly developed by MGM and Chef Nic, which caters to Gen Z’s devotion in unique travel experiences. Leveraging MGM’s expertise in creating original and diverse cultural tourism offerings and merging with Chef Nic’s avant-garde gourmet lifestyle, the festival celebrates a holistic way of art of living in a new era.  This extravaganza will bring Macau a multi-dimensional sensory and tourism experience integrating gourmet and music. It will captivate global tourists with a refreshing indulgence, as well as elevate Macau as a “Creative City of Gastronomy”.

Nicholas Tse said, “Gastronomy and music are two distinct art creations. One showcases style through ‘flavors’, while the other conveys an attitude through ‘musical notes’. Our commitment to curating exceptional life experiences led to our partnership with MGM in 2019, resulting in the successful debut of ‘Rock + Food’, the first large-scale music and gourmet festival in Macau. We will incorporate a wider range of elements this year, creating a one-of-a-kind experience with the audience.”


“MGM Chef Nic Gastronomusic Fest” is slated to open on December 9 and 10 on the 1/F Roof Terrace, MGM COTAI. Tickets are available on MGM website for sale starting on September 29 at 10am from MOP 888.


To entice international and regional visitors to this gastronomusic fest, MGM and Chef Nic will work together to kick off a series of online and offline promotional campaigns from September to December. Stay tuned!
