The ultimate attraction of Twilight Electric will be the must-see cabaret show, “Showtime at the Pink Flamingo.”
Intriguing and breathtaking, this intoxicating theatrical production will be performed harbourside in a traditional Spiegeltent.
It features a talented cast of international entertainers ranging from burlesque dancers and acrobatic artists to classically trained vocalists. Representative of the glitz, glamour and romance of the 1920s with a neon futuristic twist, the eclectic “Atlantis continues to evolve as a travel destination for all ages.
With rich cultural traditions, the cuisine, music and art of The Bahamas have become some of the many highlights of the resort experience. The magical playground of Twilight Electric will speak to our ‘Bahamas at Heart’ mantra as we merge international entertainers with local talent and tradition in creative and fantastical ways.
We are proud to host the international premiere of ‘Showtime at the Pink Flamingo,’ an over-the-top performance that you won’t want to miss,” says Audrey Oswell, President and Managing Director of Atlantis, Paradise Island.
“For the first time in The Bahamas, a glittering two-story Spiegeltent will activate the beautiful Nassau Harbour and provide visitors to Nassau and Paradise Island the opportunity to celebrate beneath the stars – just in case our vast array of marine life, educational programs and five miles of beautiful, white sandy beaches aren’t enough.”
In addition to nightly “Showtime at the Pink Flamingo” performances, festival-goers will be drawn to the harbourside beach boardwalk, which will feature culinary stations comprised of traditional carnival treats and authentic local Bahamian delicacies like conch salads and conch fritters.
A curated selection of Atlantis restaurants will have their own pop-up culinary booths during Twilight Electric’s ten-week run and, for the cocktail and spirit enthusiasts, hand-crafted libations ranging from Sky Juice and Rum Punch to signature festival cocktails featuring locally-infused flavors will also be available.
Art, theater and culture enthusiasts will be surprised and delighted as they come face to face with talented sideshow performers, including fire-breathing entertainers, limbo dancers and trapeze artists.
The iconic Junkanoo tradition of The Bahamas will be represented by various dance and music troupes from Nassau & Paradise Island, famous for their cowbell and goatskin drum-rhythmic sounds and elaborate, colourful costumes.
Additionally, local musicians will take the stage and entertain festivalgoers with pop-up performances.

About Atlantis, Paradise Island:
Atlantis, Paradise Island is a lush, oceanside resort located on Paradise Island in The Bahamas. A dynamic destination that launched 20 years ago as a first-of-its-kind modern marvel of nature and engineering, Atlantis has embarked on a new chapter tied to a meaningful connection with the ocean, Bahamian culture and the spirit of the property’s over 7,300 employees.
The resort’s new, immersive programming connects guests to the rich history, art, people, food and festivities of The Bahamas. Atlantis features five distinct properties in which to stay, from the iconic The Royal to The Beach and The Coral to the luxury properties, The Cove and The Reef. The resort is built around Aquaventure, an innovative, 141-acre waterscape of thrilling slides and river rides, pools and white sand beaches. Home to the largest open-air marine habitat in the world, over 50,000 marine animals from 250 species make their home in the ocean fed environments. From unparalleled meeting and convention space to the luxury Atlantis Marina accommodating yachts up to 220 feet in length overlooking Marina Village, a Bahamian marketplace, the Atlantis experiences are endless.
Other resort amenities include the 30,000sf tranquil Mandara Spa, Atlantis Kids Adventures (AKA) for children ages 3-12 and CRUSH, a cutting-edge teen club. The resort’s award-winning 18-hole Tom Weiskopf designed golf course, renowned Atlantis Casino and duty-free shopping are complemented by the property’s restaurants and lounges with celebrity chef culinary masterpieces including Fish by José Andrés; Nobu, by Nobu Matsuhisa; Olives, by Todd English and Casa D’Angelo by Chef Angelo Elia. Dolphin Cay, the resort’s 14-acre marine mammal habitat, is a state-of-the-art education center and animal-rescue rehabilitation hospital whose first residents were 17 rescue dolphins from Hurricane Katrina. Visitors to Dolphin Cay can participate in creative, non- disruptive “interactions” that build real awareness, stir emotion and help fund the resort’s conservation efforts. Through these guest participations and those offered through Atlantis Marine Adventures, a portion of the cost of each of the new on-property interactions goes back to the Atlantis Blue Project Foundation (ABPF), the resort’s nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to saving sea species and their extraordinary habitats throughout The Bahamas and surrounding Caribbean seas.
