Measurements of $CP$ observables in $B^{\pm} \rightarrow D K^{*\pm}$ decays are presented, where $D$ denotes a superposition of $D^0$ and $\overline{D^0}$ meson states. Decays of the $D$ meson to $K^{-}\pi^{+}$, $K^{-}K^{+}$, $\pi^{-}\pi^{+}$, $K^{-}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}\pi^{+}$ and $\pi^{-}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}\pi^{+}$ are used and the $K^{*\pm}$ meson is reconstructed in the $K^{0}_{\mathrm{S}}\pi^{\pm}$ final state. This analysis uses a data sample of $pp$ collisions collected with the LHCb experiment, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 1 $\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$, 2 $\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ and 1.8 $\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ at centre-of-mass energies $\sqrt{s} = $ 7 TeV, 8 TeV and 13 TeV, respectively. The sensitivity of the results to the CKM angle $\gamma$ is discussed.
