Mark your calendar, ZoukOut will be back on Dec 11 and 12

The excitement’s in the air and pulsating bodies are moving to the same beat — there’s no mistaking Singapore’s definitive annual dance festival, ZoukOut. Back on Dec 11 and 12 at Siloso Beach Sentosa, the event is back and it’s bigger and better than before.

1. It’s the last ZoukOut (organised at Jiak Kim)

One World, One Music, One Tribe, One Dance.

Our sincerest apologies if the subhead caused some panic among Zouk fans. Worry not, this won’t be the last ZoukOut.

Nonetheless, ZoukOut 2015 is the final instalment that would be organised from its current headquarters at Jiak Kim Street before the 24-year-old superclub makes the big move to its new premises at Clarke Quay next year.

In fact, the upcoming festival is the club’s 15th edition since 2000. Diehard fans of Singapore’s most popular night club, how can you not be there?

Tickets available here.

2. Meet the world’s biggest names in music

Party with the biggest names in dance music

Most of the time, bikini-clad sun seekers and picnic-toting families dot the beaches of Sentosa.

Come Dec 11 and 12, some of the world’s biggest names in music will gather at the same sandy shores for Asia’s most anticipated music festival.

ZoukOut’s opening day on Dec 11 will see top music acts like Porter Robinson [United States]; Paul Kalkbrenner [Germany]; Paul Oakenfold [United Kingdom]. The second day on Dec 12 will feature Armin Van Buuren [Netherlands], Andrew Rayel [Moldova] and Claude VonStroke [US].

Fans of local musicians can also look forward to partying with homegrown acts on Dec 12 like Vandetta; Kurt; Darren Dubwise; Shigga Shay; Thelioncityboy; KoFlow; Syafii; Attagirl! Feat. A/K/A, Durio & Jaydah; and Jean Reiki.

3. The party never ends
