Counting down to ZoukOut


ViPR and TRX


It’s that time of year again when thousands of festival goers are getting ready for what promises to be the Beach Party of the year.

The two-day ZoukOut festival, taking place from 12th to 13th December, offers music and dancing from dusk till dawn. With international artists and Zouk resident DJs on the decks and a diversity of sounds from Electro to Trance to Techno to House, it’s a music experience not to be missed.

More than 40,000 partygoers will descend on Siloso Beach, Sentosa, to celebrate the 14th year of ZoukOut, Asia’s only sunrise festival. There’s nothing quite like the experience of dancing all night until the last beat stops, right at Sunrise.

ZoukOut launched in 2000 with the aim of becoming the region’s definitive dance music festival and bringing Zouk’s spirit and energy to the great outdoors and an even larger audience.
