As if you needed even more convincing to attend Singapore's definitive beach party of the year, ZoukOut has unveiled more names to finalise their lineup. Joining headliners Hardwell and Zedd are Dillon Francis, Lost Frequencies, Alan Walker, KSHMR and Snakehips who are making their debut performances in Singapore. After teasing us with a collaboration with Swedish heavyweight Alesso at Road To Ultra Taiwan, American DJ (and occasional Snapchat comic — follow him @dillonfrancis) Francis is bringing his brand of electro house to our shores. Listen to his track Anywhere with Rudimental favourite Will Heard below.
Belgian newbie Felix De Laet (also known as Lost Frequencies) will release his debut album Less Is More this weekend, and you'll get a firsthand taste of his 16-track record come December. If you loved The Cataracs (of Like A G6 fame), you might find KSHMR familiar — Niles Hollowell-Dhar (his real name) is one-half of the duo. The American of Kashmiri descent is moving forward with his solo effort, which fuses his Indian heritage with electronic music. Listen to his hypnotic release, Voices, below.
What will be served at ZoukOut? Our favourite sandwich place Park Bench Deli, no less. Fans of Teppei Syukudo will be pleased to note that bowls of barachirashi are on hand to sate your appetite, as well as zi char-style plates from Keng Eng Kee Seafood. Barbecue and burgers courtesy of Decker Barbeque and Three Buns respectively make for go-to beach fare, as well as the ramen bowls from Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King. True to the festival spirit, fringe features such as stilt walkers from Joan Walker and Afro-Brazilian percussion ouftit Samba Masala promise to spice up the sandy dancefloor.
