ZoukOut, Asia’s largest outdoor electronic music festival wraps up this year’s 17th edition with the revamp of the iconic Moon Stage into Singapore’s first ever large-scale structural 3D stage purpose-built for a music festival, 34 meters wide and 18 meters tall with over 40 strobe lights, 8 lasers, 834 LED panels, CO2 jets, and pyrotechnics.

This year’s ZoukOut 2017 ( 8th-9th December) drew over 40,000 party goers to Siloso Beach Sentosa. For over two nights, the festival featured some of the biggest global acts – Marshmello, Axwell^Ingrosso, R3HAB, Flume, Robin Schulz and more – featuring special live acts from Rich Chigga, Toti and Higher Brothers. Zoukout 2017 saw foreign visitors from around the region flying in to Singapore to attend this festival.


This year’s edition didn’t muster enough visitors as compared to last year’s numbers, the main stage wasn’t that packed as compared to last year while festival goers was more interested in various attractions rather than focused on the DJ performing on the stage. Despite the intimidating and awesome stage headpiece, the songs that most of the DJ’s played weren’t really that impressive. Most of their songs were really mainstream and very little of their own songs were actually played, Marshmellow, Axwell and Ingrosso were the major saving grace of the night, with many of their fans running and crowding the main stage when they came up on stage. Despite the DJ’s being the saving grace, there was a huge difference in this year’s overall atmosphere as compared to last year’s Zoukout.

ZoukOut Main Stage

Zoukout 2017 had more lows than highs as compared to the previous years, mostly due to the unknown DJs and mainstream music that were being played during the festival. On another note, this year’s food options were exceptional with popular crowd drawer like Keisuke Ramen having the longest queue almost every hour, Three Buns, Udders Ice Cream, Red Tail Grill by Zouk and The Lime Truck filling each and every partygoers hungry stomach.

This year’s ZoukOut partnered with AJ Hackett Sentosa, who recently launched Singapore’s first bungy jumping tower, on a series of adrenaline-fueled options for attendees with attendees waiting for their chance to take on the signature 50m tall Bungy Jump Tower and Asia’s only Vertical Skywalk.
