Festival season is upon us and what better way to kick December off than with Singapore's premiere beach dance party?
ZoukOut is set to return for its 18th edition this December and this year, the festival will be shaking things up. This year, ZoukOut will be taking place a week earlier than usual, on 1 December, making the festival a one-day extravaganza. But don't let the singular date fool you, the festival line-up gathers some of the biggest names in the dance music.
Below, check out seven reasons why you should attend ZoukOut 2018.
It's A Single-Day Event
With the norm of festivals lasting two days or longer, festival-goers usually find themselves being burnt out from all the partying. With a single-day event, attendees will get to spend the rest of their weekend resting and preparing themselves for the coming week. This means you can get all your partying done in one single stretch and rest after without feeling any regret.

With the gents making their highly-anticipated and long-awaited debuts, their respective sets at ZoukOut 2018 are shaping up to be some of the biggest EDM performances Singapore has ever seen.
