Slow start to wet ZoukOut

Slow start to wet ZoukOut

Saturday's wet weather did not dampen the mood of party-goers at the annual dance music festival, ZoukOut.

The second day of the party on Siloso Beach in Sentosa got off to a slow start, with the crowd growing larger only later in the evening even though the doors opened early at 8pm.

But headlining acts Danny Avila and Dash Berlin pumped up the audience, along with other international and local deejays who spun sets until 8am on Sunday.

Malaysian research executive Kelly Ng, 24, who was attending ZoukOut for the first time with three friends, enjoyed the environment and music.

She said: "We came to see deejays Zedd, Alesso and Dash Berlin. It's a great atmosphere with good music."

She added that the cashless mode of payment using ez-link cards was smooth. The scheme, introduced for the first time this year, allowed party-goers to pay for food and drinks as well as merchandise using the cards.

Day One last Friday kicked off with a bang, featuring the likes of deejays Nervo, Afrojack and Krewella.

Heating up the atmosphere were fringe activities such as fire- dancers and stilt-walkers decked out in psychedelic lights.

Into its 13th year, the party on Siloso Beach saw a crowd of more than 41,000 people over the two days.
