Over 12,000 revellers ring in 2016 at Siloso Beach countdown party

More than 12,000 revellers partied hard into the New Year at Singapore's only beach countdown party, back on the island for its 9th edition.

Partygoers grooved to 12 hours of non-stop music at the Siloso Beach Party headlined by Dutch DJ Don Diablo. Local and international beatdroppers such as DJs Funky T, Ollie'des, Inquisitive, Eclipse, Electrokat, Sabrina, and 2015 Sentosa DJ Spin-Off winner, DJ Caden rounded up the line-up.

At the stroke of midnight, confetti paper penned with the revellers' New Year's resolutions rained down on them during an epic fireworks display.

Agatha Yap, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sentosa Leisure Management, said: "We're very proud of the success and unique formula of the Siloso Beach Party."

"The tradition of counting down to the New Year with loved ones while dancing in flip-flops to good music on Singapore's favourite beach makes for a fabulous countdown experience that will be remembered for a long time."

Meanwhile, DJ Don Diablo said: "I've celebrated New Year's Day on every continent and this is my first New Year's in Asia. I enjoy that the crowds in Singapore are very enthusiastic. They really appreciate the music and I think there's a real connection between us."
