The first line-up of acts to perform at the Future Music Festival Asia in Singapore was revealed today, and it comprises some of the biggest names of electronic dance music.
Pioneering electronica act The Prodigy, seminal British DJ and producer Fatboy Slim and EDM superstar Swedish DJ Avicii are among the names to take the stage here next March.
Slated for 13 and 14 March 2015 at the Changi Exhibition Centre, the music festival is a spin-off of the namesake Australian event. The last massive music event held at the venue was the Metallica concert in 2013, which saw 40,000 fans.
More than 50,000 people are expected to attend next year's festival, which will feature largely dance music such as house, techno, trance and hip-hop.
Other acts include Dutch DJ and producer Afrojack, Australian duo Knife Party, Canadian house duo Art Department, and up-and-coming British dance act Gorgon City.
On the regional front, Singapore’s Andrew T, Nez, Ya5th and DJ Rah will be performing alongside Malaysian counterparts Bottlesmoker, Bud Culture and Terence C.
More acts will be announced in January 2015.
Brett Robinson, director of Future Music Australia, said: “I believe we have a phenomenal line-up and I don’t think Southeast Asia, let alone Singapore, has ever witnessed a gathering of musical talents in a single event of this proportion and scale.
“I promise you, next year, Future Music Festival Asia 2015 will be the biggest music event to happen in this part of the region.”
Livescape Group’s chief executive Iqbal Ameer said: “We have always spared no expense in ensuring top-notch entertainment value for the fans. We understand how important it is to ensure that they get more than what they pay for.”
