History[edit]

DJ Chuckie

ZoukOut 2010 celebrated 10 years of the festival in December 2010. It was held on Saturday, 11 December at Siloso Beach, Sentosa Island from 8pm-8am. The three headline acts performed at ZoukOut 2010 were multi-platinum selling artiste David Guetta, world-renowned trance DJ Tiësto and Grammy award-winning DJ Jazzy Jeff. The 10th anniversary saw a record attendance of 28,000 party-goers. As a result of such high demand from people wanting to attend and its growth in popularity, ZoukOut set out to hold the event from 2012 on a two-day basis (Friday & Saturday).[3]

ZoukOut has since held the festival for two-days at Siloso Beach, Sentosa over the past few years. The 17th edition of Zoukout took place on 8–9 December 2017 at Siloso Beach and featured a gamut of acts, including Hip-Hop, Techno, House, Commercial EDM, Trance and more.[4]
