ZoukOut is being extended by one and a half hours on Day 1 of the festival, hoping to draw even larger crowds.
SINGAPORE: It is the time of the year again for ZoukOut -- a homegrown event that has become one of Asia's biggest dance festivals.
The number of partygoers in attendance has been increasing every year, but in 2012, the outdoor rave-fest saw its largest turnout ever with 40,000 people.
This year, the party is being extended by one and a half hours on Day 1 of the festival, hoping to draw even larger crowds.
In 2012, ZoukOut kicked off at 9pm and ended at 4.30am compared to this year's 8pm to 5am. Party hours for Day 2 on Saturday remain unchanged -- from 8pm to 8am.
From 7pm on Friday, queues already started forming at the door.
In its 13th year, ZoukOut is no stranger to the party scene and it hopes to hit a 41,000-strong crowd over the next two nights.
From sunset to sunrise, it is a rare chance for partygoers to let their hair down, kick off their shoes, and dance barefeet on Siloso Beach to a range of dance music, including electro, trance and hip hop.
This year's stellar lineup features Dutch house DJ Afrojack, best known for his energetic dance anthem, "Take Over Control", who will perform on Friday night, while Zedd, a Russian-German DJ behind electronic hit "Clarity", will make his appearance on Saturday.
The other A-list acts include US Electro group Krewella, Swedish DJ Alesso, Dutch Trance DJ Dash Berlin, as well as local DJ Adrian Wee and Zouk's pioneer resident DJ Jeremy Boon.
Food stalls and fringe events will also line the beach for revellers wanting to take a break.
Like previous years, the event attracts people from all across Asia and even dedicated clubbers from the US, UK and New Zealand.
