Who knows what ZoukOut 2011 could bring us when ZoukOut 2010 got our hearts throbbing with delight.
Here's what ZoukOut 2010 brought the party goers:
- Laidback Luke
- Norwegian Hans - Peter Lindstrom
- Australian trio - Midnight Juggernauts
- Booka Shade
- And so much more!
This is what we've got in ZoukOut 2010. Details for Zoukout 2011 are still not out but we are extremely positive that it's going to be a blast like it has always been! You can never expect anything mundane from ZoukOut.
If you're already making plans in your mind to get the tickets and head for Singapore for the next Zoukout, here are some tips just for you.
Wondering if you should drive?
There’s pros and cons in driving. The main problem would be finding parking. If you really have to drive, we would advice you to go in early to find parking. Do take note that there will be at least 20,000 people and probably 10% of them would consider driving. Good luck in finding a parking lot! According to the official ZoukOut website, parking is available at:
- Beach Station Car Park- Imbiah Lookout Car Park
- Cove Arrival Plaza Car Park
If you really really really have to drive, please carpool instead. Sentosa is charging $7 per car entry from 7pm to 7am and $5 flat for per car park entry. It makes economical sense to carpool instead and more efficient too!
If not, Singapore's transportation will guarantee you a fast, cheap and easy transport to your destination!
If you’re not driving…
Getting out of the island would be a damn hassle. If you’re a Blackberry user, we would advice you to download iCabSG Singapore Cab Dialer. All of the taxi numbers in Singapore are saved in this application and there’s given an option to “6-Dial-Cab” where you’ll be put through to the first cab company that answers. You can also download Show Nearby. This app indicates the bus services, bus timings etc.
We believe a good place to get a taxi would be at the Siloso Point Taxi Stand which is located opposite of the Underwater World bus stop.
Wondering what to wear?
As much as it’s a party, do remember it’s a BEACH party. Wearing jeans and high heels ain’t gonna sit well with you. If you like to torture yourself and enjoy a high from abrasions, please go ahead by all means.
Our advice would to wear something comfortable. Nothing way too covered up, cause you will be sweating like mad. (with about 20,000 people dancing away, the cool night breeze won't go too far in helping cool down) We would go with shorts and a bareback/tank/netted top or a light beach dress. Honestly, go with slippers or jellies. Sand in one’s shoes certainly ain’t sexy. Or comfortable.
Wondering what to bring?
Try not to bring way too many things. Ideally you should just bring your IC, some cash and the ZoukOut tickets. But we know that’s almost impossible for camwhores (people who like to take a lot of pictures) like us. There might be lockers around but most probably there wouldn’t be many available ones and might be a distance away. Carry a small sling bag if you really have to lug some items.
If lugging a camera is too much of a hassle for you, remember to clear some space from your mobile phone so that you can capture pictures on that day. Has anyone tried Qik Live Video Streaming? Wondering if you should consider live streaming. Hmmm.
Freebies for you?
Who'll say no to freebies? This is what ZoukOut 2010 has in store for their ticket holders.
Did you know that Crocs feeling generous and decided to give out party packs? (click on the link for more details) Thankfully one of our team members is on their mailing list and she found out about this great info! A towel would definitely be handy after the party. We hear that Singtel is offering free flow of drinks between 8-11pm for the first 400 Singtel customers at the Singtel Kaleidoscope. If you’re not a Singtel customer, fret not! Citibank card members enjoy 10% off tickets (if you have not purchased your tickets) and 1-for-1 drinks from 8-1 pm. If you are a Citi Clear Platinum card user, you’ll enjoy priority entry VIP and free flow drinks at the Citi Clear Platinum VIP marquee from 8-10pm. It’s only valid for the 1st 50 card members btw. You’ll get to bring a guest in too!
That's a lot of freebies and I'm sure with ZoukOut 2011 there will be more promotions you will get to enjoy.
It would also be best to drink before heading there. Drinks there aren’t cheap and from previous experiences, tend to be pretty watered down.
What if you get lost?
It would be best to discuss with your friends on a ‘emergency meetup area’. Set a certain area to meet just in case you guys get separated or *touch wood* a fight happens and everyone has to clear the area. We would suggest setting 2 meet up locations. One within ZoukOut and the other outside just in case. Do take note that the lines might be jammed up and contacting your friends by mobile might prove impossible. And the huge crowd there isn't going to help much.
Wondering about the weather?
As we all know, the weather is like a fickle grandmother. It would be best to waterproof your gadgets. We would advise you to ziplock your phone and camera, just in case!
And you may wanna reconsider that white outfit just in case it rains. Unless you’re wearing a nice bikini underneath of course.
Wondering what time your favourite DJ would be appearing?
You can always double check at ZoukOut's website or at the party itself.
Still undecided? Here are some photos and a video from ZoukOut 2009 for you to catch a quick glimpse of how much fun awaits you!
Tips for Countdown 2010/2011.
If you have young kids under 4 years old, don’t head for the exit immediately after the parade. The stairs are a ‘killer’ for the children, and they will be in danger of trampled upon after the parade. So, wait till the crowd clears, when the Parade ends! This is not a day for you to be Kiasu!
Party away in Singapore with such cool events. Make Singapore your party destination!
