Asia's largest beachfront music festival, ZoukOut, is pulling all the stops for its 17th edition, taking place on December 8th and 9th. And after revealing its final lineup, the organisers have now treated us to an insight of its 3D mainstage.
The iconic Moon Stage will be getting a massive facelift and is set to become the most elaborate stage ever seen at a music festival in Singapore. It’s also the city’s first-ever large-scale structural 3D stage, purpose-built for a music festival.
The stage design is inspired by the festival’s 17th stint in the Lion City. Executive chairman and chief executive officer of Zouk Singapore, Andrew Li said, “ZoukOut has over the years become synonymous among Singaporeans, with many of us having grown up with the brand.”
“As such, we felt that we needed to pay homage to this country which has been ZoukOut’s home for 17 years. As the world gathers at ZoukOut this year on December 8th and 9th, we hope to be able to show them the spirit of Singapore through our main stage,” he continued.
As seen in the photo above, the stage will feature a towering lion head with its paws raised, guarding over the audience. On its forehead, is Zouk’s symbol of unity, the “Zouk Eye”, which signifies togetherness and oneness through music. The will be supported by over 40 strobe lights, eight lasers, 834 LED panels, CO2 jets, and pyrotechnics to give the audience a spectacular sound and light experience.
The structure is hand carved in Singapore, and by the time it’s ready for the festival, it would have taken over three months to complete this mammoth project. This year’s edition will also feature AJ Hackett Sentosa’s bungy jump tower, a giant swing, vertical skywalk and skybridge.
