Gardens By The Bay Is Having An EDM Festival This Oct With Big Names Like DJ Snake, Kaskade & R3HAB

HypeWorld Festival 

If you’re a music lover in Singapore, chances are you’ve been thrilled about the slew of concerts and festivals being announced in the recent weeks. Chances are, you’ve already gone to 1 or 2 – and are still reeling from Billie Eilish post-concert withdrawal while singing Happier Than Ever in the shower. 

But you won’t be wishing to turn back time for long. From 22nd-23rd October, there’ll be an international line-up of DJs coming to Singapore for HypeWorld Festival – we’re talking names like DJ Snake, R3HAB, and Yellow Claw.

HypeWorld Festival will take over The Meadow at Gardens by the Bay. Yes, the exact location where indie music festival, Laneway Festival, used to take place annually. This also marks the first outdoor EDM festival since Covid-19 started, 2 months ahead of ZoukOut in December. 

The electronic dance music festival will be happening over 2 days – 22nd and 23rd October – from 4pm till late. So it’s time to get your best dancing sneakers and festival outfits on. After all, it’s almost like Ultra Music Festival, which last took place in Singapore in 2019. 

Stellar line-up of international DJs  

Here’s the most important question: “But who will be playing?” 

The organisers have just released more acts to the line-up. Perhaps the most known name on the list is DJ Snake, a Grammy-nominated French DJ and producer known for mainstream radio-friendly bangers such as Turn Down for What, Taki Taki, and Let Me Love You feat Justin Bieber.
