A wave of fun and festivities washed upon Siloso Beach’s sandy shores last night, as more than 12,000 revellers partied hard into the New Year at Singapore’s only beach countdown party, back on the island for its 9th edition.
Headlined by Dutch producer and DJ Don Diablo, the Siloso Beach Party had everyone up on their feet with 12 hours of non-stop crowd-pumping music till 6am. The line-up also included local and international beatdroppers such as DJs Funky T, Ollie’des, Inquisitive, Eclipse, Electrokat, Sabrina, and 2015 Sentosa DJ Spin-Off winner, DJ Caden.
At the stroke of midnight, partygoers were treated to their first surprise of the year. Their New Year’s resolutions, which they had penned on confetti paper upon registration, rained down on them during an epic fireworks display, making for a truly enthralling sight.
“We’re very proud of the success and unique formula of the Siloso Beach Party. The tradition of counting down to the New Year with loved ones while dancing in flip-flops to good music on Singapore’s favourite beach makes for a fabulous countdown experience that will be remembered for a long time. It was definitely heartening to see the grins on everyone’s faces when their resolutions were rocketed into the air at the start of the New Year,” said Agatha Yap, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sentosa Leisure Management.
She added, “We’re extremely grateful to all who made tonight possible and the partygoers – locals and foreigners alike – who welcomed the New Year and the possibilities it will bring with us. Stay tuned for our 10th edition of Siloso Beach Party in 2016 which promises an even more incredible countdown experience!”
“I’ve celebrated New Year’s Day on every continent and this is my first New Year’s in Asia. I enjoy that the crowds in Singapore are very enthusiastic. They really appreciate the music and I think there’s a real connection between us. I personally love playing outside, especially at a beautiful environment like the Siloso Beach. This is a little piece of paradise and it’s amazing to be surrounded by such beautiful nature where the spirits are so high on the first day of the year, celebrating whatever is going to come in the year 2016,” said DJ Don Diablo.
