ZoukOut, Asia’s only dusk-to-dawn dance festival, will be returning once more this December to Siloso Beach in Sentosa, Singapore. The continent’s longest running dance music festival has never been one to do things in half measures, and so it is that their 17th edition features some of the scene’s foremost names.
Acadia Spectactular and its 50-tonne mechanical Spider is heading to Asia and Australia this autumn having wowed crowds in Bangkok, Miami and Glastonbury this year already.
The Spider has now been packed up for another 9000 mile voyage across the world to break new ground and explore new countries.

We kick proceedings off in glitzy Shanghai. I’m launching a promo campaign for my radio show The Selector on the side of buses across the country for #UKmusiconthego. I play at Haven, a garish club in a converted church with floor-to-ceiling visuals and my own swimming pool, with a silver horse in my dressing room (?!). I’ll return to Shanghai come Monday for Disco Buffet in Jing’an, a mash-up vinyl night broadcast weekly on U-Dance radio.
