Get lowdown on the best parties to hit this April. Hint: think a water festival, international DJs, the greatest 90s hits and the Asian debut of a New York nightclub.
It’s one big rave party this April as the month brings you anthemic dance music by local and international DJs, a party in a water park and Marquee Singapore! Stay tuned for more parties underway…
Marquee Singapore Grand Opening Month
12 April onwards
Every hedonist in their right mind will be counting down the days to the opening of Singapore’s largest nightclub. Making its Asian debut right here in Singapore, the highly-raved New York nightclub will have a sprawling space of 2,300 metres, dramatic 70-feet-high ceilings and an eight-armed Ferris Wheel which you can actually ride on. To celebrate the opening, over 10 popular names in the clubbing scene including Afrojack, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Above and Beyond and Kaskade will be strutting their stuff all through the month! One thing’s for sure, this is going to be MASSIVE.
Marquee Singapore Grand Opening Month, various timings, tickets are available online or at the door; 2 Bayfront Avenue, #B1- 67, Singapore 018956
Songkran Music Festival
We’re not sure if this kind of ‘April showers’ would bring May flowers, but celebrating the iconic water festival at a water park sounds fun. Come dressed to get wet ‘cos Wild Wild Wet is transforming into a wet party arena complete with water and light effects and blasting water jets. Enjoy hip hop, electro, big-room, trap, open format tracks spun by DJs Lincey, Inquisitive, Tinc and Lenerd and headlined by Dutch DJ Quintino. Rave in the tsunami pool and fuel up with craft beers from The Bar by Beerfest Asia and food trucks by SawadeeCup and Zeroplusone. It’s going to be one helluva party.
Songkran Music Festival, 5pm-11pm, Wild Wild Wet, 1 Pasir Ris Close, Singapore 519599

To really get you in the mood, iconic visuals from 90s Hollywood – think Titanic, Pulp Fiction, The Matrix and Terminator 2 – will be projected on a full-screen wall right behind the DJ. Also, the cover charge includes two free drinks instead of one.
