ZoukOut reveals a first look at its elaborate new 3D mainstage
The festival has also finalized its line-up
ZoukOut’s iconic Moon Stage is getting a massive facelift that will see it transform into Singapore’s first ever large scale structural 3D stage.
The hand-carved stage took over 3 months to assemble will stand at 34-meters wide and 18-meters tall and feature a towering lion head that will be supported by 40 strobe lights, 8 lasers, 834 LED panels, CO2 jets, and pyrotechnics to provide the audience with a never before seen, immersive, sound and light experience.
On the lion’s forehead will be Zouk’s symbol of unity, the now symbolic Zouk Eye which, signifies togetherness and oneness through music. As illustrated in the image below, the lion's paws are raised with the intention of guarding over the audience Surrounding the lion centerpiece are finer details of tropical motifs including an Orchid, which is Singapore's national flower.,
The stage will also play tribute to Singapore, reflecting upon the festival’s 17-year establishment in the Lion City.
“ZoukOut has over the years become synonymous among Singaporeans, with many of us having grown up with the brand," said Andrew Li, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zouk Singapore. "As such, we felt that we needed to pay homage to this country which has been ZoukOut’s home for 17 years."
