One of the biggest electronic dance music festivals in the Asia-Pacific region, Future Music Festival Asia, will be held in Singapore for the first time at the Changi Exhibition Centre on March 13 and 14 next year.

Organisers for the event, The Livescape Group and Future Music Australia, also confirmed the headline acts for the festival, which is expected to attract 50,000 party-goers over the two days.

Swedish house DJ Avicii, English electronic group The Prodigy, Dutch electro-house DJ Afrojack, English DJ and music producer Fatboy Slim and Australian electronic dance duo Knife Party have been confirmed for the festival, which was held in Kuala Lumpur for the past three years.

Earlier this March, the festival in Kuala Lumpur was cut short after six concert-goers died and 14 people were hospitalised for apparent drug overdose.
