Beach Beats Festival, a music festival jointly presented by Singapore's ZoukOut and Indonesia's Djakarta Warehouse Project, has been cancelled less than a month before it is supposed to take place.

The two organisers, who are behind the biggest dance festivals in the region, said the cancellation was due to "unforseen circumstances".

Scheduled to be held at Palawan Green on Sentosa on Aug 9, National Day, the inaugural festival was to have featured names such as English DJ-producer-singer Mark Ronson, Dutch DJ and producer Sam Feldt, Singapore indie singer-songwriter Charlie Lim as well as Australian acts Hayden James and Ta-ku.

In a statement on Friday (July 15), the organisers added that plans for a new event featuring the same line-up "are in the works, and further details will be released at a later date".

 

The festival would have marked a first-time collaboration between Singapore nightlife stalwart Zouk and Indonesian events and entertainment company Ismaya Live.
