Following the cancellation of Beach Beats Festival, its organisers Zouk and Ismaya Live from Indonesia are repurposing the same line-up of artists for another event on Aug 9, National Day, called We The Citizens Fest

The event will now be held at Zouk instead of Palawan Green on Sentosa.

The main room will feature the previously announced line-up of English DJ-producer-singer Mark Ronson, Dutch DJ and producer Sam Feldt, Singapore indie singer-songwriter Charlie Lim as well as from Australian acts Hayden James and Ta-ku.

Velvet Underground will showcase a local deejay line-up with the likes of LeNerd, Drem and Marvin Gold, while Zouk veterans Andrew Tang and Matthew will spin at the Velvet lounge.

Phuture, which typically plays hip-hop and electronic dance music, will be transformed into a screening space showing local movies.

The event also marks the final National Day celebrations at Zouk's Jiak Kim outlet before it moves to Clarke Quay later this year.

Tickets for entry to the main room are priced at $51, while entry to Velvet Underground (excluding the Lounge) and Phuture will be free. The event kicks off at 4pm and is restricted to those aged 16 and older.

Beach Beats Festival tickets had cost $78 (early bird) and $118.
