SINGAPORE - Some of the biggest names from the dance music world, including Skrillex, Martin Garrix and Porter Robinson, are set to headline Ultra Singapore this year.
The annual outdoor dance music festival, now in its fourth year, will be held on the weekend of June 8 and 9 at the open field next to Marina Bay Sands Tower 1. Last year's edition attracted 41,000 party goers over two days.

Skrillex, whose real name is Sonny Moore, is hitting the festival circuit hard this year, having just finished a huge show at Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Mexico. He will also play at Ultra Korea on June 7 before heading to Singapore.
He will be joined byDutchman Martin Garrix, who currently reigns at the top of the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs list, and American DJ-producer Porter Robinson, who snagged a Best Dance Recording Grammy nomination earlier this year for the track Ghost Voices.
Meanwhile, the Resistance Stage, dedicated to deep house and techno music, will feature the likes of Jamie Jones, Art Department, Eats Everything and Josh Wink.
More acts will be announced in the run-up to show day.
