MARQUEE Singapore is bringing the dancefloor to partygoers for its first anniversary with a virtual event headlined by a stellar line-up of international DJ icons Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki and Andrew Rayel on Friday, 22 May.
A first of its kind in Asia, the free event will see the three DJs come together for back-to-back performances on live streaming platforms Zoom and Twitch for music fans in Singapore and beyond.
Noah Tepperberg, Co-founder, Tao Group Hospitality, said: “We knew when we entered Singapore that we were going into a sophisticated nightlife and dining scene, and our product would have to be adjusted and adapted accordingly. It was a lot of leg work and a great partnership with Marina Bay Sands that led us to create something so unique and special. We may be physically apart during this current period in Singapore, but we still hope to bring a slice of MARQUEE’s nightlife to our fans’ homes. We are so grateful to everyone who has made our first year so memorable and we can’t wait to welcome our guests back when we re-open.”
This event will also kick off a new series of virtual clubbing experiences throughout the months of May and June, headlined by world-renowned DJs. The series will feature DJ powerhouses that include Dash Berlin, MarLo, Dannic, Blasterjaxx and Paul Van Dyk. More details on the upcoming series will be announced on MARQUEE’s social channels in the coming weeks.
In the lead-up to the event, the nightclub is rolling out fun interactive activities for fans on social, with a chance to win prizes and be featured live on the night of 22 May. Winners will be announced by 20 May.
Kickstarting the online activities from now till 20 May, is a DIY Headdress Challenge, encouraging fans to create a unique headdress, incorporating elements that remind them of MARQUEE Singapore. Participants have to take a snapshot of themselves donning their DIY headdress or of the headdress itself, and post it on Instagram with @MarqueeSingapore #WePartyPurple.
At the same time, a TikTok Dance Challenge will test fans’ ability to follow a dance routine choreographed by none other than the MARQUEE team of dancers, and add their creative spin to it. Participants will need to share their video on TikTok with #WePartyPurple and on Instagram, tagging @MarqueeSingapore #WePartyPurple .
