On this week: club kids will undoubtedly have marked Zoukout ages ago, Singapore’s (reportedly) first sustainable Christmas market, a floral crown workshop, a ’70s themed Saturday Night Fever party and the unveiling to the public of revered local architecture firm WOHA’s first foray into homeware. Sounds like quite a diverse list of things to check out, if you ask me.
#1: Zoukout 2017
Biggest. annual. party. in. Singapore. Yes, we are talking about the hotly anticipated music festival by the beach – Zoukout. The huge spectacle organised by Zouk features an exciting line-up from hottest international DJs (think Axwell & Ingrosso and Marshmello) to their very own resident Djs and even regional acts (fans of hip-hop: you guys will be thrilled to know that Higher Brothers will be making an appearance as well).
Tickets are priced at $138 to $148 for advance tickets or $158 to $168 for event day tickets and $228 for advance 2-day festival passes, buy them here. Siloso Beach, Sentosa
December 8 and 9
#2: Saturday Night Fever (screening + 70s party)
Need to kill your colleagues, sorry I mean destress? There’s no better way to get groovy than at this special screening of the 1977 disco classic film and a ’70s themed party afterwards. Tip: people really get into dressing up for these themed parties held regularly at The Projector, so if you’ve ever felt like getting into character (though hopefully not as Hannibal Lecter), this is it.
BONUS: 2 pairs of B Res tickets for the Bee Gees Gold MBS performance on DEC 15 2017 ( worth $218/pair) are up for grabs. Winners will be picked among online ticket purchases for Saturday Night Fever.
December 9, 8.30pm – 12.30am (movie starts at 8.30pm y’all)

#3: Ektory's Floral Headcrown Workshop
Popular local paper art studio Ektory (they’ve worked with the likes of Delvaux, SK-II, Bvlgari and Cle de Peau) is throwing a series of workshops this month and the one this weekend focuses on teaching you how to make a floral crown. Great accessory, especially with all the parties coming up this month and also, Laneway in January. Doesn’t matter if you’re a complete newbie, all materials will be provided and hey, it’s a class, not a competition. You do have to register on their website first, head here for more details.
December 9, 2-4pm, $90 per pax
Ektory studio @ 50 Niven Road
#4: The First Sustainable Christmas Market
Styling themselves the “first” sustainable Christmas market, we’re all for it if it helps to promote awareness of the importance of environmental sustainability. There’ll be more than 20 vendors selling everything from artisanal bread and coffee, carbon-neutral beers to organic produce sourced from the likes of Nepal, Tasmania, Lebanon and Greece. Perfect for picking up a gift for your eco-conscious friends. Find out more here.
