Dubbed as an electronic picnic festival, the third edition of one of the coolest music extravaganzas in town since it’s inception last year will be happening on March 18, 1pm to 10.30pm at Fort Canning Park and here are four reasons why you should be there.

#1: What’s a picnic without your own home-cooked goodies

Yes, this music cum picnic festival allows you to devour your own pre-packed snacks on festival grounds at a special area known as Garden Beats Electronic Picnic Fields – a strict rule most music festivals (i.e: Zoukout and Ultra) abide by.

#2: The incredible food options

Get ready for scrumptious delights courtesy of Deliveroo’s Culinary Fields. Indulge in Middle Eastern cuisine from Fat Prince Kebabs or treat yourself to kick-ass sandwiches from Park Bench Deli’s. Craving for a poke (a Hawaiian raw fish delicacy) bowl? Loloku has got you covered.

#3: The sensational line-up of DJs

Prepare to lose yourself to a mix of feel-good and heart-thumping rhythms by an array of international and local acts such as German duo Tube & Berger, known for their groovy remixes and electronica beats, and African DJ Ava Asante whose suave deep house beats are heavily influenced by her own heritage and culture.

Top local talents include DJ KFC (a resident at Loof and OverEasy), Brandon P (Club Kyo resident known for experimental club bangers) and Julian Brochard (resident DJ at The Council best known for his deep electro beats) who will all be spinning alongside an eclectic line-up of DJs.

#4: The party doesn’t end there
