Well, well. Aren’t you guys excited? We’re sure you’ve already heard by now that December is going to be massive, what with the mad hectic festive season and also, ALSO..the parties. And yes, our friends, Future Sound Asia, is at it again with the crazy planning for the annual Heineken Thirst event, slated to happen on 8th December 2012 (Saturday) at Sepang International Circuit!

Expanding into new dimensions of music and creativity with a series of exclusives, this year Heineken Thirst brings you TWO stages of passion and excitement against a backdrop of towering light sculptures and creative wish fulfillment. Some of us have waited all year for this and even as the acts are being announced sporadically, it doesn’t get any less exciting.

This year promises to develop those themes ever further at a specially designed Heineken Thirst festival site featuring some of the latest innovations in creative technologies, digital landscaping and interactive collaborative installation pieces.

In another Heineken Thirst exclusive, the festival will feature a huge sculptural centrepiece in the form of Robert James Buchholz’s Wish, fresh from its appearance at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, a 17-metre high installation consisting of three LED lit flowers that pulse in time to the music.

Add to that the presence of the world’s leading DJ celebrity snapper Rukes, the self-taught LA based photographer who tours the EDM festivals of the world with his lens and you have the recipe for a night of supercharged thrill-seeking and discovery on December 8 at Heineken Thirst, Malaysia’s leading electronic music festival.

Yeah. You could say that Malaysia’s leading dance party planners/organizers definitely know how to throw a good party and spoil the crowd silly. Now what are you gonna do?
