Heineken Thirst 2013 – Final Line Up


Heineken Thirst 2013 Unfolds : Final Line Up

Two massive stages – Green Stage and Star Arena – of uncompromising and unconventional music experiences, the line up includes a thrilling mix of established names and emerging leftfield electronic artists from both the international and local music scenes.
“The music, the stars, the design and the innovation of Heineken Thirst are only part of the story of its success,” comments Jessie Chuah, Heineken Marketing Manager. “What truly differentiates Heineken Thirst is the people – music fans from all walks of life – who join us to bring their energy and open minds. Heineken creates the spark: it’s our fans who bring the night to life.”
One of the highlights of any Heineken Thirst is the custom-built festival site and the bars that really propel the festival into a class of its own. Once you walk through the doors of Heineken Thirst you walk into a world where everything – from the music to the site itself – reflects our commitment to creativity, excellence and progressive new music experiences across the twin spectacles of the Green Stage and the Star Arena.

Lighting up the Green Stage, Heineken Thirst headliner, Parisian socialite David Guetta, joining him at Heineken Thirst’s Green Stage is Holland’s Afrojack. Afrojack has the enviable task of building the crowd to fever pitch for David Guetta. Also is a group of fast emerging electronica stars. Award-winning former songwriters for hire, Australia’s Nervo.

Closer to home, Heineken Thirst regulars Goldfish and Blink will demonstrate why they’re Malaysia’s first EDM superstars. And it’s a Heineken Thirst debut for Brains and The Eye (B.A.T.E.), the hotly tipped duo who topped JUICE magazine’s Best New DJs of 2012 poll.

Headlining the Star Arena stage is W&W, the Dutch duo that is a confirmed favourite with Malaysia’s outdoor music fans. Mixing trance and EDM in equal measures. Holland’s R3HAB has been identified as the next step in the evolution of the Dutch House genre He’s joined by UK EDM legend Example, he will bring a touch of UK street style to Heineken Thirst. Adding to the ‘you saw it here first’ vibe of Heineken Thirst’s Star Arena is the Malaysian debut of French nu-disco pioneer Madeon. A 19- year old tech geek, Madeon has a reputation for thrilling live shows. His love of new technology allows him to constantly break new boundaries as he attempts to redefine the role of the DJ.

Xu & Bunga x Twilight Actiongirl

XU needs no introduction to fans of Heineken Thirst. Last year he rocked the Star Arena with his LapSap partner DJ Blink. This year he brings his own rough-edged take on electro and EDM to the stage, this time solo. Expect the unexpected! Also flying alone from his Twilight Actiongirl cohorts, BUNGA will open the Star Arena with an inspired take on the sundown set.
Following the success of his appearance at Heineken Thirst 2012 the world’s top dance music photographer Rukes makes a welcome return to the event to capture the excitement and inspired craziness of this year’s festival via his website www.rukes.com.
Heineken Thirst unfolds over the next few weeks. W’ll be asking our music fans to participate in a range of activities designed to stamp their imprint and personality on Heineken Thirst this December. This personalisation, along with the experiences and moments we’ll be creating during the night itself is what separates Heineken Thirst from other music festivals. It’s a spirit of restless evolution and constant surprises that perfectly sums up the spirit of Heineken Thirst.
