Heineken Thirst 2012 Coming This December !

So I had the chance to catch Heineken Thirst 2011 last year where the great DJ Tiesto was in Sepang in what I deemed as one of the really great rave party. Check out my previous writeup (Heineken Thirst Tiesto 2011 Sepang) Exactly one year later, come this 8th December 2012, Heineken Thirst 2012, Malaysia’s leading electronic music festival will be back whether you're ready for it or not!

Expanding into new dimensions of music and creativity with a series of exclusives, this year Heineken Thirst brings to us two stages of passion and excitement against a backdrop of towering light sculptures. This year's star line-up is pretty cool too, with twin headliners in the shape of Swedish house supremo Avicii and French electronica pioneers Justice across two arenas, both playing their debut Malaysian sets.

Alongside these international icons, a line up of top-flight international and local artists will be bringing Heineken Thirst to its pulsating climax. Progressive electro experts Above & Beyond need little introduction to Malaysia’s Electronic Dance Music fans. This globe-spanning UK-based trio ranks Malaysia as one of its favourite destinations, ripping the roof off whenever they appear.

Joining the stellar line up of artistes to perform at Heineken Thirst 2012 is underground favourite Brodinski whose mix of dirty house and electro and unceasing work ethic have made him a firm favourite on indoor and outdoor stages worldwide. Not forgetting Gesaffelstein whose cosmic electro nods to the 1980s darkwave synth movement.

Not forgetting our local talented artistes, with a reputation for nurturing talent and connecting it to the leading edge of international music trends, the local talent reads like a who’s who of Heineken’s talent development achievements of the last decade. Goldfish & Blink, Malaysia’s first EDM superstars will be drawing a capacity crowd at the main arena, while Thirst winner DJ Blink’s underground electronic project LapSap, along with DJ XU, will be rocking the second stage.

Then there’s Mr Nasty & GuruGuru, featuring another Thirst winner, Hoong (part of Altered Image), and Found @ Thirst alumni Phil K Lee (Champion, 2010), Tommy Cham (Champion, 2011) and Nick Haydez (Finalist, 2011), which all adds up into a line up of incredible Heineken discoveries. Not to mention Jee Hoe and Hypeembeats whose fresh-faced indie, pumping electro and techno have rocked everything from dark room club nights to events like Heineken Green Room and outdoor shows.

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.
