Heineken Thirst 2012

Heineken Thirst 2012

Tiësto brought his A-game during last year's Thirst with his three-hour set, leaving fans craving for more. Stepping in to fill his shoes this year is Swedish superstar DJ-producer Tim Bergling aka Avicii. The EDM guru just turned 23 in September but has already amassed huge success, including playing at this year's Ultra Music Festival and Lollapalooza, aside from DJ Mag recently ranking him number three on its Top 100 DJs list for 2012.

Joining the mix-master on stage this year are English trance stars Above & Beyond, French electronic duo Justice, Brodinski and Gesaffelstein. Local acts include LapSap, Goldfish and Blink and Mr Nasty & GuruGuru. Previous Found @ Thirst winners Phil K Lee and Tommy Cham with runner-up Nick Haydez will also have separate DJ sets each.

Aside from the stellar lineup, revellers can also look forward to the 50-foot high Wish, a towering trio of art sculptures created by San Francisco artist Robert James. Consisting of 'three contemporary dandelions losing their seeds in the wind', the sculptures are clad in aluminium leaves and mirrored glass, edged with pulsating LEDs that react to the tempo of live music.

Pre-sale tickets are available at Rock Corner outlets. Early bird and Heinekabana tickets are now sold out.
