Marshmello will be coming back to Singapore in December, this time for outdoor dance festival ZoukOut.

The electronic dance music producer and DJ was one of two names announced for the event in a ZoukOut Facebook post on Tuesday (22 August), along with Australian musician and DJ, Flume.

The event is taking place at Siloso Beach on 8 and 9 December, and other guests will be announced closer to the event. Mashmello was previously in Singapore for the Ultra Music Festival in 2016.

The DJ hides his real identity and face with a custom helmet during public appearances, though there is widespread speculation that he is actually American DJ Chis Comstock.

Last year, a guest wearing an outfit similar to DJ Marshmello caused a stir when he appeared at Zouk Singapore. This led to the club being accused of allegedly hiring a fake Marshmello, causing Zouk to clarify that it had not hired the DJ for any event.
