One of the oldest and most famous nightclubs in Singapore, Zouk, has been nominated at the first ever Electronic Music Awards (EMAF), taking place on 14 April at the SLS Hotel in Los Angeles.
Focusing on the world of EDM, the inaugural award has announced the nominees for its categories which include Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Festival of the Year, DJ of the Year and more.
The Singaporean nightclub, which is owned by Genting Hong Kong, will be running for the Club of the Year category, competing against other clubs like Amnesia Ibiza, Fabric London, Omnia Vegas and Sound LA.
The award ceremony features some of the biggest names in the EDM industry including Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers, Skrillex, Diplo and Major Lazer as well as newcomers Kygo and DJ Snake.
