    Kygo, who will be performing here for the first time, revealed in a Twitter Q&A last year that he was born in Singapore and spent a few years here as his father worked in the shipping industry.

    The mega dance music festival - which will be held on Sept 10 and 11 at a venue dubbed Ultra Park at 1 Bayfront Avenue - will also see the likes of Swedish house-music duo Axwell and Ingrosso, Dutch DJ Afrojack, French up-and-comer DJ Snake and Canadian producer Deadmau5 spinning.

    Other artists announced include Asian-American dance music collective Far East Movement, London electronic trio Nero as well as supporting acts Jauz and Marshmello.

    Early-bird tickets, which went on sale in January, are sold out but advance two-day tickets at US$160 (S$215) are still available, say organisers.

    Premium tickets, which include express entry lanes and premium access to dedicated restrooms and food-and-beverage stalls, are US$185 each.
