You Can Party At Haw Par Villa For One Night Only With Spanish DJ John Talabot

Haw Par Villa turns into a club for one night in April with DJs like John Talabot spinning the decks for Escape 56's "666th" Anniversary.
11 April 2023

Haw Par Villa is one of Singapore’s most iconic cultural parks. Embodying both a whimsical fantasy and haunting atmosphere, it’s a special place where visitors can peek into the 10 Courts of Hell while remaining safely aboveground. While it’s usually meant as a theme park, revellers who love electronic music can party on the grounds for one night only on April 16th.

You might have heard of Escape 56, a pop-up party series that takes place at secret locations and not your usual clubs. Think spots like the old St. James Power Station and rural warehouses across Singapore.

For their upcoming 6th party - dubbed their “666th Anniversary” - the location is not so secret, but it’s one that people don’t usually associate with DJs and late-night dancing: Haw Par Villa.

When the sun sets on 15th April 2023, Haw Par Villa will be transformed from a serene park into an electrifying field with strobe lights, lasers, and speakers with enough bass to rock the gates of hell.
