We've just about gotten over the cry-face we had when we heard Festival Music Festival Asia (FMFA) will be moving out of Malaysia. Last month's news that it'll be held just across the causeway in Singapore assuaged us a little, and now that the first wave line up has been announced, our spirits are starting to lift again. 

Dates have been confirmed for 13 and 14 March, when Southeast Asia's largest music festival will find its new home in Changi Exhibition Centre. Early bird tickets are on sale now, so get booking. We're pretty sure you won't want to miss Afrojack, Avicii, Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy. Yes, they're all a part of what organisers Livescape are calling their "biggest line up to date" along with:

Art Department
Bassjackers
Blasterjaxx
Carnage
Example
Gorgon City
Knife Party
Nero
Robin Schulz
Sigma
Tchami

The first phase of regional acts announced include Bud Culture, Dangerdisko, H3, Terence C, Mr Nasty & Guruguru from Malaysia; Andrew T, DJ Rah, Nez and Ya5th from Singapore and Indonesia's Bottlesmoker . See the full announcement from Livescape above. The next wave will be announced in January 2015.

If this first vid is anything to go by, it can only get better. Better start wearing in those dancing shoes.
