Asquared’s set of nu disco and progressive trance kept party goers in the groove as everyone eagerly waited for the main party arena to open. In the meantime, guests kept busy by capturing their “Hennessy Moments” at the Fotobox booths, which printed out their photos and uploaded them on Facebook as mementos of H-Artistry.
Come 9pm, the beautiful Julie Woon welcomed the crowd into the main party arena where the towering LED backdrop of the stunning H-Artistry stage counted down to the start of the show. The countdown culminated with an electrifying laser show and striking LED visuals, which kicked off the night’s performances. Enter 24HERBS, who surprised party goers by taking the stage from amongst the crowd. The Hong Kong hip hop outfit was bursting with energy, drawing the crowd in with their infectious stage presence as they demonstrated the credibility of Canto hip hop.
Their performance included hit tracks like “Do You Know Me”, “Fashionista” as well as “Wonderland”, which featured Astro Star Quest champion Alexis Chean in the first H-Artistry collaboration of the night. 24HERBS, anchored by the English speaking SIR JBS, alongside LMF legends Phat and Kit, took an intermission to greet the H-Artistry crowd and threw out 24HERBS Snapbacks into a rousing audience. A cheeky performance of the hit “Hu Ge” brought their performance to an end, which marked the beginning of the EDM journey for the rest of the H-Artistry evening.
他们带来了《Do You Know Me》、《Fashionista》以及《Wonderland》等曲目，并且与Astro新秀大赛冠军Alexis Chean联手呈现了当晚第一场H-Artistry合作演出。廿四味成员包括受英文教育的SIR JBS以及LMF传奇人物Phat和Kit，他们施展浑身解数让H-Artistry参与者陷入疯狂状态。最后，他们以一曲《Hu Ge》为表演画下句点，并且为Hennessy 炫音之乐继续引爆更精彩的节目。
With the dimming of stage lights, Dennis Lau – clad in a laser-projecting jacket – took the stage with his electric violin, bringing the crowd to an all-new high as he started off with a violin introduction of Swedish House Mafia’s hit “Don’t You Worry Child”. Australian DJ and Producer Andy Murphy took the decks, bringing the prelude to its peak before Alexis Chean took the stage once again to belt out the vocals of the popular dance anthem. From the cheers of the crowd, this H-Artistry collaboration could perhaps be ranked among the best in the history of H-Artistry.

Taking over from Andy was Singapore’s biggest female DJ export Nicole Chen, who brought her popular style ofElectro House and Dirty Dutch onto the H-Artistry stage. Both DJs’ sets, bolstered in intervals by a gorgeous dance crew and breathtaking laser projections, shot the energy levels through the roof at H-Artistry as party goers danced through the night with glasses of Hennessy V.S.O.P in hand.
