Music Festivals: Baybeats Singapore

Music Festivals: Baybeats Singapore

Baybeats, the annual alternative music festival that showcases an eclectic range of folk, rock, pop, metal, post-rock, emo, punk, and electro music by local and regional acts… just what we need to kill the mid-year boredom here in Singapore!

The biggest of its kind in Southeast Asia, it is a unique experience that brings aficionados of different tastes and personalities together.

It is also a platform for nurturing home grown talents Baybeats actively promotes new local bands in its Auditions programme. Through mentorship by notable industry players, the top eight are given the opportunity to perform alongside seasoned acts and reach out to a wider audience. The successes of the Budding Photographers and recently established Budding Writers programmes also allow aspiring gig photographers and music journalists an avenue to hone their skills.

X-mini first featured band Cashew Chemists, will also be performing there at the Arena (Outdoors Theatre) on Saturday, 7 to 7.30pm.

Baybeats will also be “reuniting” with the past Baybeats bands as part of commemorating 10 years of independent music, in conjunction with Esplanade’s 10th Anniversary.

So come join us at the alternative music festival of the year! See the full line up of the festival here.
