If the deluge of K-pop concerts in Singapore this year has got you (and your wallet) needing a break, you’re in luck.
Singapore’s largest alternative music festival, Baybeats, is back from Oct 6 to 8 at Esplanade this year – and it’s free. The festival features a line-up of homegrown and international acts, supported by new partnerships formed with overseas music festivals.
This year, Baybeats is partnering with two East Asian festivals, Taiwan’s Golden Melody Awards and Festival (GMA) and Ear Up Music Festival from Hong Kong, to help raise awareness of local talents overseas and profile the festival internationally.
As such, you can expect a bevy of acts from countries like the Philippines, Japan and Thailand electrifying the stages at Singtel Waterfront Theatre, DBS Fountain Outdoor Theatre, Annexe Studio and Concourse.
Some of the acts to look out for include Taiwanese band I Mean Us, local indie veterans The Great Spy Experiment and Japan’s Mass Of The Fermenting Dregs.
