We were (and still are) quite mystified by this lineup. Cambodian Space Project is a psychedelic rock band, whose style is steeped in Retro-Pop and most of their songs are in the Khmer language! (Not quite the formula to draw in the local hipstas, eh?)
2016 – the year that has finally seen Singapore-English pop acts headlining at venues that were previously beyond them. In June, Gentle Bones performed at two sold out nights at the Esplanade Concert Hall (capacity: 1,600). On 22nd July it is the turn of The Sam Willows to expand the boundaries of what a Singapore-English pop act can achieve by playing at The Coliseum, Resort World Sentosa – a venue that can hold 5,000 people, although record label Sony Music expects about 3,000 fans to attend that night.
Just announced: pop-rock band Imagine Dragons and electro-pop artist Halsey added to the 2016 F1 Singapore lineup.
Finally, it’s showtime for DEON in Tokyo – share the experience!
So stoked that the first day of Baybeats Open Stage went swimmingly! Thanks to The Esplanade, the wonderful crew, Josh and Jaz, the awesome artists and everyone who turned up. One more time today from 5.30pm!
Latest News: Gilded Edge has had to pull out due to unforeseen circumstances so we are thankful to Chris Brass who has agreed to come off from the bench to fill in!
Last but definitely not least, Baybeats Open Stage will also bring you CLEVE and SUPERSECT!
One day away! Two more artists you should check out!!

Music fans of all ages will have loads to look forward to when Singapore GP drives into town from 16 to 18 September.
Singer-songwriter, Birdy, first captured audiences with her hauntingly beautiful cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love”, at the tender age of 14.
Doves & Ravens presents Wonder LIVE!, as the pop-rock outfit launches its debut album, Wonder.
As much as we would confess to an aversion to what passes for pop music in 2016, the UK singer-songwriter Jessie J has always intrigued with her songwriting and unconventional style. There is a genuine earthy quality about Jessie J amidst the obligatory glitz and glamour of modern pop that endears, somewhat.
Back in 2015, we reviewed the Swervedriver comeback album, I Wasn’t Born To Lose You.
“Yet another welcome 90s rock reunion. Though frontman Adam Franklin has been delivering competent 90s-channeling modern rock for some time now, it’s a pleasure to have the shoegaze pioneers back together and doing what they do best. Essential for all post-punk revivalist hipsters.”
After the appearances of British dream-pop rockers Slowdive and Ride to enthusiastic audiences, it makes sense for the reformed Swervedriver to come our way as well. Especially when today’s youngsters revere the modern-day post-punk revival bands you’d find at Laneway or Neon Lights.
Date: 15th June
Venue: Hood Bar & Cafe
Our very own Cosmic Child provides the support.

With the likes of Laneway Festival and Neon Lights Festival providing healthy competition, Singapore’s original alternative music festival, Baybeats, returns with a lineup of regional acts that will fit almost every discerning alternative music fan’s taste. Kudos to The Esplanade!

Another year, another Rachael Yamagata gig in Singapore. It’s an annual event where Yamagata’s diehard fans gather to celebrate her music (she was last here at November’s Neon Lights Festival).
We loved Bandwagon Riverboat last time out! Great music in a unique setting. What’s more, the the boat rockin’ and rollin’ made it easy to groove naturally! Kudos!!
No surprise perhaps that the kind folks at Bandwagon have decided to expand the event to TWO days, with a cracking lineup to match!
So what are you waiting for? Book them tickets now before they are sold out!
See you there!!
