It is with outmost regret that we are announcing the cancellation of the Hostess Club Weekender Singapore.
Due to the second day Tokyo headline artist falling through at visa deadline time, and another artist on that program being unable to secure visa approval, the Tokyo Hostess Club Weekender has had to be very reluctantly canceled.
Given the Tokyo Weekender is the anchor event of the Hostess Club circuit, which also helps fund the entire Asia outing, this meant the tour itself has come to be untenable.
We would like to offer our sincere apologies to fans who have bought tickets to the show – every effort has been made to find a solution to retain the regional shows without Tokyo, however a combination of political unrest and sponsor withdrawals in the region as well as just moderate ticket sales in Singapore ultimately made this unrealistic to pursue.
We are working closely with our ticketing agent eventClique to ensure all ticket holders are refunded swiftly. For enquiries regarding this please contact:- Email: email@example.com Tel: +65 6602 9900

This is the second Hostess Club Weekender in a row that has been cancelled. It’s going to take something very extra-special if the event is going to regain the confidence of concert-goers.
Next Saturday (14th June) will see the 2nd SG edition of the Hostess Club Weekender over at Infinite Studios. In carrying out research on Cat Power (who will be headlining the day), I had come across information that Chan Marshall had been performing solo earlier in the year. That necessitated a text message to Hostess Asia’s Nikki Mahmood-Chee about whether Marshall would be playing solo or with a band in Singapore. And in a quick exchange of texts, I gathered that it is indeed going to be an exciting day at the Hostess Club Weekender!
First up, Cat Power will be playing with a band and that figuring out her setlist should be intriguing. Perfume Genius will be playing a new set, previewing material from his new album. Incidentally, all solo performers (like Perfume Genius and SOHN) will be backed by full bands! And speaking of new material, Blonde Redhead will also be sharing songs from its upcoming new album.
Hostess Asia have announced the addition of British outfit TOY (above) to the existing lineup of Cat Power, Blonde Redhead, Perfume Genius and Sohn. Hostess Asia have also confirmed the venue at Infinite Studios, 21 Media Circle. Tickets are now available from eventclique.com.
Check out the band’s latest album – Join the Dots – at Spotify below!
It is an exciting time to be a music lover in Singapore as leading pan-Asian independent music company Hostess Entertainment Unlimited launches its unique live series Hostess Club Weekender in Singapore!
As part of Hostess’s continuing regional expansion, HCW will land in Fort Canning Park on Saturday February 22nd next year. The inaugural show in Singapore will feature critics’ darlings The National, Mogwai as well as up-and-comers King Krule, Asgeir and Buke & Gase to make the most compelling, irresistible and fresh lineup.
