The largest free alternative music festival in Singapore, Baybeats presents a fist-pumping line-up showcasing prominent Singapore, regional and international acts, covering genres including folk, pop, metal, post-rock, emo, punk, electro and everything in between.
In its 17th edition, Baybeats features two new music experiences. The first is a collaboration with EMONIGHTSG, to present a late-night party at Esplanade Annexe Studio. Secondly, Baybeats expands its music language to include hip hop and rap, which are rarely presented at the festival. These include performances by Singapore’s Akeem Jahat and Yung Raja x Fariz Jabba, as well as Zamaera from Malaysia.
This year marks the last time Baybeats’ Powerhouse Stage will be hosting performances. One of the festival’s main stages, the Powerhouse stage is erected specially for Baybeats annually since 2007. The space where the Powerhouse Stage sits is where Esplanade’s new waterfront theatre will be.
Through the Baybeats Budding initiatives, we gather the best of our homegrown talent not only in music-making but also other creative fields of music journalism, gig photography, video arts and more. This year, six bands were selected for the Baybeats Budding Bands mentorship programme. Trust The Chaos, Glassmouth, Osr313, Dreebsby, Coming Up Roses and Sangriento will make their debut at Baybeats 2018.
So reach out, touch faith and rock on at Singapore’s very own alternative music festival, proudly presented by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.
