Bringing the best of Singapore talents to our audiences
Storming fresh into their first public performance after a third-place win at the annual dance showcase competition Super 24, local dance troupe BLVCKARMY will present an explosive and energetic item, also featuring percussionists from one of Singapore’s largest cajón schools Arthur Choo and BEAT’ABOX.
Sustaining the momentum are next-gen stars like Dru Chen, Glen Wee, Astronauts, Shak & The Baits, Yung Raja and Fariz Jabba, Azura Goh and Joshua Marc, who will bring a palette of groovy tunes ranging from RandB, funk to pop. Mediacorp artistes Ayden Sng, Daryl-Ann, Jarrell Huang and Fang Rong will also join the stage to serenade music fans. There will be sizzling performances from actor-singer Benjamin Kheng, songbird Aisyah Aziz and ‘Papa Rock’ Ramli Sarip before the night reaches its dramatic climax with electronic music singer-songwriter Jasmine Sokko, the first home-grown act to win the Best Southeast Asia Act award at the 2019 MTV Europe Music Awards.
Celebrating sustainable living
