• Baybeats 2020 Goes Online!

    A festival well known for mosh pits and a good ol ruckus ventures forth into a new online landscape. Baybeats Online takes shape in a bite-sized format, with intimate and stripped-down sets with a diverse range of artists. While the live festival has been postponed to 68 Nov, this special online edition is put together to keep spirits up.

    Split into five different segments (Baybeats Unplugged, In Bed with Baybeats, Chapalang Sessions, Observation Deck and #BaybeatsThrowback) covering a range of both pre-recorded and live streamed sessions, the festival aims to bring the indie alternative experience straight to your screens. Look out for performances with a personal touch, panel discussions and informal chats with artists/members of the Singapore music scene.

    Known as the biggest free alternative music festival in Singapore and the region, Baybeats is an annual event that presents a fist-pumping line-up of prominent Singapore and international acts, covering genres including folk, pop, R&B, hip hop, metal, post-rock, emo, punk, electro and everything in between. Presented by Esplanade, the 19th edition of Baybeats features both an online edition and live festival in Aug and Nov respectively.

    The Baybeats Budding initiative continues, where 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. Stay tuned for the release of 2020s budding bands, writers and photographers.

    Rock on at Baybeats ! Well see you online.
