From 19 to 21 April 2019, brace yourself for 3 days of what could possibly be the biggest Asian music festivals to grace the fine sands of the Siloso Beach shores — it’s none other than the Skechers Sundown Festival hosted by Red Spade Entertainment!
The music festival will feature a plethora of activities — imagine over 50 music artistes on 3 stages over 3 days, curated art installations, film screenings, market bazaar, street food and fringe entertainment. The only question to beg here is: how does that not sound like a recipe for the best weekend ever?
The Skechers Sundown Festival is aiming to unite people with curious and imaginative spirits, and is made for anyone who is deeply fond of Asian music and its diverse entertainment scene. The festival is programmed to celebrate Asian excellence, and promote its values and spirit — all through music, food, art, and culture.
Amazing! Who can I look forward to see?
Expect some of the biggest names in Asian music to bless your ears. We’re talking talents and musical acts like:
- K-Pop boyband iKON
- ‘Made In China’ Chengdu hip-hop sensations Higher Brothers
- Dutch-Filipino electronic musician Laidback Luke who boasts an extensive portfolio of productions and collaborations with some of the biggest names in the EDM sphere!
Of course, the list doesn’t end there. Additional forces in the spectrum Asian music include DJ Soda, Henry Fong, MFBTY, Shogun, TOKiMONSTA and more! In fact, you can also look forward to seeing homegrown acts such as Charlie Lim, Fariz Jabba, Yung Raja and Sam Rui perform live!
You said there were more than just music…what are they?
Marketplace and street food stalls will also be available at the venue, and will commence operations from Friday (19 Apr) at 3pm and Sat/Sun (20, 21 Apr) at 12pm.
Besides that, if you’re a movie buff, you’re in for a treat! You can catch the screening of a couple of award-winning films by Singaporean independent film distributor, Anticipate Pictures. We’re talking about ‘Oh Lucy!’, the runner-up at the Cinéfondation at Cannes Film Festival, and a dark animated comedy (Pulp Fiction-esque) ‘Have A Nice Day’, which has bagged a Golden Horse Award win.
If you ever wanted to experience the camping part of festivals, then here’s your chance! You will be able to sleep over at the site, at two campsites: Freedom Camp, a zone perfect if you’re keen on pitching your own tent, as well as Campville, which offers a full-fledged glamping experience.

- 3D2N Campville experience: $1,100 (max of 4 pax)
