Hong Kong pop sensation G.E.M. is set to rock the shores of Singapore with her edgily-titled world tour X.X.X., which stands for 'more to eXpose, more to eXpect and more eXciting'. The Cantopop singer will be belting out her greatest hits and showcasing her guitar and drumming skills while a gigantic LED screen provides a Victorian-style steam punk theme and a '70s-style party scene.
The Gathering goes big this year with its first festival, featuring international acts such as Belle & Sebastian, Caribou, How to Dress Well, Temples and Real Estate. Local singer-songwriter Charlie Lim and twee pop band Pleasantry represent the Lion City. Doors open at noon.
