Ever since starting out 15 years ago, Urbanscapes has grown from a one-day event at a bar into a two-week festival held all over the city.

The festival returns this year with its largest music line-up ever. Kicking off the two-week festival will be the HOAX music showcase featuring some of the city’s best young talents such as lurkgurl and Zamaera, among others. Over three weekends, there will be concerts headlined by Stars and Rabbit, Mew, Clean Bandit, TTNG, Yellow Fang and Cigarettes After Sex. The festival will close with a block party at The Row with performances by synth-punk duo Crystal Castles and South Korean indie act hyukoh.

Let's also not forget that Urbanscapes is actually an all-rounded creative arts festival, so don't forget to check out the art exhibitions, markets and food events happening throughout. Consider May sorted.
