Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

What better way to discover a new pool of talent than at the city’s annual alternative music festival? From post-rock and metal to folk and hip-hop, Baybeats returns to the Esplanade from August 23 to 25 with brand new sounds and faces from Singapore and around the region.

A new wave of eclectic sounds – think indie-rock, hip-hop, psychedelic-rock, math-rock, funk and more – is set to dominate the new LiveWire stage at the Esplanade Forecourt Garden. On the opposite side, the Open Stage spotlights acoustic, unplugged sets. The Baybeats Powerhouse stage – last seen along the Esplanade Waterfront last year – may be gone, but the edgier, heavier sounds will be resonated across the Arena (Esplanade Outdoor Theatre).

This year's line-up includes local bands like indie-rock outfit Stopgap, indie-pop trio Sobs, groove-rock band T-Rex, metal band Rudra, as well as regional acts like metalheads Slapshock (the Philippines), psychedelic-rock three-piece Sundays & Cybele (Japan), rap starlet Ramengvrl (Indonesia), funk 'n' bass group Se So Neon (Korea), and rapper Aklo (Japan).
