The best music concerts and festivals in Singapore

Mark your calendar for everything from live-streamed intimate gigs to live-on-stage concerts

By Cam Khalid

If your pre-circuit breaker evenings mostly consist of tapping your feet, clapping to the beat and enjoying live shows at Singapore's top music venues, you're in for a treat. Live performances have been given the green light to return to the stage – with small-scale programmes and strict safety measures, no less.

While you save your moshing antics for a future festival, you can still put your hands up in the air (and wave 'em like you just don't care) at a concert hall or in your bedroom. Whether you're looking to kick it with the mainstream or embark on a sonic adventure with the alternative, this month's music calendar is filled with ace local and international acts to catch.

Hydeout: The Prelude


The answer to Singapore's growing appetite for new music experiences, Hydeout is the region's first multi-genre music festival to shake up the scene by packing as much uncurbed fun, global sounds, and eye-catching art in one massive space. While its 2020 debut at Gardens by the Bay was cut short by the circuit breaker, it’s taking a digital spin with an immersive online experience featuring performances set against stunning backdrops that encompass both the virtual and physical realms. The star-studded lineup includes pop starlet Rita Ora, R&B darling Tinashe, EDM poster boy Martin Garrix, progressive house star Nicky Romero, and even Singapore’s very own DJ and producer Myrne.
