GastroBeats is back this year from June 1 to 25, serving up top-notch food, music and vibes – a no-brainer recipe for a splendid good time. Over four weekends, experience this vibrant festival, held as part of i Light Singapore 2023 and presented by DBS, with over 50 local food and beverage vendors, live music performances, exciting games, and even towering bouncy castles. 

This year’s festival promises to deliver an ultimate culinary extravaganza, emphasising on the diverse flavours of Singapore with its wide selection of street food and signature dishes. However, it stretches beyond local with thematic curated food streets such as a Taiwan Food Street and Thailand Food Street – both featuring only the best from each country. Also, if you’re looking to take things to the next level, then be sure to participate in their all-new food eating competition Gastrobeats Chomp Champs and put up a fight against Singapore's #1 competitive eater, Zermatt Neo. Registration for the competition opens end-May.

You’ll also be happy to serenade your ears while delighting your taste buds with a captivating line-up of talented local musicians, artists, and performers – think 53A, Jack & Rai, Shirlyn + The UnXpected, and other exciting names. From emerging sensations to industry pioneers, their diverse line-up offers an incredible mix of pop, rock, jazz, hip hop, and more. 

Also, one for the young hearted – more fun awaits at Kiztopia, a fantastical space-themed carnival playground for all to embark on an out-of-this-world adventure designed to entertain and thrill visitors of all ages, from toddlers to young adults. Prepare for an array of exhilarating attractions, including claw machines, captivating carnival games, and towering inflatable obstacle courses. 

Partners DBS Bank and foodpanda will also be having their very own activation of interactive games and multi-sensory experiences. This includes a light showcase with kinetic energy-powered rowing machines together with Instagram installations.  

Events and activities will happen from 4pm to 11pm. General admission is free. For more information and updates on GastroBeats, visit their site here
