Garden Beats is coming back to Fort Canning Park this February and we couldn’t be more excited! Singapore’s pioneering music, arts and conscious living festival focuses on music, art, and nature and is perfect for party peeps who want a different vibe from the late-night scene.
Garden Beats will run from 1pm to 10:30pm on Saturday 29 February and feature amazing artists playing a range of musical genres like indie and electro plus innovative artworks, fab food in the Food Village by foodpanda, and fun wellness workshops.
Groove to FOALS, Crussen, Viken Arman, Running Touch and The Illustrious Blacks as they take over the Garden Stage and Sunshine Stage!. A solid lineup of local acts will also grace the stages including Bongomann, Brendon P, DJ Aurora, James Selva, JustMack, KFC, Orio and Toppings.
Festival-goers can chow down on delicious bites at the Food Village by foodpanda where you can find tons of savoury eats, sweet treats and plant-powered fare. There will be plenty of cool beverages at Conscious Bar and alcoholic beverages will be sold in a variety of concoctions by Monkey Shoulder, Hendrick’s, Peng Wine, Red Bull and Strongbow.
After all noshing, make your way to the Zen Garden to chill and check out apparel at Social Fields for exciting activities like bracelet-making and glitter face-painting by Havaianas, or Art Lane where you can find interactive and visual arts by emerging and established talents. For a bit more motion and sound, head to the Theatre and Dance Pavilion to take in acts by stellar performance groups.
Garden Beats is Singapore’s first carbon-neutral festival and it will feature sustainable initiatives like a single-use plastics ban, vegan food offerings, and Conscious Talks with change-makers and green warriors. The organisers have also teamed up with non-profit organisation One Tree Planted and are offering festival-goers the option to donate US$1 in contribution towards reforestation efforts.
