Singapore’s largest alternative music festival is back this year, bigger and better (and still free for all to enjoy)! Held from 6 – 8 Oct 2023, the 22nd edition of Baybeats is one not to be missed by music lovers as Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay presents an exciting line-up of homegrown and international acts, supported by new partnerships formed with overseas music festivals as well as Principal Sponsor Keen.
Baybeats remains committed to celebrating and supporting the Singapore music community. We are privileged to be in partnership this year with two esteemed East Asian festivals, Taiwan’s Golden Melody Awards and Festival (GMA) and Ear Up Music Festival from Hong Kong, giving us the opportunity to raise awareness of our local talents overseas and profile the festival internationally.
Complementing the vibrant music performances is the Baybeats festival village. It returns to the Esplanade Lawn, outside Singtel Waterfront Theatre with a lepak area at the Esplanade Courtyard, which offers festival goers a space to relax and recharge (and check out the latest KEEN and our unique Baybeats merchandise too!).
Last but not least, a huge shoutout to the young writers, photographers, emcees and musicians of our Baybeats Budding Programmes. As we speak, they’re probably working hard behind the scenes, honing their skills to make their voices heard (figuratively and literally) during the upcoming festival.
Baybeats 2023 will be one for fans and friends from Singapore and around the globe. We cannot wait to rock out with everyone and revitalise that raw energy onsite, so see you in October!
