Come for the music, but stay for the other things you can do at The Music Market. It's going to be a full day of fun at Hard Rock Cafe Singapore, the rustic and iconic music-loving establishment nestled in the heart of Orchard Road. There's a lot of things to look forward to on 2 August - the amazing lineup showcasing all things good in local music featuring The Sam Willows, The Diarists, Sphaeras, Cashew Chemists and more. There's also all the freebies you can get including a Juice tote, a free ice cold bottle of apple cider courtesy of our official cider sponsors Somersby, and even some free magazines from Heart Media. We put together a number of things you can look forward to on top of the already great music we have on show for you!
Dabao Your Poetry
This is for all you literatis! The Speak Collective will be doing something special, and different for one day only. Usually known for their bold and introspective live performances, these talented group of poets will be putting their words to paper and will be there to help you with yours. Come drop by the booth for a personalised poetry consultation!
We Love Local
An array of stalls will be available for all your whims and fancies, like a magazine stall with the best titles in indie magazines and more, but we've also got a lot of locally made products by these tastemakers including artisan soda in many delightful flavours by Citizen Pop, a t-shirt stand featuring local jargon splashed on it thanks to the people at Naiise, and of course, every event needs a local distro stocking local band merchandise and more and for The Music Market, we're proud to have on our friendly neighbourhood distro guys from Canopus.
For those with short attention spans, The Music Market is going to be chock-full of activities and we're taking up both levels of Hard Rock Cafe for it. Head to the second floor, and into the Recharge Room where we will be screening some music documentaries and then resume to gamer mode where you can go head to head with your friends (and enemies) via console. When you're done shopping around the stalls, stop by the Doodle Wall to leave your mark or check out the photo exhibition of all the gigs that happened this year.
The Diner Experience
You'll be spoiled for choice with the massive list of snacks, finger food, meals and desserts when you get the munchies at The Music Market 2014 - wolf down on their signature buffalo wings (complete with Classic Rock, Heavy Metal and Tangy sauces), feast upon their classic New York Strip Steak, or even share a Fresh Apple Cobbler (topped with vanilla ice cream, walnuts and caramel sauce) with your friends while watching the music talents live on stage. It's a classic diner experience as you hunker down on hearty food surrounded by the historic walls of Hard Rock Cafe.
Beer and Freebies
Of course, what's a party without alcoholic beverages? Pick your poison from the Hard Rock Cafe bar and let the seasoned bartenders fashion your concoction of choice (but drink responsibly guys!). If you're up for something a little more refreshing, let us direct you to the comforting arms of Somersby, the aromatic apple cider who are presenting The Music Market! Special Somersby offers are abound come August 2nd - we're giving away ciders to the first 100 entries to the venue, plus another giveaway featuring four sets of Somersby picnic baskets with assorted ciders and coasters included inside!
