When you celebrate the complementary worlds of visual art and music, you affirm the creative energies of the two most universal forms of expression. That is the heartbeat of Street of Clans 2019. Beginning this Friday and lasting throughout the weekend, the festival will unfold along Bukit Pasoh Road in a splendour of interactive design installations, workshops and community-centric activities, anchored around the themes of kinship and unity.
There will also be an exclusive, Bandwagon-curated lineup of musicians, as well as Zouk-enlisted DJs, that will be soundtracking the proceedings all weekend long. Find who they are and why you should be very, very excited, below.

As a vital voice in the larger tapestry of Made In Singapore music, he guarantees that his set will be more than worth your attention and time.
Shak will perform on Friday, 8 March, from 6-7pm.
