Recognized as the Asia Pacific’s answer to SXSW, Music Matters is easily highest profile entertainment industry gateway in this region.
And after last year's successful festival, Music Matters will once again be returning to Singapore to host its 12th annual edition from 9 September - 13 September (also known as Singapore F1 Grand Prix week).
As usual, the fest will also run concurrently with the All That Matters conference which covers the latest topics and trends in the Music, Sports, Online Entertainment, Gaming and Marketing industries from Asia and throughout the world.
But the biggest highlight of the festival is indeed the music. This year's programme will feature two days of live public performances on 9-10 September, followed by three nights of dedicated industry showcases from 11-13 September.
