Esplanade brings back Mosaic in 2016, introduces Mosaic Music Weekend

In 2014, the curtain closed on Mosaic Music Festival; a long-running, widely beloved programme by Esplanade that was exceptionally curated every year. 

Introducing the country to a wealth of emerging indie acts and established names, all from a wide spectrum of genres — try finding another festival that boasts Joss Stone, Grizzly Bear, Os Mutantes and Charlie Lim in its nine-year history of shows — it's not an understatement to say that it was a complete shock when the festival introduced its final line-up that year.

Don't miss Charlie Puth, the voice behind hit singles "See You Again" from Fast & Furious 7, "Marvin Gaye" feat. Meghan Trainor and more, live on this one night only concert!

While the "festival" concept is not returning, Mosaic will be taking on a brand new form as Mosaic Music Weekend, promising "quality music artists both novel and familiar." It appears that Mosaic will be staying true to the tasteful ethos from its previous incarnation, and they will also be hosting a series of free performances and activities. The weekend will fall on the 1st to 4th September, 2016.

No line-up has been revealed yet, but seeing how Mosaic has had names like St. Vincent, Grimes, The Cinematic Orchestra, N.E.R.D., Olafur Arnalds, Neko Case and World's End Girlfriend, we're confident this one would be more than satisfying. Tickets will go on sale July 28th.

Stay tuned for further updates.
