Asia's best bands flock to the Esplanade for Rocking The Region 2017

Last year, the Esplanade kicked off the inaugural edition of Rocking The Region - an exciting series of live gigs designed to showcase the very best from the region.

And while 2016's successful installment focused on great bands from Southeast Asia, 2017's programme will go bigger with inspired bookings from all over the continent.

Notable headliners include eclectic South Korean indie band GOONAM, acclaimed Taiwanese punk outfit INHUMAN, boundary-pushing Thai alt-rockers Monomania, Bangkok's one-man psychedelic-rave band band S.O.L.E, and Filipino indie-pop darlings We Are Imaginary.

Likewise, acts such as Indonesian nugaze band HEALS and Mas Kimura's (you may remember him as a member of Singaporean pop punk heroes Pug Jelly) Japanese alternative rock outfit NOTHING TO DECLARE are also worth checking out.

Not to be outdone, our Malaysian neighbors will also be well represented at Rocking The Region with instrumental musicians mutesite alongside the massively popular rock group An Honest Mistake.

Naturally, there'll be a whole host of Singaporean talent on offer as well, including The Summer State, False Plaintiff, Stopgap, Sphaeras, .gif, The Psalms and bruised willies.

Taking place from 3rd to 31st March, all the shows are free and will be held at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre. For the full schedule and more details, please visit Esplanade's official website.
