From Indonesia to South Africa, Music Matters Live is definitely giving music around the world a platform in Singapore from 20-23 May. Like the previous years, the format of Music Matters Live is a free and easy concept. With various venues around Clarke Quay open as stages, and heaps of bands from all around the world on the lineup, it's gonna be a fun night of revelry and discovery.
From the electro-soul of Australia’s Angus Dawson, to the speaker-crunching Cloud Maze from Russia, to the street-inspired Hip Hop of Vietnam’s Wowy, diverse musical tastes are catered to and fans have the chance to discover new and exciting sounds. While the central Fountain Stage will be the main attraction for non stop international entertainment over the four nights of the festival, bars across and around Clarke Quay are gearing up to host performances that will satisfy followers of indie, pop, rock, EDM, hip hop, soul, roots, and more!
Jasper Donat, Co-Founder and CEO of festival organisers Branded Ltd commented, “There’s so much opportunity for bands to build fanbases online, but there is still no substitute for experiencing the music you love live. Music Matters Live gives fans the chance to discover the world’s hottest new talents live whilst giving those performers a chance to show their style to some of the industry’s leading figures.”
Fresh off the press, here are the first 40 bands set to perform here in May. See anyone you fancy?
