With Sing Jazz 2018 just about three weeks away, the festival has announced four new additions to Friday's lineup: Ferry Corsten, Sébastien Tellier, Sasha and Paulinho Garcia.
French musical dandy Sébastien Tellier (pictured, right) and Brazilian singer-guitarist Paulinho Garcia will play the Main Stage, while Grammy-nominated DJ Sasha and Dutchman Ferry Corsten, who DJed the closing ceremony of the SEA Games 2015 (pictured, left), will play the Late Show, the festival announced in a press release this morning.
This year, festivalgoers will also get to enjoy the Festival Village, a fringe event that will showcase 16 local and regional acts. While the main acts for Sing Jazz will perform starting Friday, 6 April, the Village will be up from Wednesday onwards. The Festival Village will also be open and free for the general public to attend.
