Bandwagon: The Music Market is back again! This time we have the intimate stomping grounds of Hard Rock Cafe to hold our merry event. Surrounded by paraphernalia of legendary musicians, it's only right that we will be bringing the freshest acts to an iconic rock n' rolling place. To keep you enthralled throughout the day, we have musical performances all day, best food and drink deals, a bunch of activities to jump on, and a bevy of stalls where you can get your jewellery, fashion, and even literary fix. Come early and be rewarded with a refreshing apple cider, courtesy of our presenting sponsors, Somersby. A community event with a gig, or a gig with a community event - however you see it, it's not going to be your usual gig experience down here at The Music Market.
Here's what happened at last year's #BTMM!
And as always, we have fixed up a special line-up to best showcase the diverse sounds of Singapore. Get introspective with the talented collective from The Diarists, soak up the chill vibes of Cashew Chemists, get a buzz out of merry band The Sam Willows, groove out with Gareth Fernandez, and revel in the electronic stylings of Intriguant who will be performing with a live band.
For louder sounds and a sonic boost, we have A Vacant Affair and for a special performance, Sphaeras and Two Seas will be putting their talents together to give us a rousing show. Come for the music, but stay for all the acts - you might just discover your next favourite band or song. And if you like anything, head to the Canopus Distro booth we have on location to grab that EP, album and other band merchandise.
With music to keep the festivities going, we have an assemblage of charming stalls selling all sorts of wares and things. Here's what you can find: Keep things local with Statement tees and remember to jio your friends! Get up to date with the best indie mags at the Magpie stall and let sneakerheads rejoice at the Sole Superior booth. There will also be a selection of food stalls selling cakes, soda, and more goodies for you to munch on and indulge in at the event - not to mention the scrumptious F&B offerings by Hard Rock Cafe itself. If you are a lover of poetry, we even have a group of poets at the arena who will be able to craft personalised poems for you. So remember to bring along some cash because there will be a lot of tempting things you'll find at The Music Market.
Live music, food, some shopping, and plenty of activities such as a photo exhibition and music documentary screenings, there's no reason for you not to be doing anything on August 2! Tickets are now available at Peatix so get yours right now!
