Dubbed as “Asia Music Wonderland” – Asia’s definitive music and arts festival, Skechers Sundown Festival, is back in Singapore for its 10th edition — and the event’s biggest to date.
Organised by Red Spade Entertainment and presented by Skechers, the festival brings to the island an exhilarating line-up of music performances and art installations. Skechers Sundown Festival has musically united 11 countries from around the region – some of the best, most essential artists from over 11 countries, including China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan, will perform a spectrum-blasting array of music riches. Whether its indie, urban, hip-hop, K-pop, EDM and rock, no sound will be left unturned. Skechers Sundown Festival shared that the festival celebrates Asian talent and diversity with a stellar line-up of international music acts representing Asian roots. With more than 50 Asian artists, including our very own Hallyu superstars, MFBTY, iKON, DJ SODA – the stages are set to be lit.

SILOSO BEACH SENTOSA + WEEKEND PARTY

Skechers Sundown Festival 2019 will be expanding as a longer-than-life 3D2N festival. With so many A-listers and stacked line-up – it’s impossible to fit everything into one day. Skechers Sundown wants to make this a weekend you won’t forget!
THE TRUE GLAMPING EXPERIENCE
If you’re wondering how you’ll be able to enjoy all 3D2N without being completely burnt out from the traveling – fret no more, as there are amazing camps set up for you! There will be 50 spaces allocated to Freedom Camp, where enthusiasts can pitch their own tent for the duration of the festival. Alternatively, enjoy a lap of luxury at Campville, a dedicated 3D2N full-board glamping experience. The plush bell tents will be furnished with four single beds, fresh linen and towels, and accommodate up to four people per tent. Each tent will also come with a carton of beer and two bottles of champagne for the perfect evening unwind. Limited to 50 luxury tents only – so act quick!
Expect larger than life art installations of the wonderland theme that drives home the message of our environmental crisis in Asia curated by Borneo Laboratory, led by Wendy Teo. Inspired by its pristine nature, the spirit of Borneo is all about being conscientious and holistic in action. Borneo Laboratory is interested in infusing this spirit into cross-regional collaborations that manifest empathetic, universal values. As a ‘design and make’ laboratory, Borneo Laboratory is interested in realising truthful actions as evidence of the positive changes we need to see in the modern world.
Festival goers will also be able to enjoy two award-winning films by Anticipate Pictures — Japanese drama-comedy which won 2nd prize in the Cinéfondation at the Cannes Film Festival, Oh Lucy!, featuring Josh Hartnett, and Chinese animated dark comedy film which won the Best Animation at the Golden Horse Award, Have A Nice Day.
