Garden Beats


Picnics aren’t that much fun without music. At Garden Beats, it’s the perfect combination of both food and music – the two things that keep most of us sane. Stellar performances are lined up, including Bakermat on his first ever Southeast Asia tour, Moodwax, a modern Electronica artist, Kraak & Smaak with a funky mix of disco and house, as well as Mowe, a House music duo. Besides music, you can expect to enjoy food and drinks, all at the lush greenery of Fort Canning Park.

Time : 1pm – 10.30pm
Venue: Fortgate, Fort Canning Park
Admission: $125
