Mosaic Music Weekend
We can’t wait to choose from the myriad of musical acts this coming weekend, indulging in a couple of good melodious hours. The Mosaic Music Weekend, a mellowed down version of the grand 10-day extravaganza that is the Mosaic Music Festival which debuted in 2005, is bringing to us a series of talent-filled international acts. The highlight performance has got to be the collaborative performance by Lisa Hannigan and Patrick Wolf, which is sure to enthral us with the mellifluous harmonies of the angel-voiced duo. There’ll also be a bevy of free performances from local and regional acts, such as beloved local singer Anise, TOMGIRL and Oh! Flamingo from the Philippines, which you can tune in to if you’re looking to drop by The Esplanade.
Date: 1 September 2016 – 4 September 2016
Venue: Esplanade, Theatres By The Bay
Admission: Free (Free programmes), $88 (Ticketed programmes)
Tickets available at esplanade.com.
Mid-Autumn at Gardens By The Bay
Our nostalgic senses just seem to heighten each time the Mid-Autumn Festivals rolls around. There’s nothing more we’d rather do than gather around with our family members, sharing mooncakes and laughter while moon gazing. But we might wave tradition goodbye for just this year, as Gardens By The Bay is inviting our families to celebrate lantern festival with them as the Gardens promises to come aglow every evening with a dazzling display of elaborately handcrafted lantern sets. We’re definitely looking forward to the nightly performances, cultural activities, and the myriad of food booths where we’ll find delectable asian treats to nibble on.
Date: 3 September 2016 – 18 September 2016
Time: 9am – 8pm
Venue: Gardens By The Bay
