In its eighth edition, festival producer Red Spade Entertainment is announcing the return of Sundown Festival this year at a brand-new entertainment and events venue at City Beach Resort, and to be held earlier on 5 August, featuring local artistes, Derrick Hoh, FARRAGO, Jack & Rai, Jason Chung, Ling Kai and The Summer State. Supporting the growth of home-grown talents and this year’s festival edition will be UnUsUal Productions Pte Ltd.
“After bringing in over 100 artistes from all over Asia to Singapore, we’re now looking to tap on our network to support the growth of our local artistes and take them out of Singapore instead,” says Samantha Chan, co-founder, Red Spade Entertainment. “We have been meeting a number of local artistes recently and are impressed with the talent that is yet to be recognised. Singapore now has a good number of talents that are ready to showcase to the world.”
In the past eight years, close to 100 artistes from all over Asia has been to Singapore to perform on one stage at the Sundown Festival to celebrate the diversity of Asian culture and music. Artistes who have performed here include Shilah Amzah from Malaysia in 2014, Show Luo from Taiwan in 2011 and they were also the first producer to introduce FT Island from Korea back in 2009 when the founders first organised the festival here.
“Over the years, Singapore has initiated and supported a number of programmes focused on catalysing and supporting the appreciation and development for artistic talent. As festival producers, we are hoping to use our network to provide a wider platform for such artistes to showcase their work which could hopefully spur the next stage of growth, and with the support of UnUsUal Productions we are looking at bringing our local talents with us overseas,” says Kelvin Goh, co-founder, Red Spade Entertainment.
Doors open from 4pm, Sat, 5 Aug General admission tickets priced at $15 (exclude ticketing charge) are on sale now and available from SISTIC. For more information on Sundown Festival, please visit their official website.
