GOOD FEST (Starts at 5pm)
Beside the Live screening of National Day Parade, you get to enjoy music and dance numbers across genres from acoustic to hip hop.

• Natalie Hiong : Banker-turned-singer-songwriter who writes music of poignant beauty. Her songs showcase her soothing vocals, virtuosity and profound musicality while her heartfelt lyrics bring you on a journey from the heights of being in love to the depths of heartbreak.

Coming from a family of musicians, Natalie started learning the piano when she was 3. She wrote her first song at 12 and won a national songwriting competition at 15.

• DJ S.O.F : Though only in the music scene for 2 and a half years, DJ S.O.F has shared the stage with international acts such as Kill The Noize (USA, New York), Housemiester (Berlin, Germany), We Are Mutants (Malaysia, KL), Mykal (Taipei). Pumping up the crowd with Electro/ Progressive tunes, S.O.F has combed most of the big clubs here like Zirca, Zouk, Powerhouse, Azzura, Wavehouse Sentosa, Butter Factory to even Milk Club and Bedroom in KL and Supper Club in Bangkok.

• TRIP : TRIP is a 5-piece band hailing from Sunny Singapore. Their main goal is to share their love for music and express it through different genres. They were originally a 4-piece band but decided to put the project on hold for a period of time. In 2012, they decided to reform with a new vocalist.

They are currently in the process of creating new material for their upcoming studio album. The album has taken influence from bands such as Mayday Parade, Go Radio, Sparks The Rescue and Paramore.

Apart from these, dance performances by Fad Faction and Lion City Lockers will be on on that day so all you fellow dancers do head down and show some support! Also, 15- year old local rapper, Tzire will also be showcasing his talent then. Only 15! The younger generation now is indeed getting more and more talented. 

GOOD FOOD (Begins at 7pm)

• There will be hotdogs, candy floss, yoghurt, etc. Nothing beats good food with great company right?  So come on down with your friends to enjoy this!!!
