A new music festival is debuting this October to make a stand for sustainability

Music festivals have greatly evolved over the last couple of years; and they now serve a greater purpose, providing more than just entertainment. This October, check out debuting music festival Chillfest, which is making an effort to spread awareness on the importance of sustainability, all while delivering class acts to the mainstage.

Back in Singapore for the fourth time and headlining the festival is pop trio Boyce Avenue with their stripped-down classics, so expect an easy-going set; and featuring as a supporting act is local singer-songwriter Charlie Lim, who starred in last year’s NDP theme song.

Look forward to other chilled-out performances by Connecticut-born John Allred and Lew (real name Lewis Loh) who rose to fame when he emerged as one of the winners from the 2015 Noise Singapore Music Mentorship Program. To lead the EDM party, DJs Jade Rasif and Kesha Ayres will be taking to the decks, so be sure to come in comfortable shoes.

Food and lifestyle workshops will be thrown into the mix for an all-rounded festival. Anticipate some yoga and HIIT classes, as well as workshops and panel discussions pertaining to the topic of environment, technology and sustainability during the day, before the musical acts take the stage. The event will also be partnering up with brands that are committed to the philosophy of sustainability and healthy lifestyle habits, so prepare for a wholesome party like no other. 

ChillFest @The Green happens on Oct 19 at Fort Canning Green. More info here. Tickets begin at $138 and can be purchased here.
