Funk, jazz and indie rock will fill the air at the Marina Bay Cruise Centre when home-grown musicians take to the stage at the Singapore Coffee Festival 2017.
Singer-songwriters Inch Chua, Tim De Cotta and indie rock group StopGap will perform on August 5, while singer-songwriters Ffion, Jawn Chan and Lewis Loh will perform on August 6.
Organised by The Straits Times (ST) and presented by DBS Bank, the coffee festival features more than 60 exhibitors, including coffee purveyors, equipment distributors and cafes, as well as workshops, talks and live entertainment.
The first day of the festival has been set aside for trade and media. The remaining days have been divided into two sessions – brunch, from 10 am to 3.30 pm; and sundown, from 4.30 pm to 10 pm.
The musicians will start performing at 6pm at the Sunset Wharf against the backdrop of the Singapore skyline. The latter is also the setting for an outdoor BBQ, complete with tents, fans and food such as bone-in beef short ribs from Symmetry; Angus steak and fries from Garcons and chilli crab pasta from Hyde & Co.
