100 Singapore bands to rock Kovan Hub

Published on Jun 6, 2014 12:22 PM

One hundred home-grown bands will rock an old Hougang bus interchange, in what is possibly the largest local indie music event to date - and it is free.

100 Bands Festival, happening over three consecutive weekends starting tomorrow, features a line-up ranging from alt-rockers Monster Cat, and progressive-rock outfit In Each Hand A Cutlass, to electronic artist The Analog Girl. Veteran bands such as Astreal will take the stage, as well as newer ones such as Atlas.

Up to 20 bands will play on each gig day at the old interchange now called Kovan Hub. Usually used by Paya Lebar Kovan Community Club for its programmes, the space can hold 500 people. Each band's set will last about 20 to 30 minutes.

The festival is part of PAssionArts Festival 2014, an annual affair organised by the People's Association to bring arts to the heartland.
