Striking the shores of Singapore this November is the Asian invasion of events quite unlike any other. We’re talking about The Chaos Asia and Sundown Festival, both of which integrates uniquely different aspects and genres that culminates into bursts of creativity and exchange!
The Chaos Asia – An Exchange of Ideas
The Chaos Asia – 88 presenters with 180 seconds to perform or pitch their souls out on a topic they’re passionate about within one of eight categories: Art, city, education, entertainment, food, health, interactive gadgets, and lifestyle. At the typically music-thumping St. James Power Station, we will witness a host of ideas bounce off its walls as we jive to the tune of innovation.

By diverse, we mean visual Kei-rock, mandarin pop, alternative rock, pop rock, alternative pop, and electronica! And that’s not it. With fringe performances and an Asian Food Village of exotic street fare from the South East Asian region, Sundown Festival is certainly a cultural exchange not to miss.
Who should attend: Anyone interested in immersing themselves in Asia’s rich cultural diversity – from music to food to traditional acts and performances.
