QUAYSIDE CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL 2017
CHRISTMAS COMES TO QUAYSIDE
Singapore’s hottest new riverfront dining destination, The Quayside, will be kicking off the Christmas season in style.
Enjoy a long al-fresco Sunday afternoon with rosé and cocktails to the soundtrack of laidback beats. As the sun sets, the promenade and river will glow with Christmas lights as the entertainment continues late into the evening.
Guests who spend more than $100 SGD with MasterCard at any restaurant or Christmas Stall, will be entered into a prize to win a trip to Bali.
Boutique artisanal chocolates to homemade candles, classic Italian gourmet gifts to traditional mince pies – an eclectic mix of market stalls will ignite character and cheer to The Quayside walkway with a selection of gourmet and homegrown Christmas gifts.
A line up of Singapore’s acclaimed musicians and DJs will take to The Quayside stage. Veteran Jazz singer Zora will bring her smooth vocals, New Stream Brass Band will rove the promenade and headliners The Steve McQueens will bring their signature Soul Funk vibes to the backdrop of the sun setting on The Quayside. Local hero DJ Sivanesh b2b Mack will close the day with chilled out electro sounds.
FOR THE KIDS
Lawn games, roving magicians and caricaturists will be on hand in a dedicated children’s area. Giant Jenga, Giant Connect Four and Ring Rope Toss will keep all ages happy at Quayside throughout the day, and an interactive photo booth will ensure the best moments are captured!
HELL ON WHEELS
The Hell on Wheels is back for its Halloween bus tour after a long 2 year hiatus. For those of you who survived the last six without blacking out, you already know the deal...
The 7th heaven, or should we say hell, include:
• Entry & complimentary first drink at four exclusive venues
• Copious amounts of alcohol on the bus
As a Sunshine Nation special, enjoy 10% off tickets with 'sunshinenation'!
Remember, costumes are not limited to just the bedroom. Draping devilishly and an unhealthy penchant for drinking is mandatory. All boring bodies will be chucked out. Forget about looking pretty and posing- this night is all about shocking costumes and sinful behaviour. It's time to dust out that hideously grotesque costume or sexy schoolgirl outfit and do the zombie shuffle.
Exploring international electronic music from Lagos to LA via London, The Global Roots crew comes together to celebrate the sounds of the DJ's mixing it up around the world.

DIIV - LIVE IN SINGAPORE
DIIV created instant vibrations in the blog-world with their impressionistic debut 'Sometime'; finding it's way onto the esteemed pages of Pitchfork and Stereogum a mere matter of weeks after the group's formation.
Enlisting the aid of NYC indie-scene-luminary, Devin Ruben Perez, former Smith Westerns drummer Colby Hewitt, and Mr. Smith's childhood friend Andrew Bailey, DIIV craft a sound that is at once familial and frost-bitten. Indebted to classic kraut, dreamy Creation-records psychedelia, and the primitive-crunch of late-80s Seattle, the band walk a divisive yet perfectly fused patch of classic-underground influence.
