Women-centric music festival The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions will make its return after three years at Pasir Panjang Power Station from Feb 21 to 25.

Organised by event planning organisation 24OWLS, the festival will feature several music acts, including local alt-rock trio Coming Up Roses, American indie-rock darling Soccer Mommy and Japanese singer-songwriter Ichiko Aoba.

While the music performances will be held on Saturday (Feb 25) from 12pm to late, other activities will take place during the first four days of the festival from Feb 21 to 24 from 5pm to 11pm.

Such activities include a pop-up book cafe, art lane, film screenings and a Friday-night club party, which will only be held on Feb 24. A wide range of partners from the local arts and lifestyle scenes will collaborate with 24OWLS for the activities.

Similar to the first Alex Blake Charlie Sessions held back in 2019, this edition of the festival focuses on the theme of exploration and experimentation.

The Best Seats in the House will see exclusive Singapore premieres of films made by and about women showcased at the festival by retro movie theatre The Projector.

However, If you prefer books over films, Sweet Somethings by Chio Books may have something right up your alley. The pop-up book cafe offers several titles and readings by female authors, and also includes a dessert bar for visitors to grab a snack while reading.

Named EYES on, the art lane offers visitors selected designs for customised merchandise printing from three artists, including rat-loving artist-designer Wondebra Loh, soft sculptor Geraldine Lim and Alison M. Low.
