As part of the National Youth Council’s Youth Month celebration in July, a curated youth festival will be held over two consecutive Saturdays on Jul 30 and Aug 6.

Titled Majulah Block Party, the festival line-up features numerous local food and beverage pop-ups, live music and dance performances, as well as industry panel sessions.

The food and beverage vendors featured include brewery Alive Brewing Co. and gastro bar In Bad Company, offering a vast menu from grab-and-go bites like bagels and tacos to craft beers, craft spirits and cocktails. 

Beyond that, patrons can also watch live music and dance performances by various local artists such as electro-pop singer Shye, hip-hop collective ROTB and DJ Peter Leftmind. 

“Can’t wait to finally be able to play live, come listen to some songs from ‘days to morning glory’, ‘hello TRINITY’ and maybe an unreleased track,” said Shye.

Also happening on both days of the festival, the industry panel sessions will be led by key opinion leaders like Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Edwin Tong and TikTok personality Haven. The discussions will revolve around Singaporean youths and the local music and culture scene.

“We saw Majulah Block Party as an opportunity to create something extremely down to earth, memorable, and something that spoke to the young. It will be two weekends of community-driven fun featuring up and coming people in the entertainment and F&B industry, with some of our favourite local acts and brands,” said Vernon Neo, General Manager of festival co-organiser Zendyll Music Agency.

The festival will take place on both days from 2pm to 11.30pm at *SCAPE Underground and Somerset Youth Park. 

Although admission is free, festival-goers are still required to register online and secure a ticket prior to the event.
