The fifth edition of the Aliwal Urban Art Festival is even bigger! With Aliwal Street closed to vehicular traffic, we’ve leveled up on our programmes so you can have an ab-fab time with your mates getting urban skills like skateboarding, glamping, freestyle football, dancing, and loads more.

SPRAY SWING
Aliwal Car Park | 5pm till late

Boy, are we tired of the usual live painting on standard flat canvases… So here we challenge three artists to use a puzzle canvas to create an artwork visitors can actually play with. 


LIVE PERFORMANCES

Multi-purpose hall | 7pm till late

 

BAKERS IN SPACE

The self-confessed indie post-psych rock band that take musical notes from bands like Arctic Monkeys, David Bowie and Temples, blew up the Singapore indie scene with their latest EP Implosions in 2017.

MEAN

Singapore's own 'Dapper Rapper' is a singer, songwriter, and producer, as well as a director and editor of his own music videos. Smooth, versatile, energetic and pure cool, Mean delivers a distinct brand of bad-ass, hazy hip-hop. 

SOBS

Playful, kitschy and instantly relatable pop music reminiscent of Liz Phair, Frankie Cosmos and Alvvays. The debut EP Catflap featured their trademark sound with lyrics about a neighbour’s dog, intimacy, affection and Singapore’s non-existent ocean.

VANDETTA

The veteran performer Vanessa Fernandez has performed at music festivals around the world including Gilles Peterson Worldwide Festival, Laneway Festival, and Face The Music, brandishing her progressive sound and powerhouse vocals.

POPTART
11pm till late

POPTART parties are filled with delirious fun, mad moshing, scenesters, club kids, head-bangers, and other odd characters in a blur of indie tunes anchored by residents weelikeme and KiDG.

FFINN (Slugwife)

SLUG WIFE resident DJ FFINN’s freeform and interactive sets have the tendency to become volatile on the dance floor, peppered with cheeky classics.
