Perfect for gastronomes and bon vivants. Eat your way through Singapore’s most esteemed culinary event—the World Gourmet Summit(Apr 25-May 8).

Now into its Crystal Anniversary (snazzy name for 15th year), this edition of the WGS promises yet more specially-themed culinary adventures and celebrity master-chefs specially flown in for your gustatory pleasure!

Wine-lovers, raise a toast to Burghound in Asia – Asia Symphony of Wine & Flavours (Apr 7-9), featuring a series of wine-related tastings, master-classes and general appreciation.

The highlight is of course the Unrivalled Passion for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – Grand Tasting (Sat, Apr 9), which boasts a dizzying selection of some 200 top international artisan producers.

LOOK & LISTEN

Local live music institution Timbre brings back its Rock & Roots festival (Apr 15-16, Fri-Sat) this year with a breathtaking line-up! Choose from Bob Dylan, Toots & the Maytals and Michael Franti on Friday, or John Legend, Imogen Heap and Trombone Shorty, or be like us and just go for everything.
