Hip hop till you drop this week

There are plenty of big names crowding our shores this week, plus various offerings from YFest and the Japanese Film Festival so August 16 to 20 will be anything but a quiet.


iYaz and Kevin Lyttle feat. Charice in concert

Fans of RnB and Hip Hop, don’t miss out on this very special one-night-only performance in Asia by superstars iYaz and Kevin Lyttle, with a special cameo by the gorgeous, talented Charice. Nevermind it’s only Wednesday, the weekend begins early as you groove the night away to this stellar lineup!

Wednesday August 18 only, at Fort Canning Park. Tickets at $88 (standard).


Eugenia Yip – At the Concourse (YFest)

If you’re more into music of the low-key, intimate variety, singer-songwriter Eugenia Yip will surely inspire you with original music that was influenced by her tumultuous, early adult years. Expect to be enchanted by the sultry siren’s vocals as the evening progresses.

Monday August 16 only, at the Esplanade. Free.

Mixed Martial Arts Fighting Championship

The mixed martial art championship is back for its August installment. Gather round to watch highly- ranked fighters battle it out in the custom designed circular cage through the span of two days, to bring us one step closer to the grand finals where the last man standing will receive his well-deserved Championship belt and the title of Asia’s Champion.

Wednesday and Thursday, August 18 and 19 only, at Resorts World Sentosa. Tickets from $50 to $300.


DUET Dance performance

The power of dance gets a vigorous reinterpretation with this multi-dimensional performance comprising of live music, vocal text, visual projection, and of course - dance. Through these various mediums, the concept of an existence without barriers between the subject and the object is closely examined and experienced. The result? A strangely compelling blend of the dynamic vs the delicate.

Thursday to Saturday, August 19 to 21 only, at the Substation Theatre. Tickets at $20 (standard).


Boy – Japanese Film Festival

Facts can be stranger than fiction – especially in this true story of a family who make their living by exploiting hapless drivers for cash after deliberately injuring their child and making it look like an accident. We can only watch in torment as the injuries worsen and the boy in question faces mortal peril. Fans of Oshima, don’t miss this.

Thursday August 19 only, at the National Museum. Free.
