June’s Jumbo Fairs and Festivals

How time flies! We’re almost halfway through 2011, and we just can’t wait for the rest of the year to speed by.

As we enter into the height of summer, be prepared for temperatures to rise even further as the hottest gadgets and celebrities hit our shores. Our solution? Beat the heat by downing lots of cold, cold brew of course!


Round up a group of your closest, rowdiest friends and head on down to Beerfest Asia (June 16-19) for a guaranteed great night out (check back shortly for our picks of the highlights). Work your way through more than 250 different types of beers (we dare you to) that hail from countries as diverse as Czech Republic, Australia, Belgium, USA and Thailand, among others.

Of course, if you think it’s going to be nothing but beer-guzzling (it could be, you know!), there will be a whole slew of electrifying tribute bands performing too! Beerfest Asia 2011 will see the debut of the All Star Showstoppers with three tribute experiences of The Beatles, The Blues Brothers and Rolling Stones, as well as the return of tribute bands “The Killer Queen” and “The U2 Show - Achtung Baby”.

Check out “The U2 Show - Achtung Baby” below:

Some advice: Drink responsibly, don’t drive, and do line that tummy with the myriad of food options available before plunging in!

Singapore’s glam factor is going through the roof with the debut of ScreenSingapore 2011 (June 5-12), an international cinema event for industry insiders to network and talk shop. What’s in it for us, movie fans? Well, loads of red carpet gala evenings with mega-hot celebrities like Tom Hanks and Shah Ruk Khan gracing our shores!
