March to the beat of the Mosaic Music Festival at the Esplanade!

The heat is on in Singapore, which makes it the perfect time to escape to the Esplanade for cool tunes, magic melodies and all kinds of beats playing at the Mosaic Music Festival from 7-16 March.

A broad range of world-class acts

The Esplanade has orchestrated just the right array of jams, shows and concerts — a veritable rainbow rhapsody of music options designed to delight all music lovers.

Washed Out, one of the acts for Mosaic Music Festival 2014

What’s clear is that the folks behind Mosaic Music Festival worked very hard to make this a gathering of the world’s finest music from all across the globe. We’re talking about countries as distinct and diverse as the US and the UK, Spain, Norway, Iceland, Italy, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, Cuba and Japan.

All music enthusiasts can visit www.musicmosaicfestival.com to check out the acts available at the festival. Jive to original independent sound from the UK with The Big Pink, Latin jazz soul from Spain with Buika, or retro pop from Norway with Young Dreams.  There’s a world of music to encounter in the Mosaic Music Festival.
