Baybeats 2021


Staff member
“Why does alternative and indie music matter and why is it important to hold on to?” – These have been the two guiding questions for the Baybeats team, right from the festival’s inception at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay 20 years ago. With the unwavering support of a passionate music community, Baybeats celebrates a milestone this year. There is no better way for us to express our gratitude than to present a line-up that reflects the raw, unbridled energy of the community we serve. To sweeten it further, this year’s edition will span four days, from 4 – 7 Nov 2021, as compared to our usual three-day festival. To allow as many audiences as possible to join us in this landmark year, this year’s festival takes a hybrid format, as we perform live to audiences in our venues ,while livestreaming performances for everyone at home too.


There are dreamers, then there are those who make dreams come true. In the last episode of ADD TO PLAYLIST, we trace the origins of Singapore's largest free alternative music festival Baybeats. We attempt to answer this: which came first? The star or the stage?
