For the first time ever, Sentosa is ready to set its grounds for the Sentosa Music Fest 2023.
Apart from the exciting activities to do at the sunny island resort, you can now take part in an aural celebration of beach-front events and intimate gigs from 10 November 2023 to 3 January 2024.
If you’re a jazz connoisseur or EDM devotee, you may want to mark your calendar for the remainder of 2023. The music festival is set to immerse you in a series of special happenings and musical experiences that showcase the island’s traits.
In a press release, Ms Thien Kwee Eng, Chief Executive Officer of Sentosa Corporation, said: “At Sentosa, we believe that music transcends boundaries and has the power to build priceless connections. Our ambition is to deliver an islandwide festival that leverages musical sounds to reflect Sentosa’s island personality. We aim to entrench music as a defining aspect of Sentosa's identity, allowing our guests to build and discover memories in a magical way."
