Singapore New Year's Eve Gig Guide - Mediacorp's Let's Celebrate 2022, Loof FM, North East Social Club and more

2022 is on the horizon. From the highs of entering Phase 3 to the lows of the ever-changing restrictions, it goes without saying that we’ve all rode the rollercoaster that is 2021. One of the best things that happened over the course of this year was the resumption of live gigs through Esplanade, Baybeats, and *SCAPE, to name a few.

What better way to usher in the new year than a good ol' NYE gig? Here’s a rundown of shows happening during this celebratory period for you to indulge in our nation's best, both digitally and physically.


When: 30th December, 11AM

Where: Available for livestream here.
Tickets: Free

ROXY teams up with Foodbank Singapore for a fundraising campaign, happening on the 30th of December. Gear up for New Year's Eve with a stellar DJ ensemble in Aldrin, Joshua P, KFC, Ollie'Des, Ulysses, and Adrian Wee, and join the call for raising funds. Running for 8 hours, the collective aims to raise SGD$5000 for FoodBank Singapore, who have been providing free meals and dry rations to vulnerable families and individuals in Singapore since 2012.

As Loof bids a tearful farewell after 17 years of glorious dancefloor moments, they’re putting up a 12-hour virtual show one last time, casting the spotlight on our Singaporean creatives and selectors. Dean Chew, one half of the brains behind music label Darker Than Wax alongside KiDG and DJ Itch will be helming the 'Wax On Wax Off' segment as they spin off their vinyl crate selections, as well by an indie-anthem portion called 'Pops Of The Top' helmed by Ginette Chittick alongside Kim Wong. It all continues on with 'The Loof Mix', guaranteeing that KFC, Daryl Knows, Cats On Crack, Joshua P, Tyler Made and Ramesh will keep the grooves grooving. 

Avid listeners of the long-gone and adored Lush 99.5FM are also in for a treat, former radio DJs for the station Tracy Phillips and Elias Soh will be hosting a series of conversations with Singaporean creatives such as Priscilla Shunmugam, Livy Von Goh, and Amanda Lee Koe.
