WOMEN TAKE CENTRESTAGE AT SINGAPORE’S EXCITING NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL, THE ALEX BLAKE CHARLIE SESSIONS
KUALA LUMPUR, Singapore’s best-kept music secret, The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions will make its debut on Saturday, 7 December at the Pasir Panjang Power Station. Organized by 24OWLS, a new business collective comprising the people behind the last five editions of Laneway Festival Singapore, the day-long music festival features a forward-looking, female-fronted line-up studded with international and Singaporean acts, many of whom are making their Asian debuts in Singapore.
It is driven by a mission: To create a unique experience for music lovers who appreciate music in its splendiferous majesty, ranging from pop rock and R&B to indie-folk and electronica, on a more personal scale, set within an unusual heritage locale.
The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions will be held at the Pasir Panjang Power Station which is located at 27 Pasir Panjang Road, just a few minutes’ walk from the Labrador Park MRT Station (Circle Line). The event will be the first large-scale music event to be held at the sprawling venue.
Audiences can expect the raw, industrial space to be transformed into a stunning setting with varied performance areas, dedicated relaxation corners, as well as shopping and food-and-beverage stalls. As part of its integrated approach to involve the physicality of the space, an Artist-in-Residence programme is also being launched: A group of artists and illustrators from Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand will bedeck blank walls and seating pods, turning them into works of art.
The Pasir Panjang area is an under-the-radar gem. It is enchantingly serene, accompanied by glorious nature (Labrador Nature Reserve, HortPark and Mount Faber) and culinary bonafides (Uncle Ho Tuckshop for Hanoi cuisine, PeraMakan for Peranakan food and the Pasir Panjang Food Centre).
