See you tomorrow - SING JAZZ 2018!




SING JAZZ is Asia’s premier international festival of jazz and jazz-inspired music. Bringing together world-class acts and Grammy Award-winning artists at the iconic Marina Bay Sands, SING JAZZ harnesses the creative energy that is the essence of jazz. SING JAZZ has made Singapore the regional destination for music-lovers to experience and enjoy the biggest names in music today.


The important social and developmental element to SING JAZZ, is that proceeds from the festival go towards supporting the Foundation for The Arts & Social Enterprise in its efforts to help nurture and promote nascent local jazz talent through a Jazz Academy; in turn creating a ‘circle of help and encouragement’ to Singapore’s upcoming generation of artists. 




Friday night at the Singapore International Jazz Festival (SING JAZZ) 2018 is set to be a bumper start for the weekend musical marathon with four additional acts announced to perform alongside their already stellar line-up at the iconic Marina Bay Sands. Visionary French artist Sebastian Tellier and Brazilian guitar legend, Paulinho Garcia will grace The Main Stage on Friday evening, whilst internationally renowned DJs Sasha and Ferry Corsten will elevate the after-party activities at The Late Show.

Friday 6 AprilThe Main Stage

One of the first handful of acts kicking off the festival is Sebastien Tellier considered one of the most significant French artists of the last decade. He is the 2000s’ romantic dandy, a real icon proved by his musical genius though enigmatic nonchalant style and his sense of fun. Anyone who has seen him in action will know that his live performances are truly legendary – bizarre and beautiful in equal measure. As always with Sebastien, fans can expect the unexpected.

Returning to Singapore is fan-favourite, Paulinho Garcio a Brazilian Guitarist and vocalist, described as “the epitome of the solitary troubadour… [whose] languid chords and cleanly plucked lines illuminate the complicated rhythms with the cool clarity of moonlight.”

Friday 6 AprilThe Late Show

Grammy Award nominee, four-time International Dance Music Award winner and four-time DJ Mag award winner, the legendary SASHA is a man who needs no introduction. Coming to Singapore for the first time, the Welsh producer will hit our shores off the back of his long-awaited return to Coachella in 2017 and his extensive BBC Radio 1 support.

The DJ Mag USA cover star will set Friday night alight at The Late Show, with his uncanny ability to read people, and tapping into that human experience to take them on an incredible musical journey. Fans can expect the party to be in full swing with Sasha behind the decks, giving us an insight into his world-renowned ‘Last Night on Earth’ parties.

Another addition to The Late Show includes the mercurial Ferry Corsten, gracing us with a deftly curated trance and progressive house DJ set that is guaranteed to come with a wow factor.

The Dutch DJ’s illustrious career is exemplified by a passion for music that began as a hobby and spiralled into a full-blown profession. Today, as it was in the beginning, Corsten’s skills lie in his ability to coax the maximum emotional impact from electronic dance music of all genres, not just trance, but also progressive-house and electro. He remains and has always been ahead-of-his time, making music that becomes a template for others to follow.
