The first-of-its-kind in Asia, Singapore Drum Fest is a festival unlike any other music festival. Organized by Fest Events International, and modeled after the Modern Drummer Festival in the USA, Singapore Drum Fest brought the world’s best drummers and musicians in 2007 and 2008 for an unforgettable experience that is still talked about today.
Singapore Drum Fest 2016
Singapore Drum Fest traces its humble beginnings to its first event back in 2007 that included a drum competition in conjunction with a concert. With the sole purpose of providing the local drum community with a platform to share their passion and aptitude, Singapore Drum Fest is gaining recognition as the go-to festival for the local music and drum community.
Over the years, Singapore Drum Fest has grown from just a single day event to an entire season of music events from July to September 2016, all of which relate to drumming and percussion. This year alone, there were four events, namely, A Date With A Legend (concert with home-grown legend Louis Soliano on July 27), Ultimate Weekend (August 19 & 20), Drum Off Singapore (August 19 & 20), and the Dennis Chambers Legacy Drum Camp (September).
