SINGAPORE, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 – Sundown Festival is back in its sixth year with a fresh line-up featuring upcoming and locally established artistes from all over Asia with the addition of artistes representing three more countries this year – Singapore, Malaysia and India.

An iconic music festival which brings Asian artistes and fans onto one singular platform to celebrate and bridge the diverse Asian cultures through music and food, Sundown Festival is an outdoor music event, held at the F1 Pit Building each year. Since its first showcase in 2009, the festival has now grown to more than two and a half times in audience size.

Representing Taiwan, Chang Chen Yue, also known as A-Yue, will be performing at the festival, together with Kanika Kapoor, an Indian Punjabi singer known for her song, “Baby Doll”. Girl group S.O.S. from Indonesia whose song, “Drop It Low”, reached #3 on music charts on [V] Channel will be joining the line-up as well as Hong Kong TVB actress and singer Kate Tsui.

“We intend for Sundown Festival to be a signature showcase of Asian music talents which will amplify the careers of these artistes. Having the festival here, is part of our secret wish to transform Singapore to be the Asian music capital,” shares Samantha Chan, founder of Sundown Festival and Red Spade Entertainment which organises the festival every year. “The addition of Singapore artistes is the fruition of a budding dream and now we’re excited to map the next milestone.”

Recognising the growth in popularity of Asian music, global leader in lifestyle footwear, Skechers Singapore Pte Ltd, will be lending their support to this year’s festival as a presenting sponsor. Part of the agreement will allow customers of Skechers to meet and greet the artistes. More information will be released at a later date on their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/skechers.

“As a lifestyle brand, Skechers has supported breakout stars such as Demi Lovato, Danielle Bradbery and even Carrie Underwood years ago,” says Susan Chua, Vice President of Skechers ASEAN. “As such, Skechers’ support for Sundown Festival is very much aligned as we believe it is the avenue for the next rising stars from whence music talents from Asia will be launching their international career.”

Starting in the evening at 4pm on 22 November, fans will also get to relish popular street food from the different Asian countries at the food stalls set-up on the festival grounds as part of embracing Asian cultures.
