AMOY ST BLOC PARTY - Keepin' it Good in the Hood
23 Apr 2017, 3:00 PM - 10:00 PM
The highly anticipated Amoy St. Bloc Party returns this April, bringing its unique brand of revelry back to the streets of Amoy. Feast and celebrate together in style with Ding Dong, Bochinche, Employees Only Singapore, Le Binchotan, burger joint Singapore, and Birds of a Feather SG, whilst taking in the rich heritage of Amoy Street. Local music and lifestyle collective Sunshine Nation, together with Singapore music talents ChrisD and DJ Zig Zach have your merrymaking needs covered, with headline performer UK electronic duo Maribou State making their highly-anticipated Singapore debut.
The first edition – New Kids on the Bloc – saw the streets of Amoy transformed in a celebration of food, drinks, play and music, with 5,000 fun-seekers converging on Amoy. This year, from 3.00pm to midnight on Sunday, 23 April 2017, we’ll be keeping it good in the hood, and once again transforming the car-free party zone with fun, food, drinks and activities for the entire community. In line with this year’s theme, the event features various activities suited for the whole community – from keeping the ‘kampung’ spirit alive through well-loved Singapore heritage games, to encouraging fit and healthy living through community yoga sessions by Yoga Movement and F45 Training Amoy Street athletic circuit sessions.
As the sun goes down, sip on prosecco from @EquatorialWines as Headline Act UK electronic duo Maribou State perform at the main stage outdoors. Well known for their unique style of compelling and deeply soulful sounds, Maribou State will deliver a magical musical journey bound to be etched in the memories of all for time to come.
Partygoers of all ages can take a breather with life-sized garden games, including giant twister, giant jenga and connect four. Proponents of green living can learn to plant an edible garden of your own under the guidance of Singapore’s very own urban farming collective, Edible Garden City Project, whilst quenching your thirst with nakd luxury artesian water - Singapore, drawn from one of the world’s purest, deepest, artesian water sources.
For the culture vultures, sign up for specially curated heritage trails by Geraldene's Tours in the afternoon, or hop onto Singapore’s iconic rickshaw rides for sightseeing through the streets of Chinatown. Indulge in art and create your very own Amoy Street buntings to be put up along Amoy Street, with special colouring kits for both children and adults alike as part of the organiser’s efforts to encourage appreciation of the unique architecture along Amoy Street.
The Amoy St. Bloc Party is a project under the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Streets For People programme, which provides support for community-initiated projects that transform Singapore’s streets into meaningful public spaces for everyone.
