Music, marketplaces, and a good dose of art are on this weekend’s roster
9MCM Jubilee Marketplace
With gourmet food, coffee, fashion, and more from over 30 merchants, the third annual 9MCM market isn't your average flea. For Singapore's jubilee year, merchants will be showcasing 50 unique creations inspired by our little red dot. Our pick? Kopi & Teh cocktails from Nuevo Vino.
20 and 21 June at the APS Lifestyle Gallery, 9 Muthuraman Chetty Road. More details here.
Singapore might be small, but take a trip to the hidden corners of places like Kampong Glam and Chinatown and you'll be surprised by what you're missing. 'Idyllic Landscapes' is an exhibition that covers just that, with works showcasing Singapore's heritage districts in ink, watercolour, acrylic, and gouache. In the face of rapid modernisation, the exhibition delves into the importance of capturing these historical landmarks in all their unseen splendour.
Worldwide Music Day is on 21 June, and there's no better way to prepare for it than with a DJ gig. Fête de la Musique gets a chilled out upgrade at Asian-fusion restaurant TAPOW, with DJ Andrew M laying down some funk, soul, hip-hop, and pretty much anything you'd groove to. So grab a beer, order some street food, and wind down this weekend.
Fête de la Musique @ Tapow is on 20 June at 7pm. More details here.
Crossroads @ Red Baron
Music, arts, film, food, and drinks – it's the whole package over at Crossroads. Their special Fête de la Musique lineup is a unique one, ranging from DJs to percussion crew Djembe Singapore. The grub here isn't too shabby either and includes craft beers from Red Baron and 3D-printed food from FabCafe. With documentary screenings, crafts and more to keep you busy, Crossroads is the perfect way to end the workweek.
This one's for the hands-on crowd. A three-day event, The Local People Cuts & Coffee Art Market is chock-full of DIY craft workshops. If you're looking to spruce up on your home decor, you won't be disappointed. Gents should also look out for the launch of new barbershop The Midnight Coiffeur, happening at the same space.
19 to 21 June at 101 Soo Chow Road. More details here.
