For those who like it loud and hard

Rock On 2017

For those who want to say 2016 goodbye with a big kick up its ass, there’s no better place to do it than Rock On 2017 at The Float @ Marina Bay. Of course, with Singapore being Singapore, this needed to be more than just a concert: not only is it headlined by Alicia Keys and Hoobastank, but it’s also taking place on the world’s largest floating stage. For concert tickets that start from SG$48, you can expect eight jam-packed hours of entertainment, ending in an eight-minute fireworks display at the stroke of midnight. Aside from the two headliners, Taiwanese pop star Rainie Yang, Singaporean band Shirlyn & The UnXpected, Shin, Penny Tai, Eric Chou and many more are slated to perform.

Location: The Float @ Marina Bay, Singapore.
