The wait is over! We’re excited to announce our Phase 2 Artist Line-Up who’ll be joining us at Garden Beats 2020! Presenting a myriad of genres across our Garden Stage and Sunshine Stage, we know for sure there’ll be plenty of dancing to do at Fort Canning this leap year!
Get ready for our international acts – the mystical Blond:ish, the elusive VIken Arman, explorer of multiple modalities Crussen, and genre-bending The Illustrious Blacks!
Here is a little preview of who they are!
Vivie-ann Bakos takes sole charge of BLOND:ISH as she steps into a new phase in history. She not only drops beautiful house and techno sounds, but also shares her ethos on how the world might look and sound when we decide to inject a little more love, thought and passion into everything we do.
Her Bye Bye Plastic campaign launched recently is evidence aimed at persuading dance music venues across the world to quit using single-use plastics.
Viken Arman pushes the boundaries of electronic music by combining ancient melodies with electronic beats to create a vibe that goes beyond dance music, taking rich cultures on mystical magical journeys and exploring boundless possibilities.
Originally from Sweden, Crussen surrounded himself with his passion for playing the French horn in an orchestra and drumming in a hardcore punk band. Crussen picked up music again after moving to Oslo, Norway in 2005, and ever since, producing became a daily calling.
The Illustrious Blacks describes their origins in galactic terms where an “inexplicable ultramagnetic pull” brought two kings of separate planets, Manchildblack and Monstah Black together. Manchildblack’s exquisite vocals and strong messages combined with Monstah Black’s stunning performances filled with gender-bending fashion and spacey persona often leave their audience hypnotised.
Don’t miss our supporting acts as well – a passionate and eclectic selection of talents – Bongomann, Brendon P, DJ Aurora, James Selva, JustMack, KFC, Orio and Toppings!
