It all started with Deerhoof. Comprising band members from the USA and Japan, Deerhoof is known to be one of the most creative and interesting bands in this decade. Sure, Deerhoof has never performed in South-East Asia, but it’s a band that is close to the heart of any alternative music lover.

Figure8 pondered over how they could bring this band to the people in Singapore. Then, a crazy idea emerged! They thought about all the amazing bands in the region and how awesome it would be to bring these bands together and play with a band like Deerhoof.

One thing led to another… and UpToTheSky Festival was born! The Festival would have a fantastic line-up of bands! Yes, you may think that this is an insane idea… but they are proud of it!

If you love chilling out with friends over great music in an intimate atmosphere, come join them on 3 December at Old School, Mount Sophia. Immerse yourself in a full day of indie music and come discover twelve of the hottest bands in South-East Asia such as The Trees & The Wild (ID), White Shoes & The Couples Company (ID), Tenderfist (MY), The Great Spy Experiment (SG), The Cambodian Space Project (KH) and much more. Our international guests include Deerhoof (USA) and Zebra & Snake (FI).

The Festival will also feature a flea market and you'll get to see a fantastic selection of independent music videos including the work of Vincent Moon, the guy behind The Take Away Shows / La Blogothèque; Dimas Wisnuwardono, one of Indonesia’s most promising filmmakers; and Ho Tzu Nyen, one of Singapore's best contemporary artists, who was featured this year at the Venice Biennale.

Check out the official line-up and schedule on!
