Music Matters Live 2017 will be showcasing more than 40 bands and artists from 12 countries in Singapore starting September 9 until September 13, 2017.

Touted as Asia’s premier independent music festival, Music Matters Live 2017 will happen at CHIJMES and a few Timbre outlets. There will also be a closing party at Hard Rock Cafe during the last day. We actually have three of our very own local performers that will be present at the event.

Artist Lineup from the Philippines


After launching their own EP, The Benjamins are starting to grow their audience more through genuine songs and performances nationwide. Now, the songwriting twin-sibling duo will be bringing their talent at the Music Matters Live 2017 in Singapore.

Kiana Valenciano

Others know her as the popular Gary V’s daughter, but Kiana Valenciano is slowly making a name of her own in the local music industry. Her “Does She Know” track with Curtismith went viral a few months back.

Reese Lansangan

The multi-talented Reese Lansangan will also be present at the Music Matters Live 2017 event in Singapore. Will we hear songs from her recent albums “Arigato, Internet!” and “Of Sound Mind & Memory”?
