“I feel so honoured to be a small part of Make the Future – the whole thing has a really positive vibe about it. It’s so important for everyone to be aware of environmental issues, and to educate young people about them. I eventually want children, and when I do have them, I ​want them to inherit a better world that works together to look after the environment.” -- Pixie Lott

Since 2005, Nathan Hartono (向洋) has been a prominent presence in Singapore’s arts scene – having done work in music, on stage, as well as on screen. Starting with an amateur singing competition, he has gone on to perform on hundreds of stages around the world, from stadium shows (NDP 2008/2015, Youth Olympics, Asian Youth Games, Stefanie Sun Tour), to selling out theatres (Esplanade Presents: Nathan Hartono 2008/2014, Pangdemonium! Productions: Spring Awakening, Next to Normal).

In July of 2016, he staged his biggest solo concert at the Esplanade Concert Hall. He has most recently been seen on screen, starring on HBO’s Halfworlds, as well as popular China-based singing competition, Sing! China, in which he emerged as first runner-up.

Disco Hue

Catch electronic-pop act Disco Hue in person on Sunday, 19 March 2017 at 11:30 AM. 

A fresh mix of electronic dance music best seen live, this four-piece act from Singapore was formed in early 2012 by Synth Player, Zie, and former front woman, Christina. Influenced by acts like Daft Punk, CHVRCHES and Ella Riot, the band composes tunes with electronic hooks, infectious melodies and groovy bass lines.

The band has progressively changed its lineup before the addition of current front woman, Sherlyn, in late 2014. Disco Hue's debut EP, Arcade, is out now on all digital stores. Their single, Gotta Find You, (released in early 2016 on YouTube) is a tennis-styled lyric video that received enthusiastic audience response within the week of release. Gotta Find You and their second single, I'll Be Waiting have received much airtime – especially on 98.7FM and Lush 99.5FM.

Take Two

Catch indie pop quintet Take Two performing live on Sunday, 19 March 2017 at 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM.

In a little over two years, Take Two has gone from playing covers in a dingy university dormitory, to playing for audiences in Malaysia, Thailand, Spain, and most recently for China's Midi Music Festival 2015/16. 

The dulcetness of Peng Sing’s jazz-inspired guitar work is paired perfectly with David and Jeryl’s rhythmic synergy. Topped with Paddy’s warm, soaring vocals, a sonic combination of anthemic island-pop, indie rock, with a smattering of jazz emerges. From Kimbra to The Killers, Bombay Bicycle Club to Last Dinosaurs, and good old 90s pop – Take Two's music is the by-product of reverence for the maestros and taking to heart the élan of great pop-sensibilities.

The band has opened for Travis, Walk The Moon and Death Cab for Cutie. They have also been featured regularly in music festivals like Music Matters, Baybeats, F1 Singapore Grand Prix, and  DBS Marina Regatta.
