The tour aims to promote our very own music scene among Singaporean youth… and what better way than to invite the artists themselves to give a special performance!

Kicking off at Bishan Park Secondary School, the hour-long programme will be hosted by Gerald Koh and Joakim Gomez of 987fm (the whole music kampong‘s involved), with a special segment (okay it’s says “educational talk” here on the schedule but it’s only ten minutes…) by DJ Vanessa Fernandez of LUSH and 987fm!

The Tour will be split into two legs, April to May and July to November, to coincide with school terms. At least 10 schools have confirmed their participation in the first leg, including CHIJ Katong Convent and Yishun Junior College! In conjunction with *SCAPE’s (and everyone else’s) SG50 celebrations, a mega *SCAPE Invasion concert is also planned for August to celebrate local music.
