After giving us a taste of what an all-female music festival can look and sound like back in 2019, the Alex Blake Charlie Sessions is making a bigger comeback this year. The sophomore outing will be a five-day affair – compared to the inaugural one-day festival – and will run from Feb 21 to Feb 25. Once again, it will take place at the cavernous and historic landmark that is the Pasir Panjang Power Station.
If the first edition brought together a coterie of musical acts and genres from the likes of electronic music superstars Nancy Whang and Rayna Russom as well as indie pop outfit Kero Kero Bonito, festival organisers 24Owls are promising an even more diverse roster of performers and programme this year.
For one, this year’s edition will kick off with a line-up of activities that spotlight the female creatives of our time from fields of literature (check out its bookstore), film (The Projector is running screenings featuring works by women and about women) and art (there is a dedicated art lane with works and merch for purchase). On Feb 24, the party crowd can also check in to The Nest Club Sessions, which runs from 9pm till late, to be entertained by Aya, EJ Missy and Kylie Nicole on the decks – all of whom are prominent female DJs from Singapore.
The festival will culminate on Feb 25 with sets by various female-fronted acts from the region and beyond that will bring with them a mix of sounds spanning genres such as indie, folk and even techno Ahead, we spotlight the names taking the stage that day.
