SUNDOWN FESTIVAL 2013 UPS ASIAN COUNTRIES TALLY TO EIGHT

Rock and pop acts from Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines set to wow at the largest Asian music, food and cultural festival

Singapore, 9 October 2013  Red Spade Entertainment (RSE), the organiser behind the annual Sundown Festival has announced the acts descending on the grounds of F1 Pit Building at Marina Promenade this 16th November.

The much-anticipated talent lineup for the fifth annual Sundown Festival is an unrivaled gathering of 10 established and up-and-coming headlining acts from eight Asian countries—Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand, including Screw, D=OUT, AOA, Bosco Wong, Shao Yu Han, Yoga Lin, Nidji, Rico Blanco, Rock Steddy and No More Tear. Drawing fans from all across Southeast Asia, Sundown Festival turns Marina Promenade into an Asian music and cultural central for an eight-hour long celebration— completed by an Asian street food village supported by leading food portal in Singapore, Hungrygowhere.com—establishing itself as a must-see event.

Tickets (Cat 1 at $138 and Cat 2 at $98, Early Bird Tickets at $68 are sold out) for this live music event are on sale on SISTIC and pay no booking fee at http://www.sundownfestival.sg

Artistes’ line-up overview

2013’s edition of the festival sees the addition of three Southeast Asian nations to the musical melee: Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines. Known for their ‘rockability’ and mastery in alternative music, it is no wonder the likes of Nidji, No More Tear and Rock Steddy and Rico Blanco are fronting these tri-nation sensations. Continuing on the ride on the surge in popularity and demand for Japanese glam-metal rock and “visual style” of music, visual kei bands Screw and D=OUT (pronounced as ‘doubt’) are set to thrill festival goers.

K-pop fanatics can expect some eye candy and sugar rush in the form of Ace of Angels (AOA) a truly unique versatile music group that interchange between a five-member female band and a seven-member idol group. All eight members from AOA will be making their full appearance at the festival to lend their full support at the festival.

Finally, this line-up of musical entertainment will not be given justice without the vocal prowess of 2 Adonia Shao Yu Han from the People’s Republic of China and an injection of familiar names the likes of Mandopop Taiwanese boy wonder Yoga Lin and Cantopop and TVB star Bosco Wong.

The unique proposition of Sundown Festival as the only annual music festival in southeast Asia to unite Asian music and culture speaks volumes of Singapore’s strong reputation as a centre for creativity and innovation in the region. As consumers become increasingly discerning, such home-grown entertainment content offering exciting and refreshing experiences will set Singapore apart as a global city with an energetic and inventive entertainment scene.

Festival goers can look forward not only to eight hours of non-stop entertainment but also bona fide street food sourced from all the eight Asian countries and fringe cultural performances such as “the barong” (storytelling dance form) from Indonesia, Tinikling B-boys (a mix of traditional pre-Spanish tap dancing with bamboo poles and breakdancing) from the Philippines and muaythai from Thailand.

Undoubtedly the largest Asian music festival: Sundown

“Year five of Sundown Festival is a milestone,” said Samantha Chan, director of the Festival. “We have set a simple goal: to bring the burgeoning stars in Asian rock and pop music together for the best show in the region, a show that the world can only see in Singapore. And that is exactly what we have done; these acts we have brought in this year will rock your socks off, bring pride to being Asian and prove once again, there is no place more exciting than Singapore’s Marina Promenade this 16th November,” added Chan.

Motorola: “Project Ara” the next wave of smart-phone innovation, inspired by Phonebloks by Dave Hakkens.

Hey Folks!

Here’s another interesting insight I would like to share with you all!

With the latest iPhone 5S & Samsung Note-III popping out in the market like no-bodies-business, I was was wondering if…

you have heard about…Phonebloks?

blokstore1

Earlier this year, I posted a video on my Facebook Page to share with you all about this amazing concept that is going to revolutionize the way we think, feel and use Smart-Phones.This brilliant concept was first introduced by Dave Hakkens, a Designer from the Netherlands who like to make machines, videos and vegetables.

The whole idea emerged from this simple thought which Dave explains: “A phone only lasts a couple of years before it breaks or becomes obsolete. Although it’s often just one part which killed it we throw everything away since it’s almost impossible to repair or upgrade. ” This led to him into thinking about why not make something better that doesn’t have to be destroyed after a few use and we even customise it to suit our needs and wants?

Check out this video out if you haven’t!

 

Well, I guess many of you might be thinking right now..”Nah..it’s never gonna happen”, “No company in the world will be crazy enough to spend that kind of time and resources to make it”. There simply too many interested parties we have to engage and that is not likely to happen with this ever-competitive market!

what the phonebloks needs

Guess What! It’s happening right this very moment as we speak!

Motorola, is now one of many companies such as YouTube that is owned by Google. One very good reason why this possibility can become a reality.

Today, I would like to introduce to you the next phase of Motorola, called:

 

“Project Ara”

ara1blogpost

Project Ara, described by the Google subsidiary as “a free, open hardware platform for creating highly modular smartphones”.

A paragraph taken from Motorola’s Official Blog has this to say: “The design for Project Ara consists of what we call an endoskeleton (endo) and modules.  The endo is the structural frame that holds all the modules in place. A module can be anything, from a new application processor to a new display or keyboard, an extra battery, a pulse oximeter–or something not yet thought of!”

device-049458bbcff603e9316248aa02eaeedd

This pretty much answers most of your doubts, they are thinking BIG! With this thought in mind, we can rest assure that the next line of product coming out from hereon will most certainly blow our minds!

I know many of you out there might be still be skeptical about whether they will succeed or not. But hey, after all, Motorola did developed the first truly global communication network using a set of 66 satellites on May 5th, 1997.

Have a little faith in them!!

Paul Eremenko on behalf of the Motorola Advanced Technology and Projects group, Project Ara Team has this to say:

“We’ve done deep technical work. Dave created a community. The power of open requires both. So we will be working on Project Ara in the open, engaging with the Phonebloks community throughout our development process”.

ara2blogpost

That’s not all!

Motorola is inviting people across the globe to become Ara Scouts. Over the next year, you can collaborate with them on “Special Missions” that will shape the direction of Project Ara.

These series of “missions” that will ask you to share your impressions, feedback and ideas about Project Ara. You’ll use the free “dscout” app to participate. If together we can make Project Ara a success, 100 of the most active scouts will receive an early release version at no cost.
