Singapore Rockfest 2024 / Heatwave Forces Venue Changes

Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen, Marty Friedman and more are ready to rock Singapore Rockfest 2024. A heat wave has meant that several bands have been moved from Fort Canning to The Star Theater and The Capitol Theater.

The Singapore Rockfest 2024 event from LAMC Productions, which was planned for all bands to be held again at Fort Canning Park, had to be moved to an indoor venue due to the hot weather currently hitting Singapore.
