Media Release

Rock & Indie Festival (RIF) is returning for its sixth edition on 10 and 11 February 2023 at LASALLE College of the Arts, with a lineup of eight acts including headliners Aggressive Raisin Cat and Krunkle the Band.

Since its first edition in 2017, RIF has provided a platform for established and up-and-coming local musicians to perform and showcase their music. RIF 2023 will continue to carry the torch of highlighting the talents of Singapore’s rock and indie music scene. As Singapore’s only music festival focusing on the rock and indie genres, RIF is dedicated to serving as a platform for music lovers to discover and support new local musicians.

RIF 2023 will feature bands and solo artists performing live at LASALLE College of the Arts. Following the easing of COVID-19 measures, RIF 2023 aims to rekindle the passion and energy of festival-goers as in-person live music performances make their return.

RIF 2023 is sure to have festival-goers jamming out to top original hits, and even songs that will premiere at the festival. Attendees can look forward to performances by LAYYI, Made With Monsters, Krysta Joy and Aggressive Raisin Cat on Day 1, while Day 2 of the festival will feature MRTNS, Venus Landing and Krunkle the Band.

Also performing at RIF 2023 is monda(e), a four-piece instrumental band hand-picked from open call auditions.

RIF is presented by LASALLE's School of Contemporary Music, with students from the BA(Hons) Arts Management and Diploma in Audio Production programmes collaborating to organise, curate and execute the festival.

“RIF is an incredible platform for us to gather and delve into the world of local music. By supporting established and emerging bands, the team at RIF hopes that the audience will have two fun and music-filled evenings that builds a desire to support talents in Singapore,” says BA(Hons) Arts Management student Nadhra Hasri, the festival lead for RIF 2023.
