Fest Events International was incorporated in 2010, to manage Singapore Drum Fest (founded in 2007) and also to accommodate the growing need to run several other events & festivals.
We have organized multiple large- and small-scale events to promote music appreciation in Singapore. By collaborating with international musicians, some of whom are Grammy Award-winning artists, Fest Events continues to reach out to the masses via concerts and by arranging master classes conducted by these professionals.
Singapore Drum Fest was setup with a simple agenda of propelling drumming arts in Singapore. Gathering local talents & renowned Drummers, Percussionist & Bands from around the world, Singapore Drum Fest aims to educate & advance the drumming craft of our local scene.
Drum-Off Global, plus Singapore's own Drum-Off and drum-clinics were also introduced to further provide local talents an avenue to hone and compete their skills, enabling them to grow as musicians. By doing so, Fest Events International has helped many Singapore Music and Drum Schools increase in student enrolment because the fervour of drumming was set aflame in Singapore since 2007 June. On top of that, since 2007, many local talents were being recognised and secured endorsements by renowned drumming equipment manufacturers. This has boosted the music industry in a special way through drumming events organized by Fest Events International.
ULTIMATE DRUMMERS WEEKEND, a new subsidiary event under Singapore Drum Fest created in 2016 is the representation of the longest standing drum weekend in the history of Singapore. We have featured more than 50 big name musicians and definitely excellent drummers in the past 12 years. Its a weekend of intensive music performances and drum masterclasses mixed and mashed up to offer audience a super memorable long weekend! As another part of ULTIMATE DRUMMERS WEEKEND, Saturday is also the Grand Finals of Drum-Off Global which is an extremely important half of the weekend. This is a worldwide contest where the best amateur drummers of the world travel to Singapore to compete for the highest honour of being crowned the Grand Champion of Drum-Off Global.
The goal of ULTIMATE DRUMMERS WEEKEND in its totality, aims to build up and raise the worldwide fever for excellent music appreciation and music education. To strengthen a sustainable musician career life by empowering them to see the potential of success when they set their sights on higher ideals.
