This is the time all music lovers have been waiting for. With all the line up of music festivals awaiting for us, especially Coachella 2013, I didn't hesitate to attend the most recent hip hop music fest here in Singapore held last April 6 at Fort Canning Park.

The Big Wig Music Festival had this in statement in their official website saying,
"Witness the birth of an eclectic music phenomenon as an assortment of bigwig acts flock to the little red dot for a sensational auditory celebration. With a killer line-up of international and local acts, the Big Wig Music Festival is set to take revellers to a stunning kaleidoscopic soundscape.

The 10-hour music festival kicked off a little late due to the rain, but it definitely did not stop the crowd from enjoying the music and climbing up the countless steps of Fort Canning Green to join the party.

DJ Theory & Captain Planet got the party started with reggae and hip-hop mixes, kicking off the festival for good. Singapore-bred Masia One hosted the event, performing some of her popular hits. Lady Leshurr from UK amazed the crowd with her fast rapping, with a lot more attitude. Singapore's very own rap star Kevin Lester aka The Lion City Boy proved that local music can be just as good.

Other prestigious international acts that performed were the The Bizarre Ride live with Pharcyde, Captain Planet, and The Cuban Brothers. A series of renowned local acts such as Wicked Aura and Pushin'On were also featured at this exclusive music event.

The festival made it enjoyable to dance with strangers and friends, it was perfect for the rave. Until the next Big Wig Festival in Singapore (hopefully), enjoy the pictures!
