On Monday, January 27th, local party collective Ice Cream Sundays and Singapore-based record label and DJ crew Darker Than Wax will collaborate for the fourth edition of their ‘Open Door’ party series. Taking place during the Chinese New Year public holiday from 3pm to 10:30pm, ‘Ice Cream Sundays x Darker Than Wax: Open Door 2020’ will be held in a truly one-of-a-kind venue – the former ship repairs factory at 2 Cavan Road.
Early bird tickets are on sale now, starting at $15!
With a talented and eclectic lineup of DJs helming the decks, dancers will be treated to a range of sounds traversing the global dance music spectrum, from Afrobeat to Asian funk, Brazilian boogie, Chicago house and more. Music will come courtesy of Darker Than Wax mainstays FUNK BSTRD, Kaye, RAH, William J, Daryl C, and ERI, as well as Ice Cream Sundays resident selectors Bongomann, Muto Masashi, and Toppings.
The event’s exceptionally unique venue, a defunct ship repairs factory in the heart of Jalan Besar, represents an era in Singapore’s past before the city-state reclaimed much of the land along its southern coast. With its fascinating history and sprawling, warehouse-like interior, the space will provide partygoers with a thrilling alternative to the familiar bars and clubs of the local circuit.
Also taking place within the venue is ‘TWENTY TWENTY’, an art pop-up by event hosts Singapore Arts Club. ‘TWENTY TWENTY’ features the group exhibition ‘Strange Things’, which includes large-scale installations by artists such as Singaporean Dawn Ng and Vietnam’s Tuan Mami. These installations will provide the backdrop for ‘Open Door’, forming an immersive audio-visual experience for attendees.
A range of food and beverages will be available throughout the day. The event will feature a pop-up bar serving premium spirits and Lion Brewery Co’s refreshing craft beers, an on-site food vendor, as well as customizable gelato popsicles from Popbar SG.
