While punters and industry members alike mapping out their stacked itineraries, promising Singapore acts are gearing up to show Australia how it’s done.

2018 saw Ric’s Backyard come to life with acts from the Southeast Asian country. Now, the showcase, Hear65, returns.

This year, the event especially focusses on diversity. Today, we’re taking a good look at our picks for who’s gonna be a hit at BIGSOUND.


Post-hardcore legends Caracal have been a staple act in their home country for over ten years. Having supported the likes of Underoath, The Used, Funeral For a Friend and more, they’ve carved quite the loyal following. That following has seen them taking to numerous festivals, including Summer Sonic, in Japan, and they’ve already toured the USA, Canada and Malaysia/

Caracal’s new number ‘Mouth of Madness’ is a testament to their status as one of Singapore’s most respected act.
