Okay, so F1 is overrated, and there isn’t an election happening anymore. So what else can you get up to on the later half of this month?

We picked out 10 events and new places to check out while waiting for September to end. Psst, there’s free cake at one of those new places too!

Play & Discover

1. Local Motion by 4Fingers x Eatmepoptart

Munch on chicken wings and listen to good local music!

Eatmepoptart is doing their part on encouraging local music, and 4 Fingers, well, we never really expected a fried chicken chain to support local music, but what would you know. You can expect the likes of Lost Weekend, Jasmine Sokko, Bakers in Space, Jojo (not the Jojo that sang Too Little Too Late) and – of course – Eatmepoptart. #4Fgoeslocal indeed.

The best part about this music festival is that there’s no entry fee! All you have to do is sign up at this link before tomorrow! Or before they run out of tickets.

That being said, we aren’t sure if there will be free chicken wings as not much details has been released. But one can always hope!

Local Motion by 4Fingers x Eatmepoptart
Venue: Fort Gate at Fort Canning Park
When: 23 Sep
