Great global music festivals around the world have been seen, utilising the power of music to promote worthy causes. In the same vein, IGNITE! Music festival aims to achieve that very notion by its festival theme of Passion & Compassion in hopes of promoting youth volunteerism through music.
In 2014, we’ve incepted Project Passion (Beyond Social Services), Project Compassion #1 (Bright Hill Evergreen Home) and Project Compassion #2 (APSN Charity Carnival). Recently in 2015, the students were involved in Welcome to My World Concert produced by Very Special Arts (VSA).
IGNITE! Music Festival is an annual, student-driven music festival that will be happening in the month of August. After 8 successful runs since 2008, Republic Polytechnic and The Republic Cultural Centre (TRCC) is pleased to present IGNITE! Music Festival 2016.
Last year, the festival attracted 14,000 gig goers. Being the only Polytechnic with a music festival of this scale, IGNITE! is the most exciting outdoor event in the local and school music scene. Known for its extensive technical stage set-up, concert goers can look forward to a spectacular state-of-the-art audio visual experience that will blow their minds.
