  • CELEBRATING SINGAPORE'S BUSKERS

    We are working with Singapore's buskers to bring more vibrancy and entertainment to the Bay during DBS Marina Regatta, Singapore’s Biggest BayFest! Aligned with our positioning to enable you to Live more, Bank less, we will be offering platforms to showcase their talent and to seize life’s opportunities.

  • How it works

    1. Busk for good

    Buskers will collect contributions from the public as they perform

    DBS celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018. As we mark this milestone, DBS will be donating $500 to charity for each hour each busker performs this weekend, up to a cap of $25,000. The funds will go towards preparing and training young adults supported by Pathlight and Autism Resource Center to enter the workforce and build their own livelihood.

    2. Wow the audience

    Buskers will get to engage and entertain crowds

    Buskers will also get to be featured on DBS and Bandwagon's channels.

    3. Grow as an artist

    We want to help our street artists live their dreams to the fullest. Besides cash prizes, the top buskers will also receive artist development prizes sponsored by DBS.

    Depending on discipline, this may include instrument lessons, talent mentorship, and other related classes to help buskers get better at their craft.
