G-SHOCK street culture festival at Scape
Hands up if you’ve been wearing the same G-SHOCK watch from primary school all through your adolescence. G-SHOCK watches, sturdy as they are, never fail you even in the most gruelling conditions, so it’s no wonder that the brand remains to be one of the most popular watch brands in Singapore after decades of existence.
To celebrate 35 years of quality watches, G-SHOCK Singapore invites you to their first ever street festival at *SCAPE, codename G-FEST. Expect nothing less than an action-packed lineup filled with performances and workshops for a night of chill vibes. We’ve got the full event details here:
1. Groove and bop to music by local artists

If you’re ready to dance the night away, you can also look forward to PopTart resident DJ, DJ KiDG, who will be dropping some serious beats.
2. Try your hand at graffiti painting

G-SHOCK geeks will be thrilled to know that the festival will include an entire gallery full of specially curated G-SHOCK watches. The very first watch created by G-SHOCK designer Kikuo Ibe in 1983 – the DW-5000, as well as other super rare G-SHOCK watches, will be on display for you to marvel at.
You’ll also get to have a sneak peek of the latest watches designed in collaboration with Sneaker Freaker and N.Hoolywood. And, we heard that you can even win these limited ed watches too!
5. Indulge in food like pasta, takoyaki and skewers
Stop by the food stalls in the festival to eat some gourmet pasta by Italian bistro Pasta Queen, takoyaki from Tako Queen, Japanese BBQ skewers from highly raved Yakiniku Oh, and other treats with reckless abandon.
6. Smash things in The Fragment Room

Head to The Fragment Room’s pop-up at G-FEST, where you can smash your problems away. Just strap on the protective gear and have a swing at the glass bottle which contains all your stress and frustrations.
If you purchase selected watches at any of the G-Factory outlets and authorised G-SHOCK retailers in Singapore, you’ll get free access to The Fragment Room. Alternatively, you can pay to walk-in and get your kick out of smashing things too.
7. Sign up for a basketball tournament to win attractive prizes
Boost your adrenaline and let the dopamine rush through your veins in the G-FEST Basketball tournament. Here’s how it works: form a 3-man team with two other friends and sign up for the basketball tournament where you’ll be pitted against other festival-goers.
The competition is intense, but worth it for the sweet gain at the end of the finish line. Winners walk away with a GMW-B5000-1DR Resin watch worth $699. And 2nd and 3rd place aren’t too shabby, either – you’ll get watches from the GW-B56000-2DR and GBD-800 series too.
