Goodbye Garden Concert Series

Welcome To The Machine
Luke Buirski Trio

Goodbye Garden is a series of concerts featuring a wide variety of musicians and bands who have all performed at The Substation Garden over the past 31 years. Since commencing in 1990, The Substation Garden has been operated by The Substation, Fat Frog, and Timbre (since 2005). In that time The Substation Garden has hosted thousands of gigs and supported so many bands of different colours, feels and vibes. Expect an eclectic mix of cover bands, tribute acts, Singapore Original songwriters, and beloved home-grown bands.

Goodbye Garden was created by re-thinking and re-purposing space in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, driven by the desire to support our bands and the music community. This series celebrates the history and memories of one of Singapore’s iconic arts spaces, reminding everyone that together we can all keep our music alive.

The Substation Garden adheres to strict safe-distancing measures. Tickets are sold according to restricted zones. Concert rules apply.
