Rock and Indie Festival (RIF) 2019

September 15, 2019 | Highlights

An annual music festival held at LASALLE College of the Arts, RIF is a college initiative run by a committee comprising student interns led and mentored by college faculty. Started in 2017, it is a platform for local musicians to showcase their talents on a professional stage and expand their audience reach. RIF features LASALLE students and alumni as well as well-known acts. Beyond being just a music festival, RIF is a celebration of music bringing musicians and music enthusiasts together and making it a must-go on the annual festival calendar.

This year’s installment featured performances by young students from Nexus International School who were selected via an open call, and also incorporated a band competition that was originally a student project, the winner of which got to perform at RIF 2019.

The Foundation is proud to be a returning and main sponsor for this event.
