Youth Music Awards
26 January, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
*SCAPE The Ground Theatre

Yma Keyasset Banner V4

The inaugural Youth Music Awards (YMA) is a platform that celebrates, honours and sustains made-in-Singapore music.

Through this awards show, we aim to recognise the extraordinary achievements and contributions of local musicians. From the industry powerhouses to up-and-coming sparks, these artists create the very soundtracks to our lives – the songs that depict falling in and out of love, transitioning into adulthood, dealing with triumphs and losses, and so on. For the first edition of the Youth Music Awards, we’ve chosen the theme #CatchingFeelings.

We hope to not only recognise the achievements of Singapore’s youth talents, but to also develop and handshake these remarkable artists to industry players to propel their careers to the next level. The Youth Music Awards is brought to you by *SCAPE and organised by Invasion Singapore.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Postponement of Youth Music Awards 2020

We regret to inform you that we have decided to postpone the Youth Music Awards, originally planned to happen on 22 Feb 2020, in view of the evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) situation. This event will be postponed and transformed into an online music award. Details to be advised.

The health of our youth communities, staff, guests, performers, and business partners is our top priority. We understand the disappointment over the postponement, and we seek your understanding on this difficult decision we have to make.
