Hand it to the powers that be in Singapore. They've truly gotten the young people of the nation state engaged in some kind of creative and worthwhile activity.

Baybeats is an alternative festival organised by Esplanade, with its deafening rock concerts and display of graffiti art. Some of these are actually rather good...
