 Popular local performers - Jack & Rai, Jive Talkin, Sambamasala, and Too Much Drama are also featured in the action-packed music programme to Rock, Ruck, and Rumble with 55,000 fans from across the world.

Famed for their on-stage costumes, catchy tunes and lyrics, Village People has entertained millions for four decades with their instantly recognisable dance hits such as Y.M.C.A., Go West and In the Navy, which have the power to convince even the most reluctant to get up and boogie the night away.

Fans of Singapores music scene are in for a treat too as four of the most popular homegrown acts - Jack & Rai, Jive Talkin, Sambamasala, and Too Much Drama - will get up-close-and-personal with fans at the FunZone at the 100PLUS Promenade with live performances throughout the two tournament days.

David Lim, Chairman of Rugby Singapore, said, We are absolutely thrilled to have Village People headlining the music line up at this years HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens. This iconic band needs no introduction and their music is the perfect fit with the carnival atmosphere we are creating at the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens. Together with Jack & Rai, Jive Talkin, Sambamasala, and Too Much Drama, there is something for every fan in the stadium. With the fantastic programme of rugby, music, and kids entertainment, the Singapore Sevens is indeed back bigger, better, and bolder!

Music will also be in the air even before play begins, as Music After 7s opens in Clarke Quay on Friday 27th April, a day before the tournament starts.

Featuring some of Clarke Quays best local and regional bands, the three-night music festival will kick off with Celtic band Gan Ainm, who has built up an extensive repertoire of Irish and Top 40s covers over the last fourteen years playing at McGettigans. On Saturday (28 April), rock bands Sterofly and Sepia who both play at Highlander Clarke Quay will take to the stage to entertain fans with their renditions of various rock genres. The festival closes out on Sunday night (29 April) with Paulaner Clarke Quays Singaporean-Ukranian band Rockweller, who will drop tunes influenced by a range of genres from glam rock to heavy metal and even punk.

Jean Ng, Director, Sports, Singapore Tourism Board, said, The fringe offerings around the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens like Music After 7s which falls under the Singapore Rugby Carnival would add another dimension to the fan experience this year. Together with Singapores eclectic mix of vibrant dining and family-friendly lifestyle options, visiting fans can expect a unique, all-round experience beyond the world-class sporting action.

At the Music After 7s, HSBC Singapore Rugby 7s ticket-holders can enjoy various F&B promotions throughout Clarke Quay. There will also be a free shuttle bus service from the National Stadium to Clarke Quay for fans on both Saturday and Sunday evenings.
