Company behind Artbox S'pore wants artistes to perform at event for free - Mothership.sg

There is no mention of payment. Performers are invited to perform in exchange for “maximum branding exposure”. The artistes wouldn’t even be performing, instead they would be “busking”. This is a term more commonly associated with performing in the street, instead of an organised event like Flashbang. The mention that “public contributions (are) accepted.” This means that Invade expects the public to be responsible for compensating the artistes. Bragging about the previous success of Artbox Singapore, the email mentions that 660,000 visitors attended the previous event, which made S$20 million. They put a conservative estimate of expected visitors for Flashbang at one million. And yet, they still can’t find the money to pay their performing artists.
