The latest installment of curated creative market organized by SATS.Co called Sunday Market is back last weekend on April 7th – 8th, 2018. After leaving Townsquare Surabaya as its host for several editions, finally the festival which began their journey there returned to the spot where they started. It brought back nostalgia of their past events there like their “NYC”, “London Calling” or “Tokyo Rising” editions. This time they rounded back the newest edition as the first volume of 2018 and it kinda made sense to hold it at their original venue. The two-day affair attracted a huge crowd of youth as well as visitors from various ages to witness a selection of fashion, food & beverage, and lifestyle booths. There were music performances from Nonaria (Jakarta), Nosstress (Bali), Ayren Mayden, Diorama, PNHG and Niko Staza that entertained the visitors throughout the evening. Per usual, flea market will always be available on any Sunday Market and this time a whopping 31 tenants brought their best secondhand stuff in a very reasonable price.
Creative brands that provide leather goods, t-shirt, leather footwear, patterned shirt, and many others were available at the market. These brands do not only come from Surabaya or neighboring town, brands that came from Denpasar like Slashrock also opened their booth there. For children, various activities and engagements like coloring session, veggie stamp making, donut topping workshop, and an area for kids’ play can be done and enjoyed at the spot. Nonaria, a female trio from Jakarta who brought their vintage pop jazz flair entertained the visitors with their top-notch performances. Wearing traditional ethnic ensemble, they greeted the Surabaya citizens warmly after performing their opening song. Nosstress brought their full band format to the audience and sang folk songs from their album “Ini Bukan Nosstress” and many more on the second day.
Using yellow and blue as their color theme for this edition, Sunday Market Vol.1 “Bringing All Together” exuded a warm and cheerful spirit during the celebration. Unlike the previous volume that we thought didn’t bring much coherence through the whole area, the organizer really took the time to make sure that the theme was truly applied to almost all area. A little cinema that was erected inside the venue also stood out with its yellow box, and the screening was also held as a step towards “Film Musik Makan 2018” festivities. Attracting more or less 18,000 visitors during their two-day celebration, we hope to see a themed creative market on Sunday Market for their next edition and a more beautifully decorated stages and photo spots!
