Information


Hafiz (b.1985) also known as 'Hafiz Bastard' in the punk community, is an active member in the local and international punk hardcore scene since he was 15 years old. His involvement in the local punk scene started out when he was 13, when he started reading local fanzines and going to gigs held at the Youth Park and The Substation in the late 90s. Hafiz is the co-founder of Singapore's first autonomous punk run venue, BLACKHOLE 212, which ran from 2009 - 2010. The space was later shut down due to negative pressure from the state. Currently playing in active hardcore/punk bands like Daily Ritual, Lubricant and Sial, Hafiz has been playing and touring internationally. Daily Ritual toured Europe for a month in June 2015, playing 27 shows in 27 different cities including Europe's biggest DIY hardcore punk festival K-TOWN HARDCORE FEST in Copenhagen, Denmark.
