Prior to the festival, seven emerging bands from the local music scene were selected to be mentored by industry experts in a programme called Baybeats Budding Bands. Six of these bands are set to play the Baybeats stage as a cumulative final performance showcasing their craft.

Joining them are other highly-anticipated names like local midwest emo/math pop band Forests, post-rock quartet Astreal, and rap metal band Greyhoundz which hails from the Philippines.
