Singapore’s premier outdoor music and arts festival Neon Lights is set to be in Singapore on 23-24 November 2019. This year, the festival returns to Fort Canning Green at the recently rejuvenated Fort Canning Park, taking advantage of the hill that doubles as a natural amphitheatre and providing an intimate outdoor experience for all.


Dubbed as "the region's answer to Coachella" by The Business Times and "an interactive roller coaster of music-driven energy and emotions" by Billboard Magazine, this year's festival is set to continue to exhilarate and excite!

 

Joining this year’s host of international and global musicians is Brit and Grammy-Award winning British band Mumford & Sons, who will put up their first ever show in Singapore and Southeast Asia on the Neon Lights stage on Saturday 23 November. The band has headlined some of the world’s biggest music festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella and with just 7,000 tickets available for their first Singapore show, fans are encouraged to secure their tickets early so as to avoid disappointment.

 

Playing ahead of Mumford & Sons on the main stage on Saturday 23 November will be a band who has already established their popularity in Singapore – British electronic-soul act Honne. Each of the band’s four previous Singapore shows have sold out months in advance, most recently with two nights at The Capitol Theatre in March this year. Masters at setting up an idyllic and almost addictive ambience, fans should expect nothing less than a mesmerising performance as they deliver some of their most popular tracks such as Coastal Love and Me & You from their two evocative studio albums Warm on a Cold Night and Love Me/ Love Me Not. 

 

Grammy nominee HALSEY and Norwegian electro-pop artist AURORA will be the exciting addition to its Sunday bill. The singer-songwriters join Mumford & Sons and Honne on the main stage on 24th November. 

 

Known for her unapologetic lyrics and multi-platinum hits such as Ghost, Closer (ft. The Chainsmokers) Him & I,and Eastside (ft. Benny Blanco and Khalid), HALSEY currently has two studio albums under her belt and is gearing up to release her third later this year. She most recently released her powerful new single Nightmare, which examines the expectations placed on women in our society and proceeds to shatter them. This outspoken new single follows her 2018 record-breaking Without Me, which is the longest-running Billboard to 100 top 10 hit by a female artist in this century. HALSEY is putting up her only performance in Southeast Asia right here on the Neon Lights stage, and fans can expect nothing less than a raw and cathartic set from the boundary-pushing American. 

 

Playing on the same day as HALSEY on Sunday, 24th November, is electro-pop artist AURORA. Oft compared to her own idol Björk, the prolific singer-songwriter has released two Eps and two studio albums to date. AURORA’s most recent work was produced in two parts – EP Infections of a Different Kind – Step 1 released in 2018 and the follow up studio album A Different Kind of Human – Step 2 released just last month. Characterized by her alluring crisp voice and enigmatic personality, the Queendom singer will be a most enchanting act to take in live at Fort Canning Park, surrounded much greenery that inspires her music. 

The family-friendly festival promises an electrifying line-up of international and local music acts, a dynamic arts programme, and a ton of fun for everyone! The three previous editions of the festival have attracted over 30,000 people featuring acts such as Damien Rice, Sigur Ros, Chic/Nile Rodgers, Foals, Interpol and Yuna. Neon Lights has quickly established itself as one of the most eagerly anticipated lifestyle events of the year.

More acts and the arts programme will be announced later. Fans are encouraged to secure their tickets early so as to avoid disappointment.
