Singapore’s premier outdoor music and arts festival Neon Lights is back with yet another stellar line-up of music’s biggest and most eminent acts across two nights!  

 

Saturday 23rd November 

Brit and Grammy-Award winner Mumford & Sons puts up their first and only show in Singapore. 

Joining Mumford & Sons is British electronic-soul act HONNE. Having previously played to sold out shows in Singapore, HONNE is back by popular demand and will leave their fans wanting for more. 

Described as a ‘chameleonic curator of global sounds’, innovative multi-instrumentalist Mura Masa will play his first ever Singapore show at Neon Lights. His appetite for diverse experimentation brought him his first Grammy Award earlier this year for his remix of Haim’s Walking Away. 

Australian band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard will also command the stage with their unparalleled energy. 

Self-taught musician Cuco who shot to internet fame with his breakout mixtape Wannabewithu in 2016 is back with his new album Para Mi and fans can expect his set to showcase his song-writing evolution.

Another lyricist to check out is local quartet Shak & The Baits who will showcase their unique weaving of melancholic lyrics into dance grooves. 

Keeping things upbeat are folk-pop singer-songwriter AndreaH who has opened for Sam Smith and The Script and the beloved Mariachi Viva Mexico who brings their energetic performance onto the stage. 

 

Sunday 24th November 

Day 2’s bill is helmed by Grammy nominee HALSEY who’s known for her multi-platinum hits Ghost, Closer (x The Chainsmokers), Him & I and Eastside (x Benny Blanco and Khalid). Her 2018 record-breaking single Without Me is the longest-running Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit by a female artist in this century.Neon Lights will be Halsey’s only stop in SEAsia and the talented singer who’s gearing up for a new album later this year, promises a raw and cathartic set. 

 

Nick Murphy, previously known as Chet Faker, makes his highly anticipated return to Singapore after three years. The dynamic artist released his sophomore album Run Fast Sleep Naked earlier this year, and has played sold out concerts around the world. Charismatic both on and off-stage, Nick Murphy is expected to cover the work of his two albums – as Nick Murphy and Chet Faker. . 

Playing on the same day is electro-pop artist AURORA. Often compared to her own idol Björk, the prolific singer-songwriter is characterized by her alluring crisp voice and enigmatic personality. 

The ingenious Canadian instrumental quartet BADBADNOTGOOD last outing here was also at Neon Lights in 2016 and fans can expect more improvised tracks as they return to the stage this year. 

Both Gus Dapperton and Joan willmake their first appearance in Singapore at Neon Lights. Gus Dapperton, who released his first full studio album earlier this year averages a million monthly listeners on Spotify. Meanwhile, electronic indie duo, Joan is expected to thrill crowds with their 80s-inspired synth-pop. 

Adding to the electronic vibe, Sydney twins Cosmo’s Midnight will take to the stage with their eclectic blend of music. On top of that, Fleetmac Wood, not to be mistaken for a tribute band or the band itself, will up the ante with their repertoire of Fleetwood Mac re-edits. 

Inspired by a myriad of sounds from Indian music to reggae, local band MMLD will introduce their exceptional brand of music at the festival.     

 

Other activities 

A smattering of festival-favourites such as Silent Disco, Neon Nooks and gourmet food and drinks will also return. More of the arts and family-friendly programmes will be announced. 

Neon Lights is one of the most eagerly anticipated lifestyle events of the year. The three previous editions of the festival have attracted over 30,000 people and seen acts such as Damien Rice, Sigur Ros, Foals, Interpol and Yuna.
