While we’re waiting for the haze to clear, it’s time to start planning our schedules for the end-of-the-year festival season! Time to start getting out of the white cubes and air-conditioning, and enjoy some art in the outdoors!
First up, we’ve got Neon Lights Festival, organised by a team of international award-winning festival experts, including cofounders of Electric Picnic (IRE), Clockenflap (HK) and Harvest Festival (AUS).
Neon Lights will illuminate the historic Fort Canning Park on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th November with a rich and vibrant music and arts programme encompassing international and local music, dance, theatre, comedy, art & design installations, spoken word and children’s workshops.
Not only will Neon Lights include highlights such as enigmatic American singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata, Ambient-folk rock trio Daughter from England, and multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Ireland’s Damien Rice, the stellar musical line-up will be paired with a neon rainbow of artistic treats. Families with kids will be entertained by the interactive sideshow, circus, comedy and cabaret performances at Club Minky, followed by children’s wearable art and movement workshops by MySuperFuture at Cloud Factory. Come sunset, the tent transforms into The Sound Bar @ Cloud Factory – a series of three distinct performance collaborations per night curated by award-winning Noor Effendy Ibrahim. For fans of the spoken and written word, Lit Up @ Neon will be a literary feast with performances, readings, panel discussions and interviews.
“We’re delighted to have put together such a diverse and eclectic bill in our first year. The whole Neon Lights team is working hard day and night to ensure that the quality of the entire event – from the comedians and visual artists to the chill-out areas and quality food and drink options – is delivered to create the best festival experience. What looks like a good event on paper will be even better on the weekend itself – we guarantee it!” Declan Forde, Managing Director, Neon Lights.
Brimming with a multitude of premium activities, sights and sounds, Neon Lights offers an enriching experience for all festival-goers – the novice and seasoned alike.
