Neon Lights – The latest Music Festival to light up the local scene

neon lights
Come this November, the first of its kind in Singapore, Neon Lights will illuminate the historic Fort Canning Park on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th November showcasing international and local music, dance, theatre, comedy, art & design installations, spoken word and children’s workshops.

The inaugural annual festival will run from 1pm till late each day, and will utilise every space possible in Fort Canning’s three main outdoor event spaces – Fort Green, Fort Gate and OMSQ.  Neon Lights promises a multi-sensory experience for everyone, regardless of age or interest.

Handpicked from over 10 countries across 5 continents; Neon Lights’ headliners are hit-makers USA’s CHIC feat Nile Rodgers – and multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Ireland’s Damien Rice who will play his first Singapore show in nearly a decade. I honestly hope he would sing The Blower’s Daughter.

Other acts making their first trips to Singapore include Mancunian world-fusion DJ Mr Scruff and the Asia premiere of Kiasmos. Kiasmos’ show will be preceded by Swedish techno demi-god Axel Willner aka The Field.

More acts will be announced in the coming weeks. So do keep a lookout!

Families with kids will be entertained by the interactive sideshow, circus, comedy and cabaret performances at Club Minky.

“All our favourite outdoor music festivals from around the world have great arts, great food and a real sense of family as integral to their offering. While Neon Lights is first and foremost a music-lovers festival, it’s also for people who are looking for something more – performance, workshops, installations, comedy, delicious food and other surprises, all combining to make one of the most nourishing, uplifting weekends of the year. That’s the aspiration.” Jennifer Jennings, Producer & Arts Programme Director.
