The bands are definitely no strangers to Singapore, having performed in the country in 2012 and 2014 respectively.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have acts with the global profile and prestige of Foals and Sigur Rós headlining Neon Lights 2016. Both acts have established fan bases in Singapore and the region and will be playing full length evening time sets in the magnificent setting of Fort Canning Park. The rest of our line-up will be announced in July,” said Declan Forde, Neon Lights festival director.

Neon Lights’ concert-goers should be honoured and thrilled to know that this will be Sigur Rós’ only show in South East Asia and Foals only appearance in Singapore this year.

Both of the bands will be playing full sets at the upcoming Neon Lights festival 2016.

Last year, over 10,000 people attended the festival which featured big name artistes like Damien Rice, Rachael Yamagata, Rüfüs, Mogwai, Daughter, CHIC and more taking centre stage.

“Last year’s response to Neon Lights was electrifying. To see audiences of all manner of ages, interests, professions and cultures really getting in to the spirit of the festival was just magic. We are working hard with our amazing team and artistic collaborators to once again bring great music and art to the heart of the city, and what a great start with headliners Foals and Sigur Rós!” added Jennifer Jennings, arts director of Neon Lights.
