The 29-year-old singer will be joining confirmed performers Sigur Ros, Foals, Crystal Castles and Jose Gonzalez to perform at the festival on Sunday, 27 November 2016.
This will be the only chance in the rest of 2016 for Yuna’s regional fans from across Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand to catch the Los Angeles-based pop star perform on stage.
“Yuna is the perfect addition to a festival that celebrates and showcases international acts on the same stage as homegrown Asian ones,” said Neon Lights’ festival director Declan Forde in a statement.
“She’s a fascinating mix of dual identities and themes — born in Malaysia, based in Los Angeles; a singer-songwriter of light contemporary pop with some heavy R&B undertones. It’s all going to make for a very interesting set when she performs and we’re really excited to see what she brings.”
Featuring more than 50 music and art performances over two days on 26 and 27 November 2016, Neon Lights will also present George Clinton, Shura, Blood Orange, The Tallest Man on Earth, The Sugarhill Gang as well as homegrown names including Gentle Bones, Linying and Cashew Chemists.
