If California has Coachella, Singapore has Neon Lights. Since 2015, Neon Lights has been bringing the crème de la crème of the music world to Singapore, performing live over the course of two days for their fans.
There’s just a little over a month before the music and arts festival
returns, this time bringing with it a whole slew of international and local acts.
Neon Lights 2019 is set to be held at the following time and place:
Date: 23 and 24 November 2019 (Saturday & Sunday)
Venue: Fort Canning Park, Singapore
Ticket prices range from SGD60 to SGD245 (exclusive of SGD4 fee). Tickets for a group of six are also available from SGD640. Get more details on the ticketing at https://www.neonlights.sg/
| Get ready for two days of fun at Neon Lights 2019!
Headlining the first day of the festival, on 23 November, is Grammy-Award winner Mumford & Sons, who will be performing for the first time in Singapore (and Southeast Asia, for that matter).
Also performing in Singapore for the first time is multi-instrumentalist Mura Masa, who is described as a ‘chameleonic curator of global sounds’.
British electronic-soul act HONNE, meanwhile, is back by popular demand, following his two sell-out shows earlier this year.
Australian psych-rock band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Mexican-American indie pop troubadour Cuco, the one-of-a-kind multicultural mariachi band ensemble Mariachi Viva Mexico, growing household name Shak & The Baits, and Filipino-Irish folk-pop singer-songwriter AndreaH will all be taking the stage on Saturday, too.

The next day, 24 November, Grammy nominee and multi-platinum superstar Halsey is taking the main stage, debuting a newly-conceived spectacular audiovisual show with a full live band.
Electro-pop artist Aurora, who previously played Singapore at 2017’s Laneway Festival, will be performing on the same day.
American singer-songwriter Gus Dapperton and electronic-indie duo Joan are set to perform in Singapore for the first time via Neon Lights, while Nick Murphy, previously known as Chet Faker, is making his highly-anticipated return after three years.
Also playing on the same day are Sydney twins Cosmo’s Midnight, Canadian instrumental quartet BadBadNotGood, American DJ duo Fleetmac Wood and local band MMLD.
Of course, Neon Lights 2019 is not just all about music. Festivalgoers can expect the return of Silent Disco, Neon Nooks and gourmet food and drinks.
