Mumford & Sons, Honne to headline this year's Neon Lights music festival
The two-day music and arts event is set to take place on Nov 23 and 24 at Fort Canning Park.
Mumford & Sons and Honne have been announced as the headliners for Day 1 of Neon Lights 2019. The two-day outdoor music and arts festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday (Nov 23 and 24) at Fort Canning Park.
This will be the first time the Grammy Award-winning Mumford & Sons will be playing in Singapore and Southeast Asia. The four-man British band has headlined festivals around the world including Coachella and Glastonbury.
British electronic music duo Honne have performed here four times before, with each show selling out.
Neon Lights 2019 will start at 1pm and go on till late each day. A limited number of early bird tickets for Nov 23 will go on sale on Friday (Jul 19) at 9am at www.neonlights.sg and at Sistic at S$108. Once these early bird tickets sell out, Tier 2 tickets will go on sale at S$128.
The lineup for Day 2 of the festival will be announced in late Jul during which Sunday and two-day tickets will go on sale. Those who already have tickets for the first day will have the option to upgrade to two-day tickets at this time.
Declan Forde, Neon Lights’ Founder and Festival Director said, “Mumford & Sons have over the last decade established themselves as one of the biggest and most loved bands in the world. It’s a huge honour for Neon Lights to be hosting them for their first ever show in Southeast Asia – they’ve been top of our target list since we started the festival four years ago. The natural beauty of Fort Canning Park lends a perfect setting for Mumford & Sons’ style and we’re looking forward to announcing the rest of the festival bill in the coming weeks and months.”
The previous editions of Neon Lights have featured acts such as Damien Rice, Sigur Ros, Interpol, Yuna and Cigarettes After Sex.
