Two Days. Six Stages. Music, Fun & Art.

Neon Lights – Singapore’s new major music & arts destination festival -- blazes a trail across the region’s festival circuit with a rich & vibrant programme from international and local music, dance, theatre and comedy to art & design installations, spoken word and children's workshops. With over 140 performance artists, including 38 music acts, Neon Lights promises a premium multi-disciplinary, multi-sensory experience for everyone, no matter your or interest.

Built on an uncompromising philosophy of collaboration and community, the inaugural annual festival will host six stages – Neon Lights Stage, Neon Gardens Stage, Club Minky, Cloud Factory, Lit Up @ Neon Lights and Easy Street, incorporating every nook and cranny of Fort Canning's main outdoor event spaces.

From Australia's The League of Sideshow Superstars to local drag revue RIOT! by the outrageous Becca D'Bus, and the region's best comics in the Comedy Masala takeover, Club Minky is a cabaret, circus sideshow and comedy wonderland for the discerning fan of alternative entertainment and also a vinyl-lovers haven, with mind-blowing DJ sets throughout the day.

For fans of the spoken and written word, Lit Up @ Neon Lights will be a literary treat with performances, readings, panel discussions and interviews by 40 well-known authors, poets and performers. The two-day festival-within-a-festival culminates in the National Poetry Slam Championship.

At Cloud Factory, the day belongs to children and their families with arts and movement workshops designed specifically for the budding festival goer. Come sunset, the tent transforms into The Sound Bar @ Cloud Factory – a series of three distinct performances per night by some of Singapore's most innovative sound, video and performance artists.

Easy Street is a celebration of all things street. Located in the secret alleyways of the festival, different elements of street culture come to life as self-professed visual anarchists hit the walls with live graffiti and murals; urban dance crew lock, pop and drop it like it’s hot through performances and in battle; local rap heroes heat up the stage alongside scratch DJs.

Neon Lights is organised by a team of international award-winning festival experts, including co- founders of Electric Picnic (IRE), Clockenflap (HK) and Harvest Festival (AUS), in collaboration with the experienced and dynamic Singapore team.
