Laneway Festival Singapore is probably the biggest contemporary music festival in Singapore, bar none and it is exciting to see the organisers living up to their promise that more Asian and local acts would be added to the lineup each year.
At a cosy press event yesterday, the festival previewed three of these acts viz. Obedient Wives Club, THELIONCITYBOY and Tim De Cotta.
It was a casual stripped-down affair that demonstrated how far the festival has come since its debut in 2011 as the local acts provided a little sneak peek at what to expect on 27th January 2018 at the Meadow, Gardens by the Bay.
Other Asian acts announced include – AlexTBH (Malaysia), Amateur Takes Control (Singapore), MAS1A (Singapore), Heals (Indonesia) & The Ransom Collective (Philippines).
Which makes the FIVE Singaporean participants the most local acts ever for an international music festival ever! A cause to celebrate!!
Tickets available here.
