The festival like no other, that includes yoga sessions, a run, a feast and music acts will return to Sentosa this year on 30 and 31st May with more than ever, and with indie pop headliner – Two Door Cinema Club!
The band from Northern Ireland are set to headline AIA Glow Festival this year, and we can’t wait!
Formed in 2008 by three schoolmates from Bangor Grammar School in County Down, the trio consisting of singer Alex Trimble, guitarist Sam Halliday and bassist Kevin Baird formed the band intending to add a pristine melodic frisson to the helium rock sounds of Foals and The Maccabees.
Signing to French indie label Kitsune, they built a DIY phenomenon by dint of relentless touring and a close connection to their online fanbase, nicknamed “The Basement People”.
Within two years, they were playing to festival tents rammed with 30,000 rabid Cinephiles with their debut album ‘Tourist History’ going platinum on the back of cult singles such as ‘Something Good Can Work’ and ‘What You Know’.
In 2011, their second album ‘Beacon’ – recorded with Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, Bloc Party) in his LA studio – hits Number Two in the UK and the band headlines Alexandra Palace and the O2 – the ultimate modern-age success story!
Since then, Two Door Cinema Club has had numerous sell out tours all around the world and are favourite headline acts across global music festivals.
The indie band were last in Singapore in 2017 and 2013, and then earlier in 2011 for Esplanade’s Mosaic Music Festival. They will return to Singapore for AIA Glow Festival and play on Saturday, 30th May 2020.
This year’s AIA Glow Festival yoga highlights include Lululemon’s global ambassadors like Baron Baptiste and Jonah Kest.
For over 20 years, Baron Baptiste has been an influential teacher, leader, and catalyst for transformation. On the mat, he teaches Baptiste Yoga™, a style of yoga which was founded in the 1940s by his father, Walt Baptiste. Baron is a global yoga ambassador for lululemon and is committed to developing leaders in the world through the power of practice. He co-founded Africa Yoga Project, which educates, empowers, elevates and expands employability with youth in Africa using the transformational practice of yoga.
Jonah Kest has been a student of yoga since day one. Surrounded by his father and uncle, who were western vinyasa trailblazers, he spent his early years observing and learning from the best. Over the years, his upbringing has translated into a committed asana practice, daily meditation, and consistent cultivation of gratitude. His grace, compassion, and inspiring intensity are evident in everything he does – both off and on the mat.
