Mumford & Sons, Honne, Halsey and Aurora form and complete the epic line-up of headliners at this year’s Neon Lights Festival.
Following the announcement of Mumford & Sons, and Honne earlier this month, Halsey and Aurora have been now been set to headline Sunday.
The renowned performers join Mumford & Sons and Honne on the main stage at Singapore’s premier outdoor music and arts festival, which will take place at Fort Canning Park on Saturday, 23rd and Sunday 24th November.
Since her professional debut in 2014, HALSEY has already been nominated for multiple awards and won at Billboard Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and even set three Guinness World Records in April with Boy with Luv, a collaboration with K-Pop sensation BTS. At just 24-years-old, she has already been recognised for her efforts as an activist for various causes, and is known for her unapologetic lyrics and multi-platinum hits such as Ghost, Closer (feat. The Chainsmokers), Him & I, and Eastside (feat. Benny Blanco and Khalid).
The formidable artist was last in Singapore last year for her Hopeless Fountain Tour held at the Star Theatre on August 8th, which received rave reviews for its staging and sound.
HALSEY kicked off her new album campaign in December last year with the outspoken single Without Me which broke records as the longest-running Billboard 100 top 10 hit by a female artist in this century, and topped the charts in the US, UK, Australia and Malaysia amongst other countries. The song has over 250 million views on Youtube.
She followed up with the powerful anthem, Nightmare, which examines the expectations placed on women in our society and proceeds to shatter them. To date, the new single has been streamed some 205 million times globally in the two months since its release, and led to her first Rolling Stone cover last month. HALSEY is putting up her only performance in Southeast Asia right here on the Neon Lights stage, and fans can expect nothing less than a raw and cathartic set from the boundary-pushing American on Sunday, 24th November.
Playing on the same day as HALSEY on Sunday, 24th November, is electro-pop artist AURORA who previously played Singapore at Laneway Festival in 2017.
One might also remember her as providing the iridescent vocals for the heartwarming John Lewis’ 2015 Christmas advert, where she sang Oasis’ Half The World Away’.
Often compared to her own idol Björk, the prolific singer-songwriter has released two EPs and two studio albums to date. AURORA’s most recent work was produced in two parts – EP Infections of a Different Kind – Step 1 released in 2018, and the follow up studio album A Different Kind of Human – Step 2 released just last month.
Characterized by her alluring crisp voice and enigmatic personality, the Queendom singer will be a most enchanting act to take in live at Fort Canning Park, surrounded by the greenery that inspires much of her music. Well well, this year’s Neon Lights line-up does look smashing, doesn’t it!
And we can’t wait for more!
The writers over at AsiaLive365 are certainly very excited about this year’s Neon Lights! And we can’t wait for November!!
We hope you are too!
