The premier music and arts festival also presents Neon Nooks to illuminate the nooks and crannies of the festival. This year’s Neon Nooks features local and international artists and acts such as South African artist Francois Knoetze coming to Singapore for the first ever time with his renowned Cape Mongo series, Leeroy New’s Aliens of Manila x Singapore (featuring Jereh Leung and Sonia Kwek), and roving bands Bloco Singapura and Mariachi Viva Mexico. The ever-popular Silent Disco Asia also returns for festival-goers to bust a move and revel in to both nights of the festival with three channels of music and neon-lit headsets. And the whole festival site will feature the spectacular aesthetics enhancements of Neon Lights’ décor guru Soph O.
Programmed by arts and culture consultancy Hyphen, Neon Nooks explores the cycle and treatment of discarded objects – from otherworldly trash creatures to wearable sculptures made from recycled colanders and plastic tubes, festival-goers are invited to reflect upon our hyper-consumerist culture through the representation of waste, alienation, as well as the necessity of resourcefulness within an urban context.
All this will take place amidst the perfect backdrop of Soph O’s eclectic, extraordinary and transcendental décor creations, which make the festival ever so inviting. Since its inception, 80% of Neon Lights Festival’s décor has been made out of repurposed and upcycled materials.
