Neon Lights is back for its sophomore year, with indie rock outfit Foals and post-rock band Sigur Rós headlining the event. Festival enthusiasts and alternative music lovers, you won’t want to miss this!

This outdoor music and arts festival will be taking place in November, and the festival organisers have yet to drop the full music and arts lineup, but tickets are already starting to sell out fast. What makes this festival such a hit? We think it’s in no small part due to their successful run last year, with their diverse and eclectic lineup, as well as a wide range of fringe events.

#Throwback to a year ago, Neon Lights 2015 saw local and international acts taking the stage, from English indie band, Daughter; to Icelandic techno duo, Kiasmos; to 70’s American band, Chic; to homegrown band, Hanging Up the Moon; and many more. For a music festival, Neon Lights seems to cater to a broader spectrum of audiences than most other similar events, with performances showcasing a range of different music genres.

And with last year’s exciting performance lineup embellished with additional highlights like visual arts and live comedy, we’re excited about what else Neon Lights 2016 could have in store for us!

In the meantime, here are some highlights from last year’s music stages:
