Neon Lights  

Neon Lights, a new major music & art destination festival, will blaze a trail across the region's festival circuit come this November. The first of its kind in Singapore, and taking its cues from the world's greatest music festivals, Neon Lights will illuminate the historic Fort Canning Park on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th November 2015 with a rich and vibrant music and arts programme encompassing international and local music, dance, theatre, comedy, art & design installations, spoken word and children's workshops.
Built on an uncompromising philosophy of collaboration and community, the inaugural annual festival will run from 1pm till late each day, and will incorporate every nook and cranny of Fort Canning's three main outdoor event spaces – Fort Green, Fort Gate and OMSQ. Neon Lights promises a premium multi-disciplinary, multi-sensory experience for everyone, regardless of age or interest, set across six stages – Neon Lights Stage, Neon Gardens Stage, Club Minky, Cloud Factory, Lit Up @ Neon Lights and Easy Street.
The first 16 acts of a superbly eclectic music line-up are released today. Handpicked from over 10 countries across 5 continents; Neon Lights' headliners are the legendary hit-makers USA's CHIC feat Nile Rodgers – one of the most influential producers and prolific musicians in the history of popular music - and multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Ireland's Damien Rice who will play his first Singapore show in nearly a decade.
Brilliant cult mavericks USA's Mercury Rev make their long-awaited return to Singapore right off the release of their latest album and upbeat party acts Flight Facilities from Sydney and New Yorkers Ratatat will play their first-ever shows here.
Other acts making their first trips to Singapore include legendary UK shoegaze trailblazers Ride, the hypnotic Songhoy Blues from Mali, Mancunian world-fusion DJ Mr Scruff and the Asia premiere of Kiasmos – the groundbreaking new audiovisual electronic project from Iceland composer and pianist Olafur Arnalds; who needs no introduction to Singapore audiences – his last trip here in 2013 saw him sell out two nights at the Esplanade Theatre. Kiasmos' show will be preceded by Swedish techno demi-god Axel Willner aka The Field.
The Neon Lights and Neon Gardens stages will showcase a stellar music line-up spanning genres and decades, blending international stars with local heroes, including sensory rockers Hanging Up The Moon. Also on the Neon Lights bill so far are cool punk-meets-bossa-lounge act Nouvelle Vague from Paris, gifted Japanese multi-intstrumentalist Shugo Tokumaru, introspective indie folksters USA's Sun Kil Moon and Singapore's Bennett Bay, and the new queen of dream pop USA's Julia Holter. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks.
Families with kids will be entertained by the interactive sideshow, circus, comedy and cabaret performances at Club Minky, followed by children's wearable art and movement workshops by MySuperFuture at Cloud Factory. For fans of the spoken and written word, Lit Up @ Neon will be a literary treat with performances, readings, panel discussions and interviews.
The holistic festival will feature three distinct performances each night at Cloud Factory by some of Singapore's most innovative sound, video and performance artists, all curated by Noor Effendy Ibrahim, former artistic director of The Substation and Teater Ekamatra. Also, attendees will get to participate in a live street art and culture celebration on Easy Street curated by Recognize Studios and Sideshow, alongside the breakbeats of hip-hop artists and scratch DJs.
“All our favourite outdoor music festivals from around the world have great arts, great food and a real sense of family as integral to their offering. While Neon Lights is first and foremost a music- lovers festival, it's also for people who are looking for something more – performance, workshops, installations, comedy, delicious food and other surprises, all combining to make one of the most nourishing, uplifting weekends of the year. That's the aspiration.” Jennifer Jennings, Producer & Arts Programme Director.
Neon Lights is organised by a team of international award-winning festival experts, including co- founders of Electric Picnic (IRE), Clockenflap (HK) and Harvest Festival (AUS), in collaboration with the experienced and dynamic Singapore team.

Bliss-Out 2015  

Bliss-Out 2015 set to thrill Singapore with first-of-its-kind combination of yoga and music in one magical night
BE prepared for a truly memorable out-of-this-world experience this festive season, as Singapore's largest Yoga and Music Festival, Bliss-Out 2015, looks set to wow the Lion City with its first-of-a-kind combination in one spectacular evening. The unique event will be held on 12 December 2015 at The Meadow, Gardens by the Bay from 5:00pm – 10:30pm.
Bliss-Out brings together the best of two worlds, as music and yoga combine to feed your body, spirit, and musical soul. The event will begin with yoga practices led by renowned local teachers, Lynn Yeo & Sumei Shum, and Los Angeles based internationally celebrated teacher Sianna Sherman, featured by Yoga Journal as one of the 21 top talented young teachers. These sessions will cater to practitioners of all levels. The evening will then thrill fans of indie music, with Kiwi electronic band, The Naked and Famous, enthrall fans with songs from their latest album - In Rolling Waves. The Auckland-based band will be performing some of their hottest singles, including Young Blood, Punching In A Dream, and Hearts Like Ours, providing a combination of darkly nuanced, intricately rocking electro beats for the crowd.
Joining them on stage will be homegrown singer-songwriter Inch Chua as she looks set to rock the stage with her harmonious blend of indie-rock melodies. The 26-year-old has gained attention from music critics ever since she released her debut solo in 2009 – The Bedroom, which paved way for her to be invited to the SXSW Music Festival in 2010, the first Singapore singer-song writer to have done so.
Mr Adrian Mok, Managing Director of HiVelocity Events, the owner and organiser of Bliss-Out 2015, said: “The combination of yoga and music serves as a great way for yoga enthusiasts and music lovers to come together and enjoy a night of fun-filled programmes which we've lined up for them. We want to reach out to Singaporeans who wish to experience both aspects all in one night.”
Music fans and yoga lovers can opt for the “Yoga & Concert” package, which will entitle them to both yoga sessions. Lynn & Sumei will teach an all levels (including beginners) class, which will feature an uplifting and challenging practice with a potpourri of yoga poses. Sianna will teach a more intermediate level session, ‘Fire & Nectar – Tantra Vinyasa', with a dynamic flow of poses, more suitable for regular yoga practitioners. Both sessions will be accompanied by music specially curated by local musician and DJ Amanda Ling.

Lenka live December 2015  

Lenka live in Singapapore 2015
Welcome to Lenkaland.
Lenka has spent much of her time on this earth making music to soothe her own heart and hopefully yours. Her early career as an actress spiked everything with a sense of drama. Her education in fine art peppered all with visual expression. Her love of nature began with a blissful early childhood in the Australian bush. Career highs saw her tour the world extensively and perform on live TV around the globe. Her recent entry into motherhood shines a new light on everything. And it all gets mixed up together to form the songs you hear here.
Lenka's 4th studio album, ‘The Bright Side' was released in June 2015.
Lenka's songs have been featured in many global film and TV placements such as Moneyball, Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy, Old Navy and Coke, to name a few. Her work on Decoder Ring's Somersault soundtrack won the AFI for best song from a film. And Billy Crystal once sang an excerpt of The Show at the Oscars, much to her delight.

The group, who are well known in Australia for their infectious brand of indie rock, will be making their first appearance in Asia.

Four Must-go Local Scenes  
Have you ever wondered where to go when in search of good "clubbing music"? If yes, you are on the right page then. Singapore offers numerous clubs throughout the region. Each club offers a careful selection of songs which define their personal style and sets the ambience for the night.
Phuture and Zouk One of the most famous clubs in Singapore, party-goers from all age groups crowd the dance floors every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Phuture offers Mambo-Jambo night on Wednesdays. Playing songs dating back to early 60's that would remind one of their younger days, the Mambo dance is famous. One will have to diligently apply himself or herself to the Mambo steps to fit into the dance floor on this night. Zouk is more laid back and contemporary; it plays R&B songs and the latest pop songs - which the younger generations love. It is no surprised then that these two clubs are for the younger crowd.
Kyo Tucked away in skyscraper-lit downtown, in the basement of a tower in the bustling, dazzling business district of metropolis singapore is kyo. a space where elemental music meets visionary art. the art of escapism. Mixed crowd of locals and expats makes it good for socalising, drinks flowing and dancing to deep techno beats.
St.James Powerhouse Station This is the largest all-in-one clubbing destination in Singapore. Set in an old power station built in 1927, there are ten different and interconnected venues which cater to specific music genres. These music genres range from jazz, Mandopop, Afro Latin, lounge, karaoke hits, pop, rock, R&B to soul. There is even an outdoor Sports Bar where sports enthusiasts can catch their favorite sports live in action. With multiple clubs and bar themes, this powerhouse station is indeed one of the must-go for the definitive music scene in Singapore.
