Neon Lights Festival has announced its Sunday headliner to be none other than Grammy nominee and multi-platinum superstar Halsey, alongside Norwegian electro-pop artist AURORA.
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 23rd and 24th November 2019.
Continuing on a roll this year, that has seen her release three massive record-breaking singles ahead of the release of her third studio album, Halsey will be debuting a newly-conceived spectacular audio-visual show with a full live band. Just recently, Halsey was nominated for six MTV Video Music Awards, including Artist of the Year.
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. She has been 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 and Closer (feat. The Chainsmokers).
Halsey’s latest single, Nightmare, 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 artiste on Sunday, 24th November.
Playing on the same day as Halsey on Sunday is electro-pop artist AURORA who previously played Singapore at Laneway Festival in 2017.
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 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 greenery that inspires much of her music.
Many more music and arts acts are to be announced for the Neon Lights bill in the coming weeks and months.
