(Future Music Festival, Australia, many many years ago)
I’ve been for a few music festivals in Australia and beyond, and I just don’t understand why there isn’t one every month in Singapore? Our sunny grass patches are galore – what is the Padang for? OK, we don’t have a lot of space, but our warm less-rainy seasons are reason enough for other countries to adore.
Yes… I wish we would have more. YES… I think more Singaporeans should stop being ‘sian’ and get their butt outdoors.
LANEWAY FESTIVAL 2013 – PRESENTED BY FIJI WATER
LOCATION: MEADOWS, GARDENS BY THE BAY
I might not be a pretty sight by then, but at least the view will be!
LINEUP: GOTYE, Bat For Lashes, Japandroids, Kimbra, Kings of Convenience, and Nicolas Jaar
Have you heard of these music acts before? Which one is your fave?
To be honest, I think the price of the event is a bit steep but this will probably be the sweetest event in the indie scene, and the icing on the cake (event) is GOTYE!
Kings of Convenience – When I listen to this song, I imagine myself in a field of dandelions by myself. Aiya, the guy in the music video stole my idea.
Bat For Lashes
If you could do with a good dose of butt-kicking weekend tunes, leap on down to Laneway Festival this year. FIJI Water will have 4 stations well-stocked with their famous artesian water to quench your musical thirsts.
