We're rolling on to greater heights
Laneway Festival Singapore is excited to announce the instalment of a fourth stage at this year’s event. Set up with local collective Syndicate, the stage brings together a new genre of local and international electronic DJs and visual artists, including Australia's JPS, Singapore's Mean, and visual artist Brandon Tay accompanying duo Kiat & Kane on stage.
Of the new stage, Danny Rogers, co-founder of the festival, notes:
“Around October last year, following a walk-through of the site with our trusted local team, we agreed we should look at building a brand new stage in Singapore. We didn't want it to be a token. We wanted it to be something for Singapore by Singaporeans. After a long brainstorm, we decided to approach the team at Syndicate, who would no doubt deliver something magical. So, like Ghostly International in Detroit, Future Classic in Australia and our friends from London, Eat Your Own Ears and Young Turks, we invited them to collaborate with us in building a brand new stage experience that runs parallel to the Cloud Stage. This means that the area is going to have 11 hours of non-stop tunes, and it’s going to be a wild street party like the early Laneway Festivals. It's the first time we are doing anything like this in Singapore, and we believe it will spawn a new period of us taking on unique collaborations.”
From the addition of a new stage and larger audiences (from 6,000 in the inaugural 2011 edition, to more than 13,000 last year), to a wider repertoire of music and acts, the festival and its team have worked hard to be bigger and better each year.
With less than two weeks to the festival, we are excited to return to the fields of Gardens By The Bay with the most exciting new talents from across the globe, and the finest range of activities, and food and beverages.
