This is the recap of my memory about St. Jerome's Laneway Festival 2017 in Singapore and information for festival goers!
Nice mix of international acts such as Glass Animals Indie rock band from Oxford known for its quirky sound, Nick Murphy (Chet Faker) Australian multi-instrumentalist, singer, song writer, and producer, Tourist (William Phillips) Grammy award winner for song of the year for co-written "Stay with me" by Sam Smith producer and song writer, Tycho American ambient electronic band, Whitney indie rock band from Chicago, and more.
Great outdoor venue The event located at the Meadow, Gardens by the bay. It is quite small and cozy compare to other music festivals. The best thing is Garden Stage and Bay stage located next to each other, so you can easily switch stages as you please. Unlike other music festival where there're many stages and your have to spare sometimes to walk from one stage to another and end up didn't get to watch full performance of your favorite acts! I consider that the most disappointing thing that could ever happen to festival goers!
All live acts have great visual accompaniment
Weather sucks! Rain Coat is a Must! It rained continuously from late afternoon until late evening.
Food & Drinks are available inside the venue.
Suggested Laneway Outfit light and flowy pieces with a touch of boho accessories to keep you comfy and chic all day long.
Taxi is the most convenient transportation from city center Take a taxi to Gardens by the bay then walk 7-10 mins to The Meadow. It's very easy as you will see the signs along the way leading you to the venue. Not sure about the direction? You can go to staff at the reception near taxi drop-off and pick-up.
