    Neon Lights Festival 2019: Day 2 highlights

    SINGAPORE – Technical issues seem to arise at the festival; first there were difficulties with the new scanning system at the entrance, that saw crowd-goers stranded for about two hours on Day 1 (23 November). Today, Day 2, was no less. While Badbadnotgood played without hiccups, it was during Norwegian singer Aurora’s set that power tripped, cutting her song “Running With The Wolves” midway. Aurora then, resumed without a hitch.However, Nick Murphy was not so lucky. The Australian singer-songwriter (and the crowd) waited for an additional ten minutes to ensure soundcheck was in place, and he finally took to the stage to sing his solo rendition of “Talk Is Cheap”, “Dangerous” and “Gold.” Murphy then walked off stage, and never resumed his set. Fans booed, and many left the festival soon after.Peek photos of the crowd and the acts that performed on Day 2.READ MORE:Neon Lights Festival 2019: Day 1 highlightsINTERVIEW: South Korean singer-songwriter 10cm is lining up newly written songs for a full albumChallenges to Section 377A: Key points from this week's hearingsSingapore's 'A Land Imagined' wins Best Original Screenplay at Golden Horse Awards

    Beauty headliners: The must-pack beauty products for festival season

    Festivals really are the time to throw your beauty rulebook out the window.They’re the one place where a simple slick of mascara and a fresh blow-dry looks more out of place than donning glitter boobs and unwashed, grass-scattered hair. And that’s saying something.With the nation’s growing obsession with festivals, our favourite brands are by creating lines of products dedicated to the whimsical dreaminess of the week-long mudfests.If you’re still confused, think glitter in every shade of the rainbow, stamp-on stars and the boldest eyeshadow colours and stick-on jewels.Of course, there’s some sensible souls who are kindly catering to the practical stuff too: think fold-up mirrors courtesy of Magic Mirror, purse-friendly dry shampoos from Colab and mist spray SPF for long days in the sun via Clinique.Brands are also wising up about the environment, like The Gypsy Shrine who have launched biodegradable glitter in response to findings on its potential ecological hazard, and Epic Wipes who boast totally sustainable wet wipes.Browse our best pics of festival beauty for 2018…Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
