114. MUD, MUSIC & MAYHEM – LANEWAY 2011
Featuring up and coming acts like BBC’s Sound of 2011, Warpaint as well as established acts like Ladyhawke, Holy EFF, The Foals, Chk Chk Chk and Temper Trap, the festival also quickly morphed into a mini Woodstock when the grassy slopes of Fort Canning literally transformed into a huge mudslide as monsoon rains came down in sheets.
The Singapore and regional audience however, didn’t let that douse their spirits. Armed with umbrellas, plastic bags, disposable ponchos, lots of drinks and cameras, the crowd cheered on as each band came on to play their sets.
Organisers and the bands were wowed with the crowds’ passion and enthusiasm despite the pouring rain. Well, we hope that earns us enough brownie points for them to consider bringing the festival back to our shores in 2012.
Meanwhile, here’s some video samples of some of the acts that performed.
