Indie music festival extraordinaire Neon Lights 2016 has finally released the timings for its fantastic line-up, and it’s plenty to shout about.

Held on the coming Saturday and Sunday, the festival will see the likes of Foals, Sigur Ros, Crystal Castles, Gentle Bones, and Gold Panda gracing the fields of Fort Canning for its sophomore edition this weekend, 26 & 27 November.

However, Neon Lights is not all about just the music. The organizers have made sure to include plenty of art activities, performances and even poetry, echoing regional festivals like Malaysia’s Urbanscapes and Thailand’s Wonderfruit festival.

With the likes of food, sculpture exhibits, brass bands, and even comedy shows, revelers can be sure to be entertained even in-between waiting for sets.

Here’s a complete lowdown on the line-up of the festival as told in emojis. You can also read our report card on last year’s Neon Lights over here!
