Just about 2 weeks ago, everyone had their tongues wagging thanks to the folks from LanewayFestSg (Chugg Entertainment & Friends) when the final, official line-up for Singapore’s Laneway Festival 2013 was released. Simply put it; minds were blown and people all over Asia, not just in Singapore, went crazy. And as the dust starts to settle on that breaking news of what we think is the biggest musical act of the coming year thus far, the only thing we can do now is to look up and forward to that fateful 26th of January next year.
There’s only so many ways we can soothe our craving for Laneway but here on Popspoken, we decided to bring something back for all of you. As part of our Laneway coverage, we are reviving The Weekend Series playlists and bring to you a little something to help with your hype and anxious wait for Laneway Festival Singapore! For the coming 11 or so Fridays, we are honored to present to you; “A Laneway Adventure“. Apt for those weekday blues and for fueling up your weekends, the wait for Laneway will no longer be a bore with this ‘adventure’ that will bring to you all sorts of music from those that will be gracing Laneway Singapore grounds next year.
Here is Part 01; The Introduction.
They say that first impressions count and I’m pretty sure everyone can agree that they always remember the first time. So for the first episode of the 11-part series, we bring to you the best of the best. It may possibly be the first time you’re hearing some of these tracks but we promise you nothing but the best. Featuring the best track of each artist touching ground at Laneway here next year, this is only the start and a blazing one at that we hope. One small step for Popspoken, one giant leap for Laneway in Singapore!
