Come August, IGNITE! will be back once again to set the crowd on fire at Republic Polytechnic (RP). Being in the seventh year, this annual festival has definitely grown into a national music event. With six successful runs under their name, this year will definitely be no exception. Over the two day music extravaganza, concert-goers can look forward to performances by a tantalizing lineup of cutting-edge local artists.
Day one, will feature a star studded line-up of local favourites Charlie Lim, The Sam Willows and ShiGGa Shay. The crowd can also expect to see familiar faces like Aspectrum, ORANGECOVE and 53A, who are back to shake up IGNITE! once again. In addition, having created some of the best earworm anthems of 2014 and having had a dizzyingly successful year, Gentle Bones, Stopgap and wyd:syd, who will be having their virgin performances on this year’s IGNITE! stage are definitely acts to look out for!
Day two, will only get more exciting with veterans of the local music scene, Plainsunset and Caracal rocking out on stage. Be prepared to be mesmerized by the melodious rhythm of Pleasantry and rock to the electrifying songs from Bear Culture. Next up, ANECHOIS who has been shaking up the music industry locally and internationally will keep us dancing the night away with their tunes. IGNITE! goers can also look out for regulars from past years, Republic Polytechnic’s very own bands from Interest Groups (IG) Jammerz Arena and Replug. Get ready also to be blown away by the winners of IGNITE! Band Auditions who will be making their debut performance to the public on this year’s stage.
