Check out these hot shots captured from the Laneway Festival Singapore 2018.

1) Calm before the storm

Some festival-goers came early to relax on the lawn and check out the booths, including the unique Uber Eats Food Village, which offered for the first time in Asia, a food delivery option at a music festival. Attendees could order snacks – tacos, satay, ice-cream – with the help of dedicated pick-up points located across festival grounds, which meant less queuing and more enjoying.

2) ASICS Tiger provides shelter laneway-festival-2018-asics-tiger-booth

This year, ASICS Tiger provided shelter to festival-goers who needed respite from the unforgiving heat. Housed within the booth: seats, magazines and charging stations. In addition, participants could stand a chance to win ASICS Tiger shoes if they took pictures against the photo wall within the booth. Spotted at the booth were dance crew Scrachmarcs and artiste Tabitha Nauser.

3) Acts-citement
