In this part one I will just talk about my day before Laneway and maybe talking about the outfits what were people wearing. I decided to go to Laneway just 2 weeks before d-day and I was like ‘Okay that’s it, I don’t want to miss out my favorite bands again (which is The 1975 and CHVRCHES). I bought the concert ticket then later on I bought the flight ticket, my first plan was actually to just take a plane on the same day as the festival but then I was thinking that I can be tired as hell and luckily I’m really happy with my choice to stay two nights in Singapore (I left on Friday afternoon). I came alone all the way from my country to Singapore (yes, you read it right I did come alone.) and then I asked on twitter to find people who also going alone to Laneway, guess what? I found like around 3-4 people that I will be meeting up at the venue and one person meet up just near my hostel. On friday, after I went to check in to my hostel (Wink Hostel) I directly went to the H&M store in Orchard to collect my wristband then just walking around Orchard and Chinatown. This is actually my second time staying at hostel and the reason I chose Wink Hostel is mainly because really close to MRT and the rating for this hostel is also good. Then later at midnight I was preparing for the festival here is my check list on what to bring and hopefully it might be useful for you guys who are about to go to the music festival!
Music Festival What To Bring List:
- Picnic Mat
- Rain jacket / Poncho (if the venue is in tropical country then you need it)
- ID Photo/ID card
- CAMERA (#1)
I was strolling around the city with my friend who I met on twitter because she came alone in the morning and she really needs a friend and it was her first time coming to Singapore so I was like her tour guide haha but it was really fun because the last time I went to Raffles place or Merlion was like 9 years ago and I was still a kid which I just remember some part of this place and yes everything has changed because they didn’t have Marina Bay Sands or Gardens by The Bay back then so it was really nice to exploring new place. I like Singapore so much although it’s really expensive in here but I’d like to go back and forth to here maybe for another concert or festival? Hahaha but I have to see if the band performs is my favorite or not.
Chinatown at night at Pagoda St. there are many souvenirs shops and it was really crowded at night.
Got my wristband for the festival yay!
Wink Hostel, it’s a pod-hostel and I was staying in the ladies dorm room. It was really nice if you want to stay at affordable place or if you just staying at singapore for two nights like me. I would really love to stay at this hostel again! Check them out: Wink Hostel
The first three photos were taken at Merlion place/Esplanade and you can see those tall skyline buildings in Singapore. I walked from Raffles Place MRT to Gardens by The Bay and it was not that far maybe just a bit tiring.
‘Supertree Grove’ and the view at night is waaay beautiuful and more picturesque.
Then I finally arrived at the venue around 12pm and I met up with people who also come alone and then surprisingly we were like a group haha so it was really nice, so in the afternoon because it was really freaking hot and thanks to the weather now I get a sunburnt, we decided to just chilling around near the stage, sitting on the grass while eating and enjoying the music. I already wrote in here in the WTF post that I really love to come to music festival because I get to see people really dress up either because they want to ‘dress to impress’ or just casual dress up. So here it is I got some pics what people mostly were wearing at the festival: boho style, grunge style. My outfit is just a simple one, white lace-up top with short pants and sneakers because I know I will stay the whole day so I decided to just go simple. I think the music festival combo is: a top with a kimono outer then short jeans with a gladi shoes or maybe boots.
This was my first time meeting up with internet friends for real and they were all really nice (we were at different age I was the second youngest one in here lol). I was really nice to know them and hopefully we will meet in another festival or maybe Laneway next year? :p
Just chillin and p.s I think this was around 2pm and it was really really HOT like I was sweating a lot.
Festival Combo: top with short jeans and sandals!
Or maybe wearing a tie-dye long skirt with a tube top?
Boots or sneakers? Either of them is still a go-to shoes for music festivals. If your legs don’t want to get tired fast then maybe sneakers is really a good choice.
