With a cup of beer in one hand and the other up in the air, the 3000-strong crowd swayed energetically to the live performances.
We saw regional acts brb., Balming Tigers and RamenGvrl play their sets, warming up the crowd for the headlining act Lee Hi.
She last came to Singapore in January for a show organised by her label, AOMG. But fans are still very much looking forward to seeing her play live again at the festival.
Here are three highlights from Tiger’s Twist to the Night festival.
1. An intimate stage setting with dazzling exhibits
The event stage was unlike typical concert set-ups. Event organisers opted for a slightly smaller stage space with just a DJ at the rear.
And this offered a more intimate setting where Lee Hi was able to interact with and engage the crowd more frequently.
Away from the stage, the festival grounds also housed neon light fixtures, similar to those you’d find at the back alleys of Asian cities. Eye-catching and perfect for a quick Instagram shot.
2. A short but jam packed setlist
Lee Hi appeared in denim jeans and a sleeveless white blouse, fit for Singapore’s sweltering hit.
Some of these tracks were originally performed together with other artists, most of whom are rappers. That night, Lee Hi also covered the rap portions by herself for Savior (2021) and No One (2019).
As she finished her last track at midnight, fans yearned for an encore segment. And she was game.
She later served up a live rendition of her emotive ballad Breathe (2016).
3. Bottoms up: Lee Hi trying the new lager
Halfway into the set, the 26 year-old singer asked show organisers if they could give a can of beer. She said she “needed some alcohol in her body” before moving on.
A timely promotion indeed.
She took a swig of the new Tiger Soju Infused Lager before continuing with her performance.
