Click on to find out what you missed at the two-day music festival.

Last weekend, Youth.SG was treated to platter of musical performances at IGNITE! Music Festival.

Organised by students from Republic Polytechnic (RP), the music festival featured a strong line-up of local talents that wowed us with their on point covers and original compositions.

Scroll down for the highlights from the two-day music festival!

The first night started with a slow set from the first runner-up of RP's IGNITE! Band Audition, Efficient Public Transport. The energy only built up when Jammerz Arena, RP's own Interest Group band, took over with a number of rock songs for the crowd.

Our own local version of Scottish synthpopo band CHVRCHES, Disco Hue had the crowd grooving to the song 'I'll be Waiting'. The four-man band, which will be headed to Japan after their IGNITE! performance, impressed the crowd with their electro-pop tunes. Special mention to lead singer Sherlyn Leo, who amazed us with her strong vocals.

Indie singer-songwriter Linying took over the stage performing with an amazing angelic voice singing her two of her singles, 'Alphine' and 'Sicky Leaves'. Her soothing music filled the festival grounds, leaving the attendees sitting comfortably on the grass field.

Another hot favourite, indie band StopGap made the crowd go wild with their original hits.

THELIONCITYBOY came soon after, with special guest Benjamin Kheng from The Sam Willows, to perform the new hit single, 'YAYA'. The fans of the both singers screamed their lungs out as they sung.

Ending the festivities for the first night of IGNITE! was all-boys band, Take Two. The four-piece band owned the stage as they sang songs from their latest EP, while lead singer Paddy captivated the fans' hearts.

Interestingly, band member David Siow made a comeback from his honeymoon to perform with them at IGNITE! too.

The second night of IGNITE! kick-started with REPLUG playing on homeground Republic Polytechnic. The evening crowd grew larger when pop/rock band The Summer State appeared on stage.

They sang some of their popular songs such as 'Hope, From the Gallows' and 'Enough', that had the audience singing their hearts out. They also announced a new EP release, giving the audience a special preview of their new pieces.


THE CROWD AT THE SUMMER STATE HAD THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES.

Music aside, the night was filled with mini Coachella vibes, as bands Tell Lie Vision and Young played next to the bustling Festival Village. Vendors such as Dawn and Dusk and other food stalls spiced up the night, filing our tummies as we prepared to party with the upcoming exciting acts.


YOUNG WOWED THE CROWD WITH THEIR NEW SONG, 'FULL CIRCLE'.

One of the highlights of the night was Iman's League, who attracted a predominantly Malay crowd during their set. No other performance was as lit as Iman's League. They had an interesting fusion of old and new tracks such as 'Destiny' and 'Perfect Dad'.

Iman's League wrapped up their performance with 'Lisa', with a cheeky twist to the lyrics that only those present would enjoy.

The night ended with a bang as Plainsunset graced the stage. The indie/pop punk band treated us to a throwback of their classic hits like 'Postcards from Paradise', 'Girl on Queen Street', and 'Photo of Us'.

While there were some technical issues along the way, it did little to dampen the mood as the crowd was constantly lively throughout the festival. IGNITE! Music Festival will be having their 10th anniversary next year, so you can probably expect an even better line-up next year!
