The eighth edition of Laneway Festival Singapore delivered in big names and big sounds — fans reeling off from Wolf Alice's climactic finale were only greeted by an almost-flawless streak of sets on the big stages that began with Slowdive, and ended triumphantly with The War On Drugs.

And for the troopers who stayed on from the early afternoon, the oppressive heat were no match for the intensity that laid onstage. Amateur Takes Control's mathy antics incited mosh pits, and Billie Eilish fevered screams.

If 2017 was a disappointment in blockbuster names, 2018 silenced all naysayers with clever programming that allowed indie rock, R&B, hip-hop, metal, electro-pop, neo-soul, folk, dancehall — and whatever Father John Misty plays — to co-exist within the grounds of Gardens By The Bay. Audacious and all-encompassing, Laneway Festival 2018 reminded us just why we willfully sweat it out under the Singaporean heat every January. Let's hope future editions are worth it too. 

Here's what we caught throughout the day.

Apologies to THELIONCITYBOY, whose set was missed out by our fervent (but exhausted) photographers.
