SINGAPORE – Upcoming e-sports and music festival Hyperplay has revealed its first wave of performers, with South Korea superstar CL, Thailand’s rock band Slot Machine, Indonesian idol Afgan and Singapore’s favourite The Sam Willows.


Hyperplay, the first integrated ASEAN e-sports and music festival, is set to feature MTV Spotlight, which brings multi-genre talents onto a single stage at different times during Hyperplay. The two-day ticketed event will take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Saturday, 4 August and Sunday, 5 August. Additional acts will be announced in the coming weeks.


Powered by Riot Games and MTV, Hyperplay is presented by Singapore’s Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth and the National Youth Council, and supported by gold sponsor Clear Men.


Hyperplay will integrate the two biggest pop culture pillars of this generation, e-sports and music, into a single weekend event. The e-sports tournament will share the stage with MTV Spotlight, comprised of four electrifying music performance segments by international, regional and local artists. The music performances will also be edited into a 60-minute MTV Spotlight special, which will premiere in August on MTV in Southeast Asia.


Tickets for Hyperplay are available on the festival’s official website


The two-day event will also be streamed live on the website, with key segments broadcast live across Southeast Asia. This first edition of Hyperplay will feature the first ever League of Legends ASEAN tournament with national teams from the 10 ASEAN countries. They will clash head-on in two days of intense League of Legends matches, where the victorious team will earn the title of ASEAN champion.
