#2: 11 to 12 March – Honne 

Honne, a Japanese word connoting ‘true feelings’, is a British electro-R&B duo who racked up millions of streams on Spotify and sold-out concerts, including two in Singapore previously.

It concedes that downfall follows after every peak, but in the same sense, there will be a peak after every trough.

Tickets are sold out on the official website, but you may seek for sellers online through Facebook etc.
