» more from Art and Culture

The St. Jerome's Laneway Festival is on in Singapore this weekend, kicking off what promises to be an action-packed year for Asia's indie music fans.

Already home to some of the world's largest electronic parties, Asia's lesser-known independent music scene has grown rapidly. And with revenue streams ranging from ticket sales to merchandise, indie festivals are becoming big business that promise to breathe new life into any city's tourism market.

With more boutique festivals popping up, competition has risen over the past two years as promoters race to book both established and fresh-faced talent, leaving fans spoilt for choice.

Here are a few of the largest Asian festivals that you won't want to miss.
