Watch live performances by Nick Jonas, CL, Alessia Cara, Afgan and more from MTV Spotlight @ Hyperplay!

15 August 2018

On August 4–5 history was made at Hyperplay, the first esports and music festival in Southeast Asia — the intensity of an ASEAN-wide League Of Legends tournament sharing the stage with top international pop talents, all witnessed by a wonderfully diverse and fervent crowd.

The festival's diversity came from more than just the crowd and the esports + music pairing. The concert element, MTV Spotlight @ Hyperplay, featured intuitive pop acts like Nick Jonas, Alessia Cara and The Sam Willows sharing the stage with the hip hop-inflicted mayhem of CL, the rock theatrics of Slot Machine, and the sultry R&B of Afgan.

It was indeed a rare sight at Singapore Indoor Stadium — but if you weren't there or online watching the livestream, we've got a special post-show treat for you regardless.
