Are you ready? Then buckle up for a truly wicked weekend.
We know, Singapore’s Night Festival started last week but this weekend, the festival is getting bigger and better. Compared to last week’s minimal light installations, this weekend sees various performances by local artists (yes Jasmine Sokko we’re looking at you), pro-wrestlers grappling it out at SMU Campus Green and more.
Do keep a lookout for GLOBE, an impressive circus-like performance that employs pyrotechnics and video projections to create the visualisation of the joy of flying. Expect an amazing light show accompanied by an all-around sound system. Get there early though, it’s going to get busy.
Singapore Night Festival: Civic District
When: Until Sunday Aug 27, 2017
