More details are at WhiteSands.com.sg, event runs from 15-25 June.

 

4. The Great Singapore Sale

Every Singaporean’s favourite non-holiday to celebrate, the Great Singapore Sale is practically a cultural extravaganza where we can all stand to save a little money on some of our favourite shopping items. Be sure to check out the bargains all around town with some retailers offering as much as 70% off. And it’s not just limited to shopping, check out hotels, spas and F&B venues who will also be offering up some much appreciated discounts. Credit: Singapore Tourism Board

The ultimate house music festival is back this summer with an amazing line up of stellar DJs including Skirllex, Alesso, Kygo and deadmau5 all slated to perform during the two day, three-stage event. The acts will be spread across three stages going late into the night with only the most electrifying, pulsing music that makes this event one of the most energetic in town.

From: June 15-16

 

6. Artbox Singapore

If you love shopping lesser-known and up-and-coming brands, don’t miss Artbox Singapore, ready for its second year. While experience from last year taught us that the crowds might be a little next level, the goodies you’re likely to find might just outweigh the hassle. Expect artisans from around Asia to be showcasing at the event, making it a great place to pick up a few presents for other people (and for yourself of course). The event will run over two weekends, so hopefully the second one taking place on 1-3J une is a bit quieter. Photo credit: AsiaOne

From: 1-3 June
