The annual Singapore Night Festival returns for its 10th edition over two weekends this August from 18 – 27 August. The free to enter festival takes place at the Bras Basah and Bugis (‘BBB’) Precinct in the heart of Singapore’s Museum District and Art Scene.
Night owls will enjoy the many events held after the sun sets at cultural institutions such as the National Museum of Singapore, the Peranakan Museum, Singapore Art Museum, The Substation and more. A favorite highlight is the interactive light installations that turn the facades of the Singapore Art Museum and the National Museum of Singapore into ephemeral works of wonder.
Accompanied by various street and music performances by local and international artists the festival places Singapore’s heritage, arts and culture in an entirely different light. Essentially a massive street party, events are focused on creating a jubilant atmosphere of fun and entertainment. Visitors can enjoy musical performances, improvisational theatre, film screenings, roving street performers, colorful building-sized light installations, dance, aerial performances, demonstrations of magic and illusion and cultural exhibitions. The best thing is that the festival is free to attend!
