The Singapore Night Festival’s 14th edition will be happening this year from August 18 to 26 in the overarching theme of Singapore, the Great Port City. The festival intends to showcase Singapore’s evolution and growth beyond its early role as a port city into a dynamic modern metropolis as it is today. This year is set to illuminate the Bras Basah.Bugis (BBB) precinct – one of Singapore’s oldest districts and referred to as a “treasure trove of cultural and architectural references” by the Urban Redevelopment Authority. 

Last year’s edition, Rebirth, showcased more than 55 programmes that included immersive night light installations and captivating performances. We can anticipate a similar experience this year together with an abundance of multi-cultural festival offerings featuring works by local artists. Festival attendees have the opportunity to explore museums and heritage buildings throughout the BBB precinct. Through dynamic project mappings, installations as well as food and retail options, the festival aims to highlight Singapore's transformation from a small island to its current status as a prominent global hub.

Stay tuned for more information available July 18.
