While other parts of the world are basking in the summer sun, Singapore is turning up the heat with a smorgasbord of red, hot events on top of the Hari Raya public holiday on June 5.

Get pumped as the biggest dance festival Ultra returns with the biggest names in EDM. Prepare to be blown away by two mega ballet showcases – the Grammy-nominated Zulu ballet INALA featuring Grammy Award-winners Soweto Gospel Choir, and the ballet powerhouse Paris Opera Ballet. Revel in nostalgia as you catch Boyzone one last time before they hang their boyband shoes, and fulfill your dreams of becoming a Pokémon trainer at Sentosa's first Pokémon Carnival. Since it's the June school holiday too, unleash your inner kid at Gallery Children's Biennale and Children's Festival. And what's June without the Great Singapore Sale?
