Singapore Night Festival 2016 – Inventions and Innovation

The Singapore Night Festival, as its namesake suggests, is a night festival of fiesta and revelry. The annual festival’s longevity – this year is the ninth edition – conveys its popularity with the masses and its ability to reinvent and innovate. Tens of thousands throng to attend programmes and shows put together by an impressive line-up of both Singaporean and international artists. Immersive activities, light projections and light projections are presented over two weekends on 19, 20, 26 and 27 August 2016.

Festival director, (and director of the National Museum of Singapore), Ms Angelita Teo, said, “The Singapore Night Festival is one of most anticipated outdoor nocturnal events in the world. Its success is contingent on the unwavering support we have received from every festival-goer and partner especially our friends in the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct.”

The Bras Basah.Bugis precinct is most apt as the festival venue. As the district with noticeably the highest concentration of museums, heritage buildings, art groups and art schools, it is most well known as the arts and heritage district of Singapore. Watch this precinct come to life as the Singapore Night Festival 2016 – Inventions and Innovation whips up a visual feast. Visit http://nightfest.sg/ for more information.
