Singapore Night Festival, one of the red dot’s more anticipated art festivals, is back again in August for its 15th edition! Singapore Night Festival 2024 is set to captivate festivalgoers with an exploration of the concept of play and childhood inspired by the historical significance of the Bras Basah.Bugis (BBB) precinct as the birthplace of some of Singapore’s first schools.

This edition marks a significant expansion, stretching from its traditional two-weekend format to a three-weekend extravaganza. Singapore Night Festival usually lights up the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct plus there is always an exciting line-up of programmes to look forward to including dynamic projection mappings featuring works by local artists, Night Lights installations and more! In addition to interactive activities, you can also look forward to unique food and retail experiences.

While we await details of the Singapore Night Festival 2024, here’s what went down last year:

Highlights of Singapore Night Festival 2023:

1. Projection Mapping

Projection mapping is one of our favourite highlights of the annual Singapore Night Festival. It’s so fun to wander around all the buildings and watch the buildings come to life during the Singapore Night Festival. You can search all the different displays on this Festival Map and most of these are free and easy to walk to enjoy at your leisure.

2. Night Lights: 13 Installations

This year, there will be a total of 13 night light installations that will light up the streets of Singapore and invite us to explore Singapore’s evolution through the years. A Stone’s Throw (Away) pictured above was created based on the legend of the Singapore Stone that was thrown from Fort Canning Hill to the Singapore River. This ‘reconstructed’ relic comes to life when festival-goers stand in front of the panels.

When: 18 – 26 August 2023, 7:30pm – 12am
Where: National Museum Singapore, Stamford Arts Centre, Bugis Street, Raffles City Singapore, National Design Centre Armenian Street, Funan Kinetic Wall
