SNF 2019’s ‘Keep Dreaming’ Night Lights | Credit: Spectaculaires

By now, you’d have covered every corner of Jewel and tasted every burger Shake Shack has to offer. It’s even getting stale staring at the tax-paid waterfall. Well, we suggest you check out the upcoming Singapore Night Festival.

For 12 consecutive years, the Singapore Night Festival has been an iconic event because of its Instagrammable light exhibitions, illumination of streets and buildings and artistic performances by local and international artists.

From 23 to 31 August, 7.30 pm to 12 midnight, there will be some 17 creative night lights and approximately 40 performances happening around the Bras Basah and Bugis district. Since it can get quite mind-boggling to decide which programme to attend to, we’ve decided suss out the best for you. So charge your cameras and dress light, let’s get into SNF 2019.

If you’ve seen the interiors of Aēsop and Coffee Man Roasters, you’d have seen how creative company Asylum brings an aesthetic touch to brands. To commemorate its 20th anniversary, it will be celebrating with the installment of an illuminated geometrical structure, which highlights the core of the company’s design inspiration — minimalism.

S.C.U.L.P.T by Yann Nguema

He will be projecting his latest work of fine lasers beamed precisely within the edges and contours of the neoclassical Armenian Church.
