This year’s Singapore Night Festival (SNF), which takes places from now till August 26 at the Bras Basah.Bugis (BBB) precinct, is lighting up the nights with over 50 that illuminate the BBB precinct and connects its history with contemporary experiences for all to enjoy.
Guided by the theme Singapore, the Great Port City, SNF 2023 sheds light on Singapore’s evolution from a vital port city to today’s dynamic modern metropolis.
This year’s highlight act, Time is a Black Circle by Dawn Ng, transports festival-goers to the roaring sixties and seventies to experience the discothèques located in the BBB precinct, where they get to roller skate in a cylindrical “disco time portal” and relive a bygone era, or choose the non-skating option to enjoy an immersive multi-sensorial experience of psychedelic colours and nostalgic tunes of the discothèque era.
Festival-goers can also enjoy a six-minute theatrical experience that takes them on a journey through 700 years of Singapore’s port city history; a homage to Singapore’s cultural heritage and history of its flora and fauna motifs with the garden projection of traditional wood carvings; as well as SNF’s first dedicated family zone at Fort Canning.
There are also local delicacies like kueh to indulge in at the Festival Village @ Armenian Street organised by the Peranakan Museum, and the Main Festival Village @ SMU Campus Green features over 10 F&B stalls and SNF-exclusive tipples to enjoy.
