Singapore Night Festival 2013

Singapore Night Festival 2013 happens on the last two weekends of August, with performances ranging from aerial, music, dance and installation artworks, located in Bras Brasah on 23, 24, 30 and 31 August 2013.

I was there with girlfriend last night, who was free to accompany me view the different performances and installations starting from Plaza Singapura, ending at Raffles City. There were many people at the Night Festival, very happening. We did not manage to go to ALL of the performances/exhibits due to the timings/dates of the show. Here are some of our key visits.

Absolut Canvas at the Singapore National Museum. I love the Absolut Vodka's Absolut Canvas exhibition the most. I'm a Absolut Vodka collector. And most of the bottles showcased are rare and special.

Mega stunt by 'Magic Babe' Ning and J C Sum at the Singapore National Museum - We were unable to see the actual performance as a huge crowd was already gathered there and we were only able to catch the performance's projection on the museum wall.

Travelling C.O.W at Armenian Street - A moving food truck selling local fusion delights like rendang burgers, satay hot dogs, laksa wraps and chilli crab pasta.

Visual Arts of Mixed Media (Wood, Laminates, Lights) at Armenian Street - One-word definitions of 'Aspiration' were collected from friends and more, and 365 of these were selected and laser-cut onto wood panels.  - Very inspirational installation.

Bras Basah Bugis Arts Flea Market at Chijmes - A market hosting independent businesses and creative individuals. Lots of people in there.

At the end of the day, we were feeling hungry and tired. Aching legs and backs. But it was a great night. Absolutely worth it.

A nocturnal extravaganza of spectacular aerial performances, music, dance and installation artworks at the heart of Bras Basah, Bugis precinct, Singapore’s arts and heritage district.

The main events and special events with late night openings will take place at cultural venues such as the National Museum of Singapore, the Peranakan Museum, Singapore Art Museum and The Substation and More! Treat your senses to an outdoor showcase of spectacular interactive light installations, and immerse yourself in a vibrant showcase of heritage, arts and culture in Singapore.

In conjunction with Singapore Night Festival, National Heritage Board will be presenting Night Lights, an outdoor showcase of spectacular light installations. Night Lights 2013, which promises to be a visual feast for all to enjoy, will feature light installations at Singapore Art Museum, National Museum of Singapore, The Cathay, School of The Arts and Raffles City.
