Singapore Night Festival 2014

"Bold and Beautiful"

The Singapore Night Festival returns with a “Bold and Beautiful” theme! Featuring an explosive line-up of local and international artists, this year’s acts will go all out to thrill and tantalise with louder, edgier, and wilder performances. Immerse yourself in the grand spectacle of William Close’s Earth Harp, an ethereal performance-installation celebrating music in architectural environments, and never-before-seen collaborations with home-grown festival drum masters, ZingO, well-known female songstresses, Sound of Sirens and Austrian-based collective, Phoenix.

Chance upon magical Night Lights works through our festival grounds and re-discover the beauty of the spaces around you. Expect the unexpected at this seventh edition of the beloved festival where glamour and fine art takes its place among eclectic urban collectives, and high-octane pro wrestling showdowns alongside wacky improv acts such as Fat Kids are Harder to Kidnap: Something Borrowed, Something New by How Drama. To cap off an amazing night, don’t forget to visit the Festival Village for some good food or rock out at the Night Festival’s first-ever Block Party at Armenian Street!

The festival grounds are composed of five key zones – Pretty Arty, where an ensemble of beautiful, grand and vivid performances take center stage; Young Hearts, a space where budding artists and their playful, thought-provoking acts will tickle and charm our senses, Block Party, an eclectic street of raucous gigs, for those seeking a wild night of fun; Festival Village, a tantalising smorgasbord of artisan F&B, chill-out entertainment and a trendy flea market; and Roundabout Midnight a curation of enigmatic works for festival goers to let their wildest imaginations take flight.
