Garden of Angels by Theatre Tol (Belgium) at National Museum of Singapore

Be wow-ed by Theater Tol’s latest performance! A vibrant parade starting from Armenian Street brings to life a surreal world of dancers, musicians, flowers and animals that take to the streets in revelry. The parade culminates at the National Museum of Singapore, with a spectacular aerial carousel of angels descending from the heavens and showering gifts over everyone.

Pixels Wave 2015 by Miguel Chevalier (France) at National Design Centre

Take flight on this giant light carpet inside the National Design Centre, featuring multi-coloured graphic scenes and geometric patterns that react to visitor movement and interaction. A collaboration between artist Miguel Chevalier and local designers Carrie K and Depression, this new creative work utilises optical illusion to create the sensation of a shifting kaleidoscopic floor. Totally #Instaworthy!

The Local People X Singapore Art Museum Night Fest Art Market

This Saturday, the ever popular The Local People X Singapore Art Museum Night Fest Art Market is back again with an even bigger treasure trove of locally made artisanal goods, food and drinks. It’s for ONE NIGHT ONLY people! So head on down, get lost in the music, treat your mouth and shop shop shop!

Food Glorious Food

Churros by Bakes and Crafts at Festive Village

Trust us when we say that these are a must-try when you head down to the village this year! They serve 3 main flavours – Pandan Churros with Gula Melaka Sauce, Red Velvet Churros with Salted Caramel Sauce and the classic Churros coated with cinnamon sugar. We highly recommend the Pandan with Gula Melaka flavour, it’s the bomb!

Drinks with illuminated ice cubes by Kapok at National Design Centre

They serve a wide array of concoctions but it’s really the super cool ice cubes we want. How awesome does it look?!

Creamsicles by Neh Neh Pop at Festive Village

Double-coated creamsicles packed with outrageous flavours! Grab these pops before they go *pop*, they are super popular with festival goers and there were only 2 flavours left towards the end of the first night last weekend! Flavours to chiong for are the Mango Sticky Rice and Milo Dinosaur!

Crispy Roast Pork by Uncle G’s Handmade at Festive Village

In for something savoury? Go for Uncle G’s Handmade Signature Crispy Roast Pork! Though we didn’t try this dish personally, we’ve heard so many people rave about it and the never-ending queue really speaks for itself.

It’s going to be packed, it’s going to be squeezy, it’s going to be hot and humid! So be prepared by heading down to the Singapore Night Festival with the right gear.

Be at the right place at the right time

Not going to plant yourself at a particular zone? Take a walk around and check out these performances, installations and activities highlighted by the organisers themselves! I mean, it must be good if they took the time to do these guides right?

Highlights that you shouldn’t miss

But if you feel that the guides above are too intense and you just want to catch some of the highlights, here are our recommendations!

Anooki Celebrate Singapore by David Passegand & Moetu Batlle (France) at National Museum

The Anooki (Anook and Nooki) are the world’s smallest Inuits! Watch these adorable characters come to live and run riot across the facade of the National Museum in a story specially created for the festival. Dance and sing along to their irresistible tune and soak up their contagious energy.

Drawn in Light by Ralf Westerhof (Netherlands) at National Museum


This 12-metre-wide installation is made from metal wires, hand-bent into the form of a typical Amsterdam-style canal building. The sculpture not only reflects light but also hovers and rotates above the ground, inviting visitor interaction.

Alchemy by Starlight Alchemy (Singapore) at Singapore Art Museum

Catch the exhilarating fire and light performance by the Starlight Alchemy! Their spectacular showcase of multi-disciplinary flow arts combines a variety of aerial and large custom-made fire props, as well as LED technology performance props.

Live performances at Festival Village (SMU Campus Green)

How can we forget about food

“File check”!

If that didn’t send a shudder down your body, you’re honestly a trooper. For the rest of you, Teenage magazine is here to alleviate your stress. 

We’ve got a list of quiet cafes in Singapore for you to escape to for some R&R, food you can snack on to help relieve stress (yes, it’s true!) as well as steps you can take to get a good night’s rest

There’s no better way to talk about your problems than to sing it aloud – much like how cover girl Selena Gomez has been singing about her relationship with Bieber. We list the other issues she should wax lyrical about to shut the rumour mills down once and for all.

Plus, we pit the biggest K-pop groups against each other in the most explosive summer comeback showdown. Fans of Girls’ Generation, GOT7, Beast, SISTAR, Teen Top, Super Junior, Infinite, AOA and Girls’ Day need to pick up this issue, stat! 

Can’t get enough of BIGBANG? Neither can we! Find out what you missed out in their concerts around the region.
