21 Aug 2015 by Venetia Sng

The annual Singapore Night Festival is back for their eighth year and how else to celebrate the nation’s golden jubilee but with lots of Glitz and Glamour. Heading down to #SGNightFest this weekend but still kinda lost as to where to go and what to do? Here’s the Teenage guide to the first weekend of #SGNightFest!

Gear up with these necessities

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.

How can we forget about food
