Night Lights 2018

Singapore Night Festival is back again with a nine nights of light installations (17–25 August) and three consecutive nights of performances (23–25 Aug) to close off the event on a high.

With this year’s theme, Bring On The Night, the festival features art installations that are more participatory than past editions, allowing visitors to feel more immersed and engaged in the art.

The festival is spread across 5 zones in the Bras Basah.Bugis Precinct and the Night Lights will be open from 7:30PM — 12:00AM. Do take note that bag checks will be conducted at Zones 3 and 4 (Cathay Green and SMU Campus Green) this year, so you are advised to only bring small bags, or no bags if you wish to visit the Ember Rain installation and Festival Village area.

A tip from the creators: The light and music sequence takes place in the first and last scenes, then the middle space. Once the lights take pause, you should already move on, because there is likely a huge queue of people waiting behind you!

The Search is located at the National Design Centre’s Design Gallery 1, where the popular Phosphene was installed last year. Both works were designed by students from Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Expect long wait times as the capacity for this installation is very small.

Due to road works, Armenian Street is closed for pedestrians if you’re strolling from Stamford Road and Fort Canning Link, so you’ll need to walk along a tiny corridor below the shophouses or go through SMU School of Law.
