The Singapore Night Festival is back, and it’s pulling out all the stops for its 10th anniversary. Attracting crowds of over 500,000, the annual light festival bonanza transforms the city into a carnival of arts and culture with family-friendly activities, interactive installations, and pop-up eateries across two weekends from August 18 to August 26. Created to follow this year’s theme of “Ten Magical Years,” the iconic Night Lights exhibition brings to life 13 Instagrammable light installations.

The Singapore Night Festival comprises five zones sprawled out from Cathay Green and Chijimes to Armenian Street and Waterloo Street. The festival has grown to become Singapore’s largest outdoor performing arts festival and includes artists from a variety of backgrounds, from acrobats to musicians. In celebration of its 10th anniversary, many performing artists that participated in previous years were invited back for the weeklong festival.

This year’s Night Lights exhibition includes 13 installations, including the signature highlights—interactive light installations that transform the facades of the Singapore Art Museum and the National Museum of Singapore into art. Artists from around the world were invited to create installations, which include EZ3kiel’s Convolutions, Karel Bata’s The Tree That Blinked, and LiteWerkz x 3M’s Tessellations of Time. This year, festivalgoers can also explore the event with free-to-rent bicycles provided by Hello, Bicycle! The festival concludes on August 26.
