The iconic local (that is now internationally known) night festival that has transformed and grown exponentially over the past 8 years, now in its 9th edition, the Singapore Night Festival is back again, taking place this coming weekend Friday 19th and Saturday 20th August 2016 and the following weekend Friday 26th and Saturday 27th August 2016 at the Bras Basah Bugis Precinct from 730pm to 2am. The theme for Singapore Night Festival 2016 is Inventions and Innovation, transforming Bras Basah Bugis Precinct, Singapore’s arts and heritage district using science fiction and fantasy, coming together to give visitors unforgettable experiences, performances and lighting artworks!

I have personally seen how much it has transformed over the past 8 editions of the Singapore Night Festival since her maiden debut in 2008, attending, watching, photographing and documenting them down here inside my Flickr photography collection. Year 2016 is the 9th edition and in year 2017, it will be the 10th edition! Keep a lookout for my updates on Twitter, Instagram and FB Page, along with the photographs that I would take and upload them into my Singapore Night Festival Flickr collection!

During the Singapore Night Festival 2016, I would be going around, watching, enjoying and taking photographs of this iconic night festival. I would try to cover and share as much as possible, it would be a challenge given the wide and diverse festival activities, artworks, performances taking place over 5 zones!
