Returning events to look out for in the coming months.
Design Film Festival
More arty gems by the likes of Marina Abramovic and Gergory Crewdson at this year’s edition. It’s great that the much-loved fest has decided to come home after successful editions in Berlin, Bangkok and Portland.
Singapore Food Festival
Sample local heritage delicacies tapas-style and enjoy a one-of-a-kind dining experience at the River Safari—the first time that the fest will be held at an unexpected venue.
Phantom of the Opera
Worth the ticket price alone for its hypnotic set—look out for the twirling giant chandeliers.
Sundown Ultra Marathon
Back after a year’s absence, the overnight race is set to flag-off at the Marina Barrage, where dedicated runners can push their physical prowess to new heights by racing in the 100km Ultra-Marathon.
This year’s theme is “If The World Changed”, with a confirmed lineup including filmmakers Royston Tan and Boo Junfeng and Cultural Medallion recipient Lee Wen.
Singapore Writers’ Festival
We had The Hours’ Michael Cunningham last year; this year will feature philosopher A.C. Grayling and crime novelist Peter James.
Affordable Art Fair
Far and away the best art fair if you’re looking for works by emerging artists, with many priced below $1,000.
Still the most reliable dance gig and beach party in town.
