Hello and welcome to a guide on the free light shows and night festivals in Singapore. Looking to enjoy “nightlife” here in Singapore? Nope, not by getting drunk and waking up with a hangover the next morning… There are plenty of free light shows and night festivals that you can catch – Read on!

 

2022 COVID UPDATES

Masks are no longer required outdoors, but Covid is still around. When it gets crowded, it’s best to still mask on to protect yourselves… Especially for you guys who are here on a holiday. It will really suck a whole load to get sick for an entire week.

 

 

1) SPECTRA LIGHT SHOW

Location: Right in front of Marina Bay Sands. [Map]
Time: Every day at 8 pm and 9 pm. Extra show at 10 pm on Fri and Sat.
Admission: Free.
Link: Click Here.

Yes, this is a totally free light show every single day. What’s more, it’s located right at the doorsteps of the iconic Marina Bay Sands. While it is cool to watch the show upfront, some people also like to take photos of this light show on the opposite shore – With the Marina Bay Sands as the backdrop.

 

2) DIGITAL LIGHT CANVAS

Location: Inside Marina Bay Sands Shoppes, right beside the food court. [Map]
Time: Every day 11 am to 9 pm.
Admission: $5 per person.

This is another “light show” that is inside the Marina Bay Sands Shoppes… Well, it’s more like a “digital playground for kids” than an actual light show. While there is an admission fee, nobody is stopping you from taking pictures on the outside.

 

 

3) ART SCIENCE MUSEUM

Location: Beside Marina Bay Sands Shoppes. [Map]
Time: Every day 10 am to 6 pm.
Admission: $14.70 per person. Also depending on the exhibition.

Some people will probably walk right past the “cool looking white lotus” building beside the Marina Bay Sands and miss the Art Science Museum. Yes, it is actually a museum. Not the musty kind of museum, but one that exhibits art pieces made by technology. If you have some money to spare, head right in – You Instagrammers are going to love this place to bits.

 

4) GARDEN RHAPSODY

Location: Gardens By The Bay Supertree Grove. [Map]
Time: Every day 7.45 pm and 8.45 pm.
Admission: Free.
Link: Click Here.

I don’t think this needs a lot of introduction, the Garden Rhapsody at Gardens By The Bay is pretty much already world-famous. It runs at 7.45 pm and 8.45 pm every night, and the best part – It’s totally free. Not to be missed if you are a visitor.

 

 

5) ILIGHT SINGAPORE

iLight Singapore is an annual light festival where artists all over the world gather to turn the entire Marina Bay into an open-air art exhibition. Yes, art pieces will be scattered all across the bay, free admission.

 

6) HSBC RAIN VORTEX

Location: Changi Jewel. [Map]
Time: 8 pm and 9 pm daily. Extra show at 10 pm during weekends (Fri, Sat, Sun).

I don’t think this needs much introduction either… The crazy fountain in the middle of Changi Jewel is already worldwide famous. It lights up at night, and there are free light shows at 8 pm and 9 pm daily. With an additional one at 10 pm during the weekends. Do catch this one, it’s magical at night.
