What To Do This Weekend (31 May to 2 Jun 2024)

Ready for the weekend? Here's what you can look forward to this week.

1. i Light Singapore 2024

i Light Singapore returns for its 10th edition from 31 May to 23 June.

This year, the festival is themed "Cyclical Nature", drawing inspiration from the colour green from i Light Singapore's Visible Light narrative.

With green often associated with nature as well as sustainable concepts such as the circular economy and upcycling, Cyclical Nature explores and reimagines the endless potential of everyday objects that are disposed of and their impact on nature through redesign, restoration and repurposing.

You can look forward to gorgeous, larger-than-life light installations at Marina Bay, South Beach, Millenia Walk, and, for the first time, Tanjong Pagar. These breathtaking installations place waste materials centre stage in the creative process, conscientiously extending their lifespan and showcasing their hidden potential as they invite you to rethink the relationship between products and waste from a fresh perspective.

In addition, the ever-popular GastroBeats is back to provide a gastronomical feast for your senses. You'll be spoilt for choice with the inclusion of more sustainably-produced food options, including items cultivated through organic farming methods, locally-grown seasonal produce and ethically sourced meat.

An enticing array of local and international cuisine awaits, ranging from Mexican tacos to Russian dumplings, prawn noodles and more.

And, of course, you're invited to let loose and groove to the beats of local talents and performers who will keep you dancing all night long. Furbuddies are welcome too!
