All you need to know about Shine Festival 2015 in 2 minutes!

If you’re in Singapore, chances are, you’ve probably heard about Shine Festival happening tomorrow. Here’s what you need to know in just 2 minutes (or less)!

  1. Party away

Shine Festival a youth festival slash open street party and urban playground, hosted by the National Youth Council. This free 3-day event will feature both international and local celebrities, meet-and-greets, as well opportunities for participants to get involved in performances and competitions. More on these activities in a bit! But first, be prepared to…

  1. Ditch the car

Or at least, don’t expect to be able to drive along Orchard on Saturday (11 July)- it’ll be closed from 6 to 11pm. The area affected is the segment between Scotts Road and Bideford Road as well as the carriageway of Mount Elizabeth in the direction of Orchard Road.

For Friday and Sunday, it probably won’t be a good idea to drive either since there’ll be much competition for parking spaces as the festival will be ongoing.

Now, onto the highlights of the festival…

  1. Turn it up

A large part of this festival will be on music and dance. You’ll get to see the likes of Shigga Shay, Arden Cho, Charlie Lim and many more. Plus, you can sign up for the show choir competition too!

  1. Urban Sports

Marvel at freestyle football, slacklining, freerunning and more. Also, pick up a few tricks from Football Freestyle World Champion himself!

  1. Get Artsy

There’ll be a 3D art installation, an interactive tunnel, a graffiti competition with Shigga Shay, and more for the creative and artsy folks out there!

  1. Local Talent

Get to see 987 stars and djs, pick up a tip or two from them, and don’t forget to hang out with the Night Owl Cinematics crew!

Here’s an infographic of all of the activities and locations:
