TGIF!: Your weekend guide (29-31 Aug 2014)

ARTS & CULTURE

It’s the final weekend for you to catch the Singapore Night Festival held in the Bugis and Bras Basah precincts. On Friday and Saturday in particular, you can get in on some raucous action with live wrestling matches outside The Substation.

We also highly recommend Ho Tzu Nyen’s ‘The Cloud of Unknowing’ at the Singapore Art Musuem chapel, where the famed visual art installation will be accompanied by live music from Bani Haykal and Randolf Arriola.

'The Cloud Of Unknowing' will be screened as part of the Singapore Night Festival

Here are some other highlights from the Singapore Night Festival 2014.

While you’re in the area, pop by the Singapore Art Museum for a night market by The Local People. There are art and food vendors as well as live music to entertain you, making it a great pitstop along Queen Street while you’re walking your way down the Night Festival route.

It's your last chance to catch Dick Lee's 'Hotpants'

This is also the last weekend to catch the revival of Dick Lee’s 1997 musical ‘Hotpants’. Set in 1972, the musical is as Singaporean as it gets, featuring ‘Talentime’ and Singapore Idol alumni as some of the cast.

After that, catch Dick Lee at a one-night-only concert celebrating his 40 years in music. There will be plenty of memorable songs and special guests.

Here’s an excerpt from his 30th anniversary concert

PARTIES & NIGHTLIFE

The Fashion TV Beach Festival returns to Tanjong Beach Club on Saturday 30 August. From 11am to 3am the next day, expect 15 hours of party music with DJs spinning and five fashion shows. You can even win diamonds in pairs worth over $28,000.

Singapore has been chosen as one of Heineken’s ‘Cities of the World’, and to celebrate, there will be a massive street party at Ann Siang Hill and Club Street this Saturday 30 August. There will be roving Samba performers, art installations and limited edition Singapore commemorative bottles. The party is from 8pm to 11pm.

Always wanted to come up close with a Lamborghini? These beautiful cars will be on display at the outdoor atrium of Wisma Atria from 28 August to 21 September, 11am to 9pm. They include rare and limited edition models such as the Sesto Elemento and the Reventon, and perennial favourite, the Aventador.
