2. Ultra Singapore

September seems to be the season for parties, because our humble little island will be playing host to Ultra Singapore just a week before the F1 weekend. The electronic dance music festival, which is one of the biggest in the world, will include a stellar lineup of well-known names like Above & Beyond, Alesso, Kygo and Axwell Λ Ingrosso. With three main stages set against the scenic Marina Bay backdrop, this year’s event promises to be a full-scale upgrade from last year’s Road To Ultra. For the complete lineup, see here.

4. Tropical Traumas: A Series of Cinematographic Choreographies

Although it kicked off in August, the Singapore International Festival of Arts continues to celebrate our growing arts scene with an impressive lineup of shows and installations. This September, be sure to check out Tropical Traumas: A Series of Cinematographic Choreographies at The Meadow @ Gardens By The Bay. The multimedia performance, which was created by renowned film director Brian Gothong Tan, explores the historic tale of Sir Stamford Raffles through the use of performers, vivid imagery and ethereal music. Oh, and have we mentioned how admission is free? Not a bad idea for a post-dinner date activity.

Date: 2 – 4 September 2016

Time: 9pm

Venue: The Meadow @ Gardens By The Bay

Admission: Free
