Singapore River Festival 2016

Singapore River Festival returns on 4th and 5th November with a River Connections theme to celebrate the vibrant culture and lifestyle along Singapore River precinct. The Festival will host a variety of performances and activities across Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Robertson Quay. It's suitable for all ages.

For the first time ever, a tightrope will be extended across the river for Crossings by Underclouds Cie who will have its maiden performance in Asia. This headline act blends tightrope acrobatics, dazzling choreography, music effects and multimedia projections, exploring the extraordinary theme of connections in all our ordinary lives. There'll be two shows each night at 8pm and 9.30pm above the river channel.
