In 2017 alone, Singapore has seen numerous concerts by world-class artists, which include Coldplay and Britney Spears, Ultra Singapore, Laneway Festival, the World Gourmet Summit, the Grand Prix Singapore and the list goes on. With the year coming to its final chapters, let's take a quick peek at some of the events that will help to end 2017 with a bang!
Whisk(e)y lovers look this way because Whisky Live Singapore is back for the eighth edition! This yearly sold-out event is set to take place over the weekend on 25th and 26th November 2017 at ThreatreWorks. This year's show will highlight the art that goes into the crafting, bottling and labelling of whisk(e)y and spirits, and the art of appreciating fine libation.
On top of annual must-have - the tasting hall, there will also be an exciting cocktail and food trail, an unprecedented art showcase by leading creatives of the industry and eye-opening masterclasses with the experts. Rumour has it that Nikka Coffey Gin and Vodka and some other rare bottles will also make their Asia and worldwide debut at the event.
For those new to the scene, a single day discovery pass allows unlimited access to the hundreds of expressions at the tasting hall and art showcase, a complimentary cocktail and food voucher and discounts at the pop-up store. Masterclasses are also affordably priced at SGD25 per pax for those who wish to learn from the masters of the industry. On the other hand, whisk(e)y and spirit aficionados may wish to splurge a little on the highly-coveted and very limited VIP passes which promises, on top of the aforementioned offerings, early access before the official opening and most importantly, exclusive access to the VIP area for tastings of extremely rare bottles of whiskies and spirits.
An annual spooks event held at the Universal Studios Singapore in anticipation of Halloween, it's the perfect night time recreation for those who seek adrenaline rush without breaking a sweat at the gym.
Coming to its seventh year, the Halloween Horror Nights aptly adopts the theme of the seven deadly sins with five haunted houses, two scare zones and two world-class shows which promise to be more terrifying than before. Groups, students, Mastercard and Maybank Card holders are entitled to special discounts but if you have some moolah to spare, go for the R.I.P tours or hotel packages for an even more immersive experience.
Concerts - Ed Sheeran and Backstreet Boys Ed Sheeren: If you haven't bought your tickets earlier, just cross your fingers that someone wouldn't be able to make it at the last minute. But if you're one of the lucky early birds who camped in front of the laptop with a double-shot espresso earlier in May, have fun!
Backstreet Boys: Yes, the boys-turn-men are back after their last sold-out show two years ago. The Backstreet Boys are scheduled to perform at the National Stadium on 21st October as part of the entertainment line-up for the Women's Tennis Association finals. Instead of screechy screams from teenagers, expect to hear the equally hearing-damaging but totally justified screams from the Gen Xs and Ys.
Marina Bay Singapore Countdown
Rated one of the best New Year's Eve countdown locations in the world, Singapore's annual iconic New Year's Eve celebration will be held at the Marina Bay. Join in the early celebrations at selected areas around the bay - from Marina Bay to the Civic District from early evening all the way into the night. Let the magnificent Midnight Display with music, lights, lasers and fireworks ring in the new year!
Topping the chart in terms of tourist spending and being the second most visited destinations in Asia-Pacific, it makes perfect sense that the city state has one of the most vibrant entertainment scenes in the region.
