The Artists Behind the Lights
It’s not just about the lights, dude.
It’s also about the people behind them.
This year’s festival got a diverse bunch of 22 artists from eight countries.
All together, they represent the theme of ‘A New Wave’, playing with the colour blue and sustainable materials.
Eh, remember the blue lights on the beach last year? It’s like that, but more arty, can?
More Than Just Lights
Think this is all? Aiyah, no lah!
Besides all the pretty lights, there’s also GastroBeats at the Festival Village.
Think about it – mouth-watering food, live music, bouncy castles.
Not forgetting the insightful Light Forum and the guided tours.
It’s like a buffet, but instead of food, you’re feasting your senses, you know?
This year’s i Light Singapore gonna be awesome, see you there!
