SINGAPORE: The Singapore Night Festival, an annual nocturnal showcase of aerial performances, music, dance and installation artworks, returns this year with organisers promising a “louder, wilder and edgier” festival than in previous years.

At a sneak preview on Tuesday evening (July 22), organisers unveiled a key highlight of the festival – Night Lights, a tribute to the power of nature and the creation of light, featuring light artworks by both local and foreign artists.

French artist-photographer Clement Briend, who is showcasing his renowned Divine Trees installation in Singapore for the first time, will project three-dimensional images of Asian deities onto the trees outside the National Museum.

Students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design will also be taking part in the festival for the first time, contributing three light art installations.

This year’s festival, into its seventh edition, will be held over the last two weekends of August and run from 7pm to 2am.
