Artbox 2018: Here’s What To Expect At Singapore’s Largest Pop-Up Creative Market This May To June
Can you hear that? It’s millenials screaming in excitement because Artbox 2018 is now less than a month away!
With 240 retail booths, 160 F&B stalls and 6km of fairy lights, you definitely won’t want to miss out on the fun.
Even those who hate crowds — the venue is 3 times bigger than the previous year, so there’s nothing holding you back now right?
Here’s an ultimate sneak peak into the delicious food, trendy fashion and crafts that we’ll find there.
Insta worthiness level 999
Artbox’s artsy-fartsy chill vibe is sure to fit nicely into anyone’s Instagram feed.
A simple reason being the 6km of fairy lights that’ll make you swoon and say ‘omg I can’t even’.
Bonus: Check what time the sun sets before coming. You might get to feast your eyes on the most gorgeous skies.
Snap away! We think there’s no shame in being an Instahoe.
There’s going to be a fleet of vintage cars and kombis, an excellent prop in capturing the perfect Instagram photo.
Escape into the Oasis – this year’s theme for Artbox Singapore – and hop into the foam pit decked with pool floaties!
We’ve seen them too many times on Instagram, and it’s finally our turn!
Food, glorious food
Singaporeans don’t just live to eat, we live to take pictures of our food too. Here are some of the most gram-worthy grubs that will be at Artbox 2018!
Cereal Citizen, famous for their cronut shakes and cereal buffets for those who can eat breakfast at any time of the day.
Cool off from the heat with some refreshing blends from The Juicy Way. They make good IG props too.
Easy Eggs are for quail egg lovers! Dressing includes choices ranging from Japanese mentaiko to Sriracha Thai Chili.
Cakerholic would be selling homebaked tarts and cupcakes. Those with a sweet tooth, be sure to check it out!
Forget Liho or Koi, Waan Cha is joining the milk tea madness and they are bringing new flavors to the table!
Craving truffle or raclette cheese? Be Frank has got you covered. Just look at the yellow gooey richness.
No time to go ovewr to Bangkok? Soi 47 brings authentic Thai street fare to you.
A little dessert never hurt anyone. The M Plot is known for their innovative creations, like Salted Egg Yolk x Curry or even Green Tea x Red Bean macarons.
Who’s up for freshly popped gourmet organic popcorn from The Kettle Gourmet? How can you possibly resist the buttery fragrance as you stroll past?
Did we mention they have Ba Kwa popcorn? Looks like our afternoon snacking options or more or less settled.
Artsy Fartsy Crafts
You need a break in between food runs. Browse art and pick up some souvenirs maybe?
Clayranee, an artist from Thailand, hand-makes the most adorable kitchenware.
Urban Indigo Bangkok is known for their creative tie-dye patterns and unique cutting.
Lullabuy and Lullathings have the most adorable earrings. Yes, you can wear gold-plated geometric alpacas on your ears.
Wish you could bring your pooch out? Just get Nokkajib to do a on-the-spot drawing of your pooch on your bags, hats or shirts and now they can be with you wherever you go.
Moonset is a street fashion brand that all the cool kids are carrying. Donning a particular brand doesn’t instantly make you cool, btw. It’s the swagger.
Contrary to popular belief, Porky Studio does not sell Char Siew or Shao Rou. Their delicately crafted wood home decor pieces are still as exciting though.
OMG OMG OMG
We can’t wait. We’ll help them set up if it means being able to bring Artbox to life this weekend.
Buy everything! Eat everything!
Even if you’re broke AF, just cosy up in the hammocks and jive to the beat of live bands playing.
