GlowBeat Festival At *SCAPE Playspace
At *SCAPE Playspace, there’s a
glowing growing sense of keen anticipation in the air.
From 9-11 Feb, the space will come aglow thanks to GlowBeat x *SCAPE — an event that combines lights, music, food and retail organised by our friends at LST Events. We talked to them to get an idea of what to expect.
GlowBeat x *SCAPE seeks to capture the quirky essence of being a millennial, in a 3-day bazaar and mini-carnival open from 11am to 11pm.
You’ll be able to stroll down to Singapore’s unofficial version of “ArtBox”, from Somerset MRT station.
We expect an insane rush when everyone chiongs there. So here’s a quick first look at some of the highlights.
Move aside Insta-worthy spots that are so 2000-and-late. These new IG-worthy spots in town are sure to give you a ballin’ feed.
1. Giant Illuminated Ball Pit
Make glow-angels with thousands of luminous spheres or capture yourself free-falling in slow-mo into an abyss of pastel neon bubbles.
Simply purchase $30 worth of carnival tokens in a single receipt, for free entry for 2 to the ball pit.
2. Glow Bar
Relive the good ole’ 60s when you check in at this Glow Bar for one night only.
3. Love Sign
Profess eternal love or make friendship vows with your BFFs under this lovely sign.
4. Giant Flag Erasers
