The best part is that their rehearsal sessions are free, so you can head down to watch the show if you’re in the area.

Sanrio fans can even catch DJ Hello Kitty in action, spinning music for the actual show.

Due to the pandemic, STAR ISLAND was unable to host the show for two years. While its comeback will no doubt be glorious, it will also be the last time the show will happen at The Float @ Marina Bay, before its redevelopment into the NS Square.

Similar to previous iterations, the STAR ISLAND Singapore Countdown 2022-2023 is set to be an 80-minute fireworks musical hailing all the way from Japan.

This year, the show includes ‘Ghost Shell Effect’ fireworks, specially created to burst in Singapore’s red and white colours.

Sanrio lovers will be delighted to hear that DJ Hello Kitty will be making her appearance at the event.

That’s not all — there will also be limited edition merchandise for sale, as part of the collaboration between new sponsors Sanrio and Star Island.

Of course, such festivities aren’t complete without some drinks. To truly let loose and usher in the new year, visitors can get drinks at a wine pop-up.

Rehearsals for Marina Bay fireworks show are free of charge

Considering how extravagant the event will be, the fairly hefty ticket prices aren’t surprising.

On STAR ISLAND’s website, passes for the VVIP suite start from a whopping S$6,888 for a group of 6. On the other hand, Category 6 tickets start from S$88.

Thankfully, there’s also a ‘Prequel to STAR ISLAND’ event that’s free for the public to view.
