Welcome 2024 with a bang, literally. Singapore’s largest countdown celebration, the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2024, promises an unforgettable experience for revellers of all ages and backgrounds, with a breathtaking fireworks show, inspiring light projections, and exciting attractions.
Catch spectacular fireworks
Get your cameras ready. The highly anticipated New Year Eve’s fireworks will be launched from a more central location of the Bay, offering more spectators a captivating viewing experience from all around. Produced by the team behind Star Island (the fireworks musical that mesmerised the crowd last year), these fireworks will light up the Bay across three chapters, unfolding at intervals in the hour leading up to midnight.
Choreographed to tell a story of reflection and hope, the fireworks will kick off with a tribute to the past year’s challenges and triumphs, before culminating in a 12-minute grand finale that embraces the future.
Look forward to an immersive experience with fireworks that change colour as they burst and bloom into rings of different colours, accompanied by specially curated music played through speakers around the Bay.
Light up the new year
Besides fireworks, there will be a series of light projection shows presented in partnership with The Majurity Trust, a local philanthropic organisation. From Dec 26 to 31, revellers can feast their eyes on inspiring light projection artworks on the faccades of three Marina Bay landmarks – The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, the Merlion and the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands.
Based on original drawings by talented students from local educational institutions, these light projections depict stories of hope and empowerment in the community and celebrate the spirit of resilience and care for others.
At the Bayfront Event Space, rev up to the new year with an immersive go-kart arena, TurboCharged from Dec 14 to 31, or play with real snow at Ice Magic, Asia’s largest touring pop-up winter playground, from Dec 9 to Jan 21.
Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay will also present Come Together, a series of free performances at the DBS Foundation Outdoor Theatre and Esplanade Concourse happening throughout December, featuring fast-rising musicians from our shores.
And of course, don’t miss Mediacorp’s annual countdown concert, Let’s Celebrate 2024 on New Year’s Eve. Themed “Hit Parade”, this year’s edition features a line-up of performances from home-grown and international acts, food, and carnival games.
