You finally get to write wishes on lanterns and let them fly at Singapore’s first ever sky lantern music festival in February 2024

by June Ngooi

What better way to start the fresh year and get into the good vibes by writing your wishes on a lantern and releasing them into the sky?

Releasing sky lanterns has always been a symbol of peace and good fortune, and now you don’t have to go all the way to Taiwan or Thailand to do so!

Held in Palawan Green at Sentosa, you can start the fun and games early at 3pm and secure a good spot to chope with your mats so that you can have a clear view of where the festivities will take place! 

Since it is the afternoon, I gather it might get a little hot and due to the unpredictable weather recently, I would also bring raincoats and umbrellas just in case.

We’re all in suspense at the moment regarding the line-up of the musical artists so stay tuned for updates, but what we do know is that there will be musical acts ranging from House, EDM, R&B, Pop & Rock genres so there’s something for everyone! 

Oh, and did I mention that there will also be a guest celebrity DJ, and cultural performances from surprise guests? 

It already sounds so lit, and that’s not the only thing that will be.

The actual lantern release will happen at 7.30pm in the evening, so we get to see how pretty the night sky will be lit by these floating lanterns.

All you Disney fans will finally have your Tangled moment, including me!

You can be rest assured of environmental hazards though, as the sky lanterns are not really going to be floating up into the sky.

They will be tethered to the ground with a 60-metre bamboo string attached to them, suspended in the air between five to ten minutes before returning to the ground where you can just pick it up. 

What’s more, the sky lanterns are made of oiled rice paper that are biodegradable. See, fuss-free and environmentally-friendly! 

What’s a party without food, amirite?

There will be food, snacks, and drinks at the venue as outside food and drinks are not allowed, so keep a lookout for further updates as the date draws nearer. 

And for the party-goers, there will be an after party from 10pm to 12am so if you aren’t too eager to head home, why not dance the rest of the night away?

So, what are you waiting for? Gather your friends and family for this unforgettable experience!
