If you’re a music fan, you will be well aware that music festivals are one of the biggest celebrations of music that we have to date. There are a lot of different genres that are celebrated so you may want to go and check out which ones are the best fit for your taste.
In terms of reputation, Coachella often takes the cake as the most well-known music festival. Back in the day, that used to be the Burning Man Festival. This year’s Burning man will be on August 26th so you may want to plot your trips. While both these festivals are western ones, this does not mean that the East doesn’t have their own music festivals. Today, we want to talk about SIFA or Singapore International Festival or Arts.
SIFA is not just a music festival; it is a festival of the arts so there will be massive representation of all types of art. Here are a few things that you can do there for fun:
Catch a Film
One of the highlights of SIFA is the fact that audiences get to view films from different countries. You can catch Singular Screens throughout the entirety of the festival. You can also choose to standby on the 28th to catch “I’ve Got A Little Problem”—a submission by China.
Join a Literary Discussion
Many of us on the writing team are really looking forward to Verses of Love and Life; as well as, 1984. These literary pieces will be up for discourse through the eyes of fans and critics alike. It is always a treat to see a different point of view about a topic that touches the minds of so many.
Watch Poetry in Motion
The Dorrance Dance Company is gracing SIFA this year. They are a dance troupe which will be staging a history of tap dance. If you’re a big fan of choreography and want to also get a chance to pick the mind of a professional dancer, come and join this event.
SIFA 2018 actually starts today and ends on the 12th of May. So you may want to check if you’ll still be able to catch any of the festivities. If not, you have plenty of time to catch next year’s activities. Always remember that preparation is the key to make sure that you get the most out of your SIFA experience.
For those who are going to be able to go this year, here’s a question for you: which weekend or event are you looking forward to the most?
