We Turn 5... Here's A Rapid Fire Interview With Our Founders

5 YEARS OF SUNSHINE NATION

5 years ago, Sunshine Nation was born to bring extraordinary experiences to the sunny shores of Singapore. This year, we pay tribute to one of our earliest events, The Sail Spin, by celebrating half a decade of Sunshine on the Royal Albatross, a luxury cruise ship that we'll be taking our party to. So join us on our celebratory voyage across the sea!

 
 
 

PARTY ON THE ROYAL ALBATROSS

What's a party without a theme? We're calling all sailors and sailorettes to join our nautical-chic yacht party. Come in blue and white stripes and be ready to set sail from 4-6pm on a cruise across the beautiful Singapore skyline. And once the sun goes down, so will the party. We'll be continuing the celebration with a Dockside Party (still on the ship), where you can buy tickets separately.

And providing tunes for our birthday bash will be our talented DJ friends, Orio from Fat Fish Familia(ISR), Joshua P. from CÉ LA VI Singapore (SIN), DJ Passion (UK), and Chris Deakin (UK).
