Singapore’s premier open-air cinema event only happens once a year, and it’s almost upon us! Films At The Fort presented by Casillero del Diablo satiates that longing for a European summer and combines award-winning films with gourmet food and wine in the beautiful setting of Fort Canning Park.

This open-air cinema is one of the must-do annual events in Singapore and is the perfect place to unwind with friends with a glass of vino and a picnic before catching an award-winning film under the stars.

Tickets $28.90. Book here


FRIDAY 3 AUGUST @ INTERMISSION BAR

Artifacts feat. Intriguant x Funk Bast*rd

'Artifacts' is essentially a night catered to musical diversity and exploration. Inspired by the culture of listening and appreciation in outlets like Brilliant Corners and Spiritland in London, it's about sharing the spectrum of music that would otherwise be rarely heard in a traditional club setting. Seamless mixing is secondary and selection is the key ingredient of the night. 

And for this edition, we have one of SG's brightest artists Intriguant, who has been extremely active the past few years releasing his own music and playing in numerous key shows around the region.
