FuckUp Nights Singapore #21: Candid stories of failures by entrepreneurs


Fuckup Nights is a global movement to share business failure stories in a candid way -- to destigmatize and explore the tough moments, to create a more solid foundation for innovation.

The Format: 4 entrepreneurs share their stories of failures - each speaker shares their story with just 10 images. Then, you ask them questions: ask anything you’re curious about, that would add value to your night. Don’t hold back! The speaker will decide whether or not to answer.

Entry is free, RSVP here /// For more info on the speakers, check out their Facebook group


The Council Anniversary: Secret Factory Rave


This is not a drill. Temperatures are down to 0ºC, so we recommend you put on your long johns, a warm jacket, and your best dancing shoes as we celebrate the friendships, both old & new, that have been forged & strengthened over the past two years. All these memories we've created together... be it at a warehouse, up on a rooftop, or on a hazy night out at Headquarters.

The party will span across two rooms, both equally cold but each designed to offer a different experience. Your favourite local selectors will be dishing out the finest house, disco, and techno that will set a fire in your hearts as you dance the night away.

All you house heads and disco fans will feel right at home as Asia's best-kept secret Jonathan Kusuma team up with groove master Ulysses to take charge of one room, putting on the kaleidoscopic tunes and cosmic grooves to leave your hearts soaring. For those seeking the deep, dark & dirty, our #TechnoWonderBoy Julien BrochardDEEN & our feisty feline CATS ON CRACK have got you covered with their uncompromising cuts of hard-hitting techno that makes for a feet-stomping good time. 

The night is set up to be more massive than any party they've ever done, so grab your coats and join us for a night that will settle in your memory and hold fast in your heart.

Tickets are now at $45, $55 at the door /// Facebook event page
