Singapore’s Waterfront Promenade has come alive once again when night falls with dancing fountain jets, colourful visual projections, lasers beamed across the city centre, and mist enshrouding the waters.

Spectra, Marina Bay Sands’ Light & Water Show made its much-anticipated comeback on 28 April after it was suspended in February 2020 due to the pandemic. The light show will now be staged every evening, with two 15-minute-long performances at 8pm and 9pm. Fridays and Saturdays will see a third session at 10pm.

Lasers will shoot out from Marina Bay Sands’ three towers, connecting to a 12m tall prism standing in the water as it sets off water jets, magnificent lights and lava effects.

The outdoor free-to-public show was launched in 2017 that combines lasers, lighting, water effects and projections, set to a soundtrack composed by award-winning local music producer Kenn C. This multimedia display was created to tell the Singapore story from past to present, and a glimpse into its potential future as a global city and beacon of innovation.

“With its stunning multimedia experience colouring the cityscape at night, we look forward to having the show revitalise our waterfront and captivate visitors once again,” said Marina Bay Sands’ COO Paul Town.

Town added that in reflection of Spectra’s hopes of an illuminating future for Singapore, he similarly wishes that the attraction’s “reopening also serves as another promising step forward in our commitment to rejuvenating the integrated resort’s slate of entertainment offerings for both Singaporeans and international visitors.”
