Party On Singapore Rooftops
Our fine country may be known to some as conservative and even a little boring, but when the day is done and it’s time to let our hair down, boy do we know how to party!
This list of Singapore’s 10 best rooftop parties will prove all those naysayers wrong. From outdoor playgrounds to world class DJs to massive flea markets, this list shows that we Singaporeans know how to party it up sky-high.
1. Magnum Infinity Playground @ Esplanade
This was a dream come true for every adult – a Magnum Infinity Playground specially designed for them! Party-goers had a ball of a time at the Esplanade’s rooftop, zipping down neon rimmed slides and swinging on giant illuminated swings.
As if a neon playground isn’t enough, there was a free flow of Magnum Infinity ice-cream and desserts like magnum-inspired crème brulee. This rooftop party was an adult wonderland in the heart of the city.
When: Magnum Infinity Playground was a one-off event. Magnum hosts themed parties quite frequently, especially with the launch of new flavours, so do keep your eyes peeled for them!
2. V⁷ @ KU DÉ TA
The 7th edition of the V series of parties hosted by KU DÉ TA and Grey Goose, V⁷ featured 3 world famous DJs who’ve spun for the likes of J-Lo and Mick Jagger.
Guest DJs Gregor Salto from the Netherlands, DJ Spinbad from the USA and Stéphane Pompougnac from France gave party-goers an amazing night, delivering a wide range of sick beats and groovy tunes. The best part was that the crowd partied it up at the exclusive KU DÉ TA club lounge, right at the very top of Marina Bay Sands!

The crowd at LOOF had an unforgettable night grooving to the infectious beats of composer/remixer/producer RAC. Having remixed for big names like U2 and Foster the People, RAC did not disappoint the fans and music lovers present.
With RAC’s catchy indie-pop and electro tunes, a fun-loving crowd, and a beautiful urban garden setting atop Odeon Towers, RAC @ LOOF makes the cut as one of the best rooftop parties in Singapore.

The Carnival of Brazil has found a place among the clouds in Singapore, at the top of 1-Altitude @ 1 Raffles Place.
This F1 party was a cut above the rest with its Rio style celebration. Brazilian drummers, belly dancers, LED stilt walkers, and men in racer suits partied with the crowd as they revelled in the music, indulged in the drinks, and caught up with the action on the race tracks 272m below.

Guest musician Donisha Prendergast, granddaughter of the legendary Bob Marley, gave revellers an unforgettable night with her feel-good reggae tunes. With great music, a laidback crowd, Caribbean-inspired food and drinks and a perfect view of the sunset, positive vibrations were hitting the roof on that breezy night.

With a whole range of music genres like Hip-hop, R&B, EDM and Trance to groove to, it must have been a fun-filled night of merrymaking and partying in the urban jungle.

Accompanied with a sumptuous buffet, wine and champagne, and a gorgeous view of the Marina Bay waterfront, it was surely a night to remember.

This mini music festival held on the rooftop of People’s Park Complex blended local music of Singapore’s past with electronic tunes of the present.
