Sentosa Music Fest 2023 Has Beach Parties, Jazz Performances & A Kid-Friendly NYE Countdown

Sentosa Music Fest 2023

Sentosa might be the one spot in Singapore that we locals love as much as the tourists do, perhaps even more. And why not – it’s a huge island with plenty of family-friendly activities and has recently introduced so many new ones. If you haven’t already heard, there’s now an indoor go-karting facility, a new unicorn-themed beach club, and a mini golf course.

To top it all off, Sentosa Music Fest 2023 is happening from now till 3rd January 2024, giving us even more reasons to flock to the island. We’re talking free live jazz performances, countdown parties by the beach, and kid-friendly workshops.

On 25th November, the DJ Spin Off 2023 competition finals will be taking place at Sand Bar on Siloso Beach. 5 finalists will be mixing live for 15 minutes each to impress the judges, in a bid to be crowned the winner. 

For the rest of us music lovers, head down to support the local talents and enjoy the beats by the sea. Admission is free btw.

If you thought the countdown events were limited to party-goers only, here’s a pleasant surprise; there will be a family-friendly party taking place at Palawan Green earlier in the day on 31st December. There will be arcade games, a kids’ foam pool, ball pit, and face painting for the whole fam to hang out at the beach.
