The Youth Day public holiday might’ve been short-lived, but the fun and festivities have only just begun. National Youth Council (NYC) is ramping up the fun this July and August with YOUTHx – an initiative that celebrates youths, their aspirations, and their contribution to society. 

This 4th – 5th August 2018, YOUTHx is bringing you 3 festivals – Hyperplay, SHINE Festival and GetActive! Singapore – with an epic line-up of live music, dance, Esport action and more. Not to mention exclusive youth perks from over 30 retail partners for the entire month of July. 

Here are some highlights you can expect:


Singapore’s first ASEAN Esports x Music Festival 


Hyperplay marries the best of esport and music in this 2-day festival of cosplay, stage dives, live music and a whole lot of intense League of Legends (LoL) action.

It doesn’t matter if you’re veteran or a complete newbie with no knowledge of LoL at all, the Hyperplay tournament stage welcomes all spectators. For the first time in gaming history, you’ll be able to watch all 10 ASEAN teams battle for the crown and regional glory.

Before you strike this event out as a total geek fest, their tie-up with MTV Spotlight punctuates the intensity with class acts from international artistes like Nick Jonas and Alessia Cara. 

You’ll also be treated to the tunes of ex-2NE1 mega babe, CL, along with The Sam Willows, Indonesia’s Afghan, and Thailand’s Slot Machine. Check out Hyperplay’s full musical lineup here.

Note: There will be 1,000 free Hyperplay passes being given out on the website here from 23 July, 12pm – ready your fingers!

Join in the YOUTHx Celebrations this July


In the same way the YOUTHx programme celebrates dynamism, the celebrations for the month of July end on a high note with 2 more festivals happening in addition to Hyperplay: the annual SHINE Festival and GetActive! Singapore. 

From sports and gaming to music and dance, each festival symbolises the varied passions of youths in a bid to encourage every individual to embark on a journey of self-discovery and embrace the freedom to dream big.

The 13th edition of SHINE Festival (we covered last year’s here) will bring forth carnival games, a food village and craft market, along with live performances from local talent like Sezairi, Charlie Lim, Yung Raja, and Faris Jabba. 

Alternatively, at GetActive! Singapore, you can get your sweat on with activities such as Parkour, Futsal, Crossfit, and even a pillow fight. Whether your allegiance lies with sports, music, art or dance; just know this – YOUTHx will give you something to celebrate in the upcoming months.
