i Light Marina Bay (Chinese: 照亮滨海湾) is a sustainable light art festival held in the Marina Bay, Singapore. The festival is organised and presented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA).
i Light Marina Bay was first held in 2010 and the festival was officiated by Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean on 15 October 2010. Following its success, a second edition was held in 2012 and a third edition was held in 2014. The 2016 festival, themed "In Praise of Shadows" (named after an essay by Junichiro Tanizaki), takes place from 4 to 27 March. The event now takes place annually.
The ‘i’ in the name is said to allude to the festival’s innovative content, the intelligent use of lighting as well as its international line-up of creative talent.
In 2019, the festival was renamed i Light Singapore as an anchor event to commemorate the Singapore Bicentennial.

  • An amazing sound and light show in the water. About 20 to 30 minutes, but you are like hypnotized, so beautiful forms of water, lighted and additionally figures are projected into it. One of the absolute musts when in Singapore. Held in the late evening. Go good 30 minutes before, in order to take a front seat. Free.
  • Find a spot about 30 -45 mins before the show if you want a good view. Best location to see it is from the event plaza area. Can also be enjoyed from a river cruise or marina bay sands sky deck or neighbouring hotels. Shows are free and are 8pm and 9pm most days.
