YOUTHx Singapore Sports Hub, 4 & 5 August 2018
Weekend dates with girlfriends often involve figuring where to eat or shop. But this August, there will be activities lined up for even the laziest Singaporean girl with a S$10 budget.
The festivals will cover music, fitness, food, shopping, and esports, to cater to all interests and lifestyles.
Maybe you’ll find a new favourite song when you watch local artists perform at the free concerts, or pick up a new sport such as bouldering or abseiling. Who knows, you might even swipe right on a cutie IRL. But, you didn’t hear that from us.
To save you time from filtering through the line-up, we shortlisted highlights you should check out with your girlfriends, so you won’t have any excuse to sleep your weekend away.
Bonus: If you’re between 15 and 35 years old, check out the list of exclusive deals below.
