*Carnival game prizes to be won!
It all began one Friday night in May in 2013, within an industrial building on Kampong Bugis road, when the spontaneous desire to bring good vibes, good people and good tunes together birthed the first ever After Dark pop-up party. The unexpected turnout at its first conception buzzed with so much energy that it fuelled the drive to create subsequent After Dark pop-ups. With its home base at Kilo Lounge, After Dark soon left its mark at several other locations around the island, amassing a steady following in the process. It’s music-centric essence soon evolved to merge other concepts such as art and food to elevate the experience of the After Dark events for their followers, and thus After Dawn emerged as its daytime incarnation.
Time: 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Location: 66 Kampong Bugis #01-01 Singapore 338987
