It’s not a New Year’s Eve countdown without Mediacorp’s staple event: Let’s Celebrate. You can soak in the lively atmosphere at The Promontory at Marina Bay or catch the event on TV from the comfort of your home. Regardless of how you choose to attend the event, it is free for all. 

This year, expect to jam along to performances by renowned local artists Jasmine Sokko and Iman Fandi. Canadian band Crash Adams and homegrown comedians Kumar and Suhaimi Yusof will also be gracing the stage.

There’s more to just performances at Let’s Celebrate. This year, celebrations also take a virtual turn with their virtual game. Create a free account and avatar which you can then use to virtually tour the concert backstage. The game also comes with quests you can complete which will earn you real-life prizes like bubble tea and Grab vouchers.

If you’d rather vibe to rhythmic Bollywood music than EDM, you’ll find yourself at home at the Bollywood Countdown 2024, happening at the Engage Theatre in Suntec City.

As the name suggests, you’ll party the night away with hits from your fave Bollywood films. But you’ll also get a taste of Bollywood with an included buffet dinner of North Indian delights such as butter chicken and kadhai paneer.

If you can’t decide on a pub to hit up for NYE, do the easy thing and visit multiple in a night. It’s basically the alcoholic version of cafe-hopping. At the 2024 New Year’s Pub Crawl, you’ll head to 4 different watering holes via a party bus, so the party never stops even while in transit. There’ll even be free shots and bubbly as you usher in the new year.

Each stop gains you VIP entry and a free alcoholic beverage. If you’re hankering for more, you’ll get exclusive deals on drinks at each location too.

In addition, the celebration will also feature a massive projection mapping display celebrating the memories and experiences of Tampines residents in 2023. The night ends with dazzling fireworks too, so there’s no need to FOMO if you can’t make it down to Marina Bay or Sentosa.

Take note that while admission is free, the event is ticketed. Priority collection will be given to Tampines residents, but that doesn’t mean non-Easties can’t join in the fun. Just join the queue at the Customer Service Counter after 12pm to get your hands on tickets.

For those of us who prefer dry land, consider heading over to Palawan Green for the Sentosa Countdown Party. Much like the Sentosa Music Fest 2023, it boasts a drone show, live performances, and most importantly, fireworks. There’ll even be an outdoor movie screening happening in the evening before partying and countdown starts.

Get the whole fam down for the event and you’ll get a Family Fiesta ($168/4pax) that includes food like salads, sandwiches, and sushi. Otherwise, if you’re just here for the party and drinks, it’ll be $58/pax with free-flow beer from 5pm-7pm.

There’s no New Year’s Eve party list that would be complete without Clarke Quay. Party central has a bunch of countdowns happening at the best bars and clubs like Zouk, Chupitos, and Cuba Libre.

If you don’t want to be tied down to one place, then head over to Spectrum 2024, the Clarke Quay NYE countdown party. Dance the night away to the spins of YANG Club’s resident DJ Kaylova and tunes of local singer Benjamin Kheng. There’ll even be a live graffiti session at Block B.

Those that need a pic for IG to close off 2023 can also look for the kaleidoscopic backdrop near the River Valley Road taxi stand.
