1. Stay hydrated

We wouldn’t want anyone to faint and miss out on the hot and sizzling line-up halfway through the festival! Remember to bring a bottle of water with you to keep yourself hydrated throughout the night. If you run out of water, there are watercoolers all over Republic Polytechnic for you to refill your bottles! Alternatively, you can grab a drink or two at the IGNITE! Village where food and drinks will be sold.

2. Charge your phones and portable chargers

In this day and age where everyone has a smartphone, it’s a given that many will be snapping pictures and videos of their favourite acts. That’s totally cool, but what isn’t cool is when your smartphone runs out of battery! That’s where tip number two comes along – bring a portable charger! Don’t forget to charge both your smartphone and portable charger before leaving your house so that you can capture every single moment at this year’s IGNITE! Music Festival!

3. Bring a buddy

Being the largest local music festival, do expect IGNITE! to be big and hectic. So do bring along your friend(s) so you will always have someone to go to the toilet with, someone to buy merchandise with and most importantly, someone to fangirl/fanboy with once your favourite act performs! Also, don’t be afraid to interact with the rest of the crowd and who knows, you might go home with more friends than you came with?

4. Dress comfortably

You’re probably racking your brains on what to wear to IGNITE!, right? While looking good can be a priority, dressing comfortable is important as well! Since you will be standing (and maybe dancing around) most of the time, do wear something breathable so you won’t feel so sticky and sweaty. You might also want to bring an extra shirt or towel given Singapore’s hot and humid climate!

Of all the 5 tips, this is the most important tip. Why come to IGNITE! when you’re not here to have fun, right? We’re all about the good local music, so forget all your troubles for a while and soak yourself in the good vibes! Enjoy the performances, grab the yummy grubs and have fun with your friends. You’re now set for the best night of your life!
