Asia’s largest wellness event, Glow Festival, will return to Singapore in 2023. 

Supported by the Singapore Tourism Board and Marina Bay Sands, this second edition of the festival will run from Feb 4 to 12 at the Marina Bay Sands. It aims to promote urban wellness and cater to people’s new well-being needs after the pandemic. 

We want to inspire festivalgoers to adopt new practices to live happier and healthier lives and present them with a truly unique opportunity to unwind,” said Martin Capstick, Chief Executive of Exceed Sports and Entertainment and the founder of Glow Festival.

Exclusive curated workshops

The workshops will be designed for the festival by international celebrity instructors and wellness experts.

These include Tara Stiles, co-founder of Strala yoga which is now practiced in over 100 countries, and Amanda Bisk, a qualified exercise physiologist, personal trainer, elite athletics coach, gymnastics coach, yoga and Pilates instructor.

The workshops will be held in Glow Festival 2023’s multi-sensory studio. Created by Kingsmen, it will immerse participants in the sounds, smells, and sights of the natural world.

Complete challenges on Glow App to win cash prizes

Festival participants will have access to the Glow App from Jan 1 to Feb 12, 2023, where they can complete fitness challenges across the island. 

The app will feature an interactive narrative experience titled ‘LightEarn’, and is designed to create a deeper connection between exercise and mental health. 

Participants stand a chance to win up to $25,000 in cash and other prizes. 

To promote the theme of mental health, the app will be fundraising for Community Chest, with 100 per cent of funds raised given to the Samaritans of Singapore supported by the Singapore Tourism Board and Marina Bay Sands.

Ending off the festival with a party

Other than a selection of delicious menu items at some of Marina Bay Sands’ restaurants, there will also be a closing party at MARQUEE Singapore, one of Asia’s top nightlife venues.
