    Last year, 2,500 party-goers had the time of their lives on a 4D3N music festival, set on a Royal Caribbean Ship. This combination of non-stop partying with some of the greatest acts (while aboard the 70,000 tonne Royal Caribbean International Mariner Of The Seas!) is back this year so it’s no wonder tickets are running out fast.

    From 20 – 23 November 2015, fans from around the world will dance away to a string of electronic music legends, both regional and international. This will also include a pitstop at Langkawi for a private beach party. Check out the line-up here:

    And as if it’s not already a one-of-a-kind festival, IT’S THE SHIP 2015 is also gaining its reputation for featuring acts that are not only great at what they do but are sociable people as well.

    “One of the key takeaways from fans who attended last year’s festival was the fact that they not only got to see their favourite acts perform live but they also got to interact with the artistes in person over the duration of the festival. Due to the laid back, vacation-like atmosphere, it is very possible,” explained Iqbal Ameer, Group Chief Executive Officer of The Livescape Group.

     

    The experience on the 15-deck Mariner of The Seas also comes with a casino, 10 pools and whirlpools, 17 bars, clubs and lounges, a duty-free shopping promenade, a full service day spa, an ice skating rink, a mini golf course, a full sized basketball court and a rock climbing wall overlooking the sea.

    Cabins on IT’S THE SHIP 2015 vary in price from USD588 to USD1,288 per person (exclusive of taxes and gratuity fees), but it’s selling out fast so check their website for more details.

    · Tiger Beer Releases Unofficial Official History of Singapore ·

    Have you ever thought about how the Kallang Wave and Chicken Rice was invented? Well, Tiger Beer a brand synonymous with the Singaporean identity and culture, has given this some serious consideration in light of the country’s 50th anniversary. The result was two mockumentaries dubbed the Unofficial Official History of Singapore.

    Kicked off this month, the campaign story goes like this… The ‘Unofficial Official History of Singapore’ was discovered recently, amongst other Tiger Beer relics and artefacts, in an aged and weathered crate in an abandoned pre-war bunker at the foot of Mount Faber by a local urban explorer. The clip presents a curious angle on the backstory behind two of the nation’s most distinct and iconic attributes – the Kallang Wave, and the ever-popular national dish, Chicken Rice. Viewers can watch the short films on Tiger Beer’s website.

    “Tiger Beer has been an intrinsic part of the Singapore identity and culture since its inception in 1932. As we celebrate the nation’s 50th birthday, we want Singaporeans to celebrate another great thing which was born in 1965 – the first Tiger Beer can. With our light-hearted campaign, Tiger aims to inspire Singaporeans to uncage their creativity and think about the origins and backstories behind some of the social peculiarities that have given Singapore its distinctive identity, in a fun way,” said Mr. Rene de Monchy, Head of Marketing, Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore.

    Inspired by the first Tiger Beer can in 1965, the brand will be releasing limited-edition adaptations of the classic 1965 theme in cans, pints and bottles format in commemoration of Singapore’s 50th anniversary.

    Other promotions include:

    – Four specially designed SG50 15-can (330ml) packs which will be available from 16 March 2015 at all major supermarkets and hypermarkets. Each pack (SGD35) comes with a limited edition t-shirt available in four different collectible designs.

    3D_SECONDARY_150105_KL-02_w01
    3D_SECONDARY_150105_KL-01_w01

    – Fans will also receive a limited edition SG50 t-shirt when they purchase a bucket of Tiger pints at SGD50 at all participating bars and outlets.

    – In line with the 1965 theme, consumers can also stand to redeem specially designed vintage analogue watches and vintage pens when they collect the corresponding crown liners from the limited edition SG50 quart bottle (633ml) available at all coffeeshops and hawker centres island-wide.

    Throughout the years, Absolut has collaborated with some of the most recognisable names in the design community. In March, Absolut continues to celebrate the process of creating art with its partnership with SingaPlural. During the opening party on 9 March 2015, Nights by Absolut will present a live art collaboration amongst four artists from various disciplines. This collaboration shines a spotlight on the process of art-making, whereby all four artists will create on the spot, transforming blank canvases of Absolut-shaped bottles into unique works of art. These beautifully designed works will be presented on location throughout the week.

    Nights by Absolut will also include a pop-up bar serving Absolut cocktails. Visitors also have the opportunity to unleash their own artistic creativity on a blank wall. Each day, the most creative design stands to win an Absolut Andy Warhol Limited Edition bottle. Participants can simply take a photo of their finished design, hashtag #NightsByAbsolutSG and share it on their Facebook timeline. The contest runs from 9 March to 15 March. Come experience Nights by Absolut, the art party of the year that brings together art and design communities from all over.
