Inspired by the beloved Taiwanese night market, online visitors will be treated with iconic food, products and games at Digital Shilin Singapore, happening over two weekends in June 2020.

 

Welcome to Digital Shilin Singapore 2020! Bringing the fun online. You’ll be able to enjoy homegrown and regional creative stakeholders such as micro retailers, quirky F&B brands, budding entertainment artistes from the comforts of your own home.

The same fun as last year, digitalised to be one with technology. With new elements like live-streaming in entertainment, social shopping and online games, Digital Shilin Singapore 2020 is out to take over the Internet! Join Digital Shilin Singapore 2020 to empower local businesses and rebuild the scene to change the landscape of digital events.

This year, the completely online festival brings together myriad vendors for a multi-sensorial experience for festival-goers. The innovative digital concept also champions local businesses and artisans by providing them with an alternative platform to generate revenue, while bringing a sense of fun and community during COVID-19.

Expect four online interactive zones — Eat, Shop, Play and Fun — featuring close to 100 local and regional digital pop-up stores. They will be home to an array of captivating performances and entertaining shows, live streams of delicious food and drinks, delivered straight to consumers’ homes, and engaging virtual hangouts.

From cult favourites and under-the-radar artisans to established celebrities and local buskers, there is plenty to experience including easy-to-follow cooking segments, signature delectables to sample and crowd participation in hilarious variety shows.

 

(Eat) — A plethora of traditional and creative Asian flavours

This year’s delectable F&B line-up combines the best of Taiwanese flavours, local favourites and trending fusion dishes that are cooked-to-order for delivery.

Many vendors are also offering Shilin Singapore-exclusive menu items, as well as their signature dishes on dedicated live streams, which include cooking shows.

Customers can tuck into moreish and umami bowls of luxurious truffle lu rou fan from D’bun, or snack on Taiwanese pastries from Chia Te Bakery and Yu Jan Shin fulfilled by iCarry, paired with refreshing teas by Playmade.

Other highlights include East-meets-West casual dining outfit The Masses’ decadent Iberico Pork Lu Rou Fan and Truffle Roast Pork Buns, as well as famed Korean-American-inspired joint Egg Stop’s spicy Mala Chicken Sandwich.

 

(Shop) — There’s no need to shop ‘til you drop with doorstep deliveries

A staple of night markets, shopping is an integral part of the convivial festival atmosphere. This year’s edition harnesses the power of online shopping and real-time auction-style live streams that allow festival-goers to buy souvenirs by famed brands and handcrafted artisanal wares from various vendors.

In close partnership with Shopee — the Official Lifestyle Partner — Digital Shilin Singapore seeks to bring festival-goers a curated selection of homegrown brands. Customers will be directed to Shopee’s e-commerce platform or mobile application to place all local retail orders.

To help those in need, homegrown artisanal perfume label, Scent by Six will be selling special Care Packs that include a hand sanitiser, effervescent Vitamin C, and face masks.

10 percent of proceeds from these packs will be donated to The Courage Fund, a relief scheme that helps individuals and families who struggle with caregiving duties and obtaining essential items during the pandemic.

 

(Play) — Feel a sense of nostalgia through fun games and challenges

Bringing a sense of whimsy and fun to the festival is the Play area, where people are able to try their hand at various digital games and stand a chance to win prizes, participate in fun social media challenges and tasks, and even play around with special filters created for Digital Shilin Singapore.

There will also be plenty of entertainment hosted by GOMO by Singtel – the Official Digital Mobile Partner – to complete the immersive experience. Guests can try their hand at GOMO’s “Stack-A-Mo” game, where the aim is to stack as many boxes in line as possible, and vie for a place in the Top Three to win exclusive prizes and vouchers.

 

(Fun) — Musical performances, comedy acts and everything in between

In addition to the myriad activities available on Digital Shilin Singapore’s platform, the festival will feature a main stage hosted by Lee Teng (Mediacorp artiste managed by Left Profile) with performances by local bands and singers including Cha Ban Sheng (插班生), Nat Wu, Yokez, Marcus Lee and Jay - CIRCO. Taiwanese singer, Caryson 黃譽韶, will also be doing a special set on 12-14 June at 7pm.

Festival attendees can also tune in to shows like “The Dumb and Dumber” by SGAG, where Brightman and D-Jin will embark on a series of wacky hijinks and document their reactions, and be entertained by the “Fill Your Guts” segment, co-created with GOMO, where special guests will taste test exotic bubble tea combinations inspired by user-nominated GOMO Characters.

 

Digital Shilin Singapore will open from 3-11pm on 12 June 2020 and 12-11pm on 13-14 and 19-21 June 2020.
