Despite being a small country, Singapore is the home for many of the biggest music festivals in Asia, some of them include ZoukOut, Baybeats, Laneway, Ultra Singapore, It’s the Ship, and more!
This year, the country is set to debut another new music festival, which is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
The festival is called Noise Invasion Festival and it is set to be held at one of the scariest and most haunting places in Singapore, the Haw Par Villa theme park.

Located along Pasir Panjang Road, the theme park contains over 1,000 statues and 150 giant dioramas depicting scenes from Chinese mythology, folklore, legends, history, and illustrations of various aspects of Confucianism.
But that’s not what makes it scary, one of the attractions at the theme park, the Ten Courts of Hell – which is honestly its best one – features gruesome and gory depictions of Hell in Chinese mythology and Buddhism. (Well, isn’t that nice?)
