By Nur Amirah Bte Azman, Year 3, School of Management and Communication

While IGNITE! is known for being a music festival that features awesome local bands live, that is not the only thing we offer. We have various other activities you and your friends can take part in. So, aside from jamming out to your favourite bands live at IGNITE!, here are some things you can do too.

1. Shop at the Festival Village


Want to treat yourself to something? Then IGNITE! Village is the perfect place for you to go to. We have various vendors for you to check out and you will definitely be able to find something you would like.

We have awesome vendors coming in. Check it out below!


With nine different food and beverage vendors, you will have different options to choose from. Getting thirsty? Get yourself a refreshing drink at Brew Up! or Red Bull. If you’re hungry, we have 21 Sliders that sells good old burgers. If you’re craving for some potatoes, The 6ixs Rosti and The Daily Menu Co are the places go. Or maybe in the mood for some tacos? Fed By The Ravens will definitely satisfy.

2. Minute to Win it Games

Music is not the only entertainment we have! Our #IGNITEBESTCREWEVER will be walking around with mini-games for you to play. And of course, there are prizes to be won! Interested? Here are the three mini-games we will be having.

Junk in the Trunk
How to play it: Strap the tissue box onto the player’s back and fill it with 8 ping pong balls. Shake and dance around until all the balls have fallen out of the tissue box. No using your hands and no laying down.

Cotton Ball Challenge
How to play it: Players have to use a chopstick to pick a cotton ball and drop it into the bowl which will be placed on their heads. More cotton balls in the bowl after 1 minute, the more rewards are given.

Wrap it Up
How to play it: One player must wrap another in IGNITE! tapes. The first player to get their entire body wrapped with IGNITE! tapes is the winner.

The winners of these games will walk away with a Picnic Mat sponsored by Spark Connections. Nothing like a Picnic Mat to top your Festival experience and laze on our Lawn.

3. Photo booth(s)


One thing you must do during IGNITE! is take a picture (or a video) to remind yourself of the good times you had. And we have the props you need to show your friends that you are at IGNITE!  

There will be a roving photobooth where our Guerrilla marketing team will be walking around with a small prop so that you and your friends can take a picture on the spot. There will also be Dollop photobooth in Peanut Butter where you can take a picture and have it printed out for $2!
