On top of that, fans can get to immerse themselves in activities ranging from dance performances to fitness at SHINE Festival and GetActive!SG, the other two festivals under the YOUTHx umbrella.
“With Singapore as the ASEAN Chair this year, Singaporean youth are extremely happy and proud to host other ASEAN youth at the YOUTHX Festival weekend, all co-located at the Singapore Sports Hub. Access is complimentary for all, so that our Singaporean and ASEAN youth can participate together to celebrate their aspirations and strengthen the ASEAN identity,” said David Chua, Chief Executive of National Youth Council.
“In the lead-up to Hyperplay, we recognize this is a first of its kind event. We now want to make this an inclusive event to give players and fans from all walks of life a chance to catch all the eSports action and music entertainment. More importantly, while complementing the other components of YOUTHx, we hope to encourage youths to bring along their friends with various interests to come experience and discover what Hyperplay has to offer for everyone,” shared Chris Tran, Regional Manager of Riot Games for Southeast Asia.
