Beyond celebrating the nation, National Day weekend is filled with an array of entertainment options for you to get into the patriotic spirit all while jamming out to some toe-tapping tunes. While normally, we'd celebrate National Day together, roaming around Singapore and catching all the gigs we can, this year's festivities look a little different. Nevertheless, the fun still continues!
