The Padang wasn’t the only place bursting with patriotic pride over the National Day weekend - tens of thousands turned up for two days of festivities at The Meadow at Gardens by the Bay for the first ever National Day Concert on August 10 and 11.

Day 1 saw a multi-cultural medley of performances by winners from Mediacorp’s music reality shows such as Desmond Ng (GeTai Challenge), Jarrell Huang (SPOP Sing!), and Nandhitha Gurunath and Swathi Suresh (Vasantham Star). Legends like Dick Lee and Kit Chan also serenaded crowds with their classic hits, before coming together in the finale for a soulful rendition of the 'Home'.

Then, on Sunday, revellers were treated to performances from next-generation performers such as Jasmine Sokko, Dru Chen, Gen Neo, and Aisyah Aziz.

Other than the performances, there was also a mini carnival leading up to the evening concerts, with activities such as sand art workshops, balloon sculpting, and meet-and-greet sessions with Star Search contestants and cast members of local shows like Fried Rice Paradise and 128 Circle to keep the crowd entertained.

Bummed that you missed the concert? You can catch the highlights of the music extravaganza on August 18, on Channel 5. Day 1 will be aired 7.30pm, followed by Day 2 at 10pm. Both parts will be available on Toggle for catch-up.
