Thailand’s most famous festival, Songkran, is making a splash in Singapore this April! This water festival marks the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year, so look forward to dazzling water and lighting effects and good music. Oh, and lots of water.

Xing Xing is a 34-year-old Singaporean who's looking for a boyfriend online. She finally found one but things didn't turn out the way she'd have expected. Watch her heartbreaking story here:

Some of the notable acts include Dutch DJ Quintino, INQUISITIVE, LeNERD, Lincey and TINC. As with any festival, expect a range of beers (from The Bar by Beerfest Asia) and festival food (featuring Thai fusion food from Sawadeecup).

You have to be appropriately dressed to party in the water, so whip out your trunks and bikinis for a splashing good time!
