Lights and music transform the iconic Supertrees at the Gardens by the Bay light show, Garden Rhapsody. This visual extravaganza brings a touch of sparkle to the towering structures, dressing them up in colours and bathed in music.
Here are some things you should about the Gardens by the Bay light show in 2020.
Gardens by the Bay Light Show Timing
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Garden Rhapsody came on twice every evening. The first show would take place at 7.45 pm and the second show at 8.45 pm.
However, during the current Phase 2 Safe Reopening period, Gardens by the Bay has adjusted the light show timings. Instead of the usual two shows, the Supertree lights will be turned on with continuous light background music from 7 pm to 10 pm.

The light show is free – no tickets are required. Visitors need to just show up at Gardens by the Bay’s Supertree Grove and enjoy the lights and music.
In 2020, remember to keep a safe distance from others!
Where to View the Light Show
Garden Rhapsody takes place at the Supertree Grove.
In the past, there are three possible spots from which you can watch the Gardens by the Bay Light Show.
The first is from the fringes of Supertree Grove. This way, you can get an overview of the trees as they light up.
The next possible spot to watch Gardens Rhapsody is directly under the Supertrees. This places you in the midst of the lights and music.
You will find yourself cranking up your necks to watch the display of lights all around you. You may even find some people lying flat on their backs to look straight up at the lights.
The last viewing spot, and possibly the most epic, is from the OCBC Skywalk. You will have to buy a ticket beforehand to take an elevator up the Supertree to the Skywalk ahead of the showtime.
Now, with the revamped version of the light show, you can simply enjoy the lights and sounds under the Supertrees with a leisurely evening walk any time between 7 pm to 10 pm.
How Long is the Gardens by the Bay Light Show?
Previously, Garden Rhapsody, the Gardens by the Bay Light Show lasts for around 15 minutes. Now, you can enjoy the lights at the Supertree during the three-hour stretch from 7 pm to 10 pm in the evening.
During special occasions, special editions of Garden Rhapsody are commissioned. In the past, there have been special Garden Rhapsody editions created with a Star Wars theme (known as Saber Trees) and with a Christmas theme.
In November and December, there is usually a special Christmas Edition of Garden Rhapsody in conjunction with Christmas Wonderland.
It is still to be seen if these special edition light shows will still carry on in 2020.
