Then there’s the food. Visitors will get to taste Singaporean cuisine from culinary experts such as Aaron Wong, Malcolm Lee, and Michelin Star-winning Hawker Chan. Local favorites Rangoon Tea House, The Pansodan, and Shwe Sa Bwe will be there as well.

This garden party will also feature live music by acoustic singer-songwriters by day. Once the sun goes down, DJs will take over, including those from Singapore’s Zouk nightclub taking the stage.

The festival has sustainable aims, and organizers vow to make minimal use of plastic. Smoking will not be permitted. 

One day, general admission tickets are now on sale online for MMK15,000-MMK180,000. Organizers say all proceeds will go toward maintenance and restoration of the palace.
