300 Unmanned Drones Among the Firsts Expected for This Year’s NDP Show

SINGAPORE — A series of firsts will feature in the show element of this year’s National Day Parade (NDP), among them a display of 300 unmanned drones, the largest in South-east Asia, and an aerial system which can elevate performers and props 20 metres off the stage floor.

Although no details were shared on the drone display, last month, 50 Intel drones lit up the skies in a three-minute performance in front of the Marina Bay Promontory at the DBS Marina Regatta, giving the public a sneak peek of what it might be like.

The NDP organisers said more details on the drone display will be revealed at a later date.

On Thursday (July 6), the organisers announced that over 3,000 performers and 38 artistes will be performing at NDP 2017, which will be held at the Marina Bay Floating Platform.

The show will comprise of six acts representing different issues close to people’s hearts, such as families and the unity and diversity of Singapore’s multiracial society. It will also feature moments designed to engage and interact with the audience. For example, mosquito puppets will move through the audience to the stage, and the audience will be involved in a clap choreography symbolising the collective effort needed to eliminate the mosquito threat.
