SEA Games: Stunning closing ceremony in store, medals unveiled

Local and international artistes will team up for the SEA Games closing ceremony on June 16 as the the Singapore SEA Games Organising Committee (Singsoc) revealed its plans on Monday for the Games finale.

Dutch DJ Ferry Corsten and local acts Tay Kewei, The Sam Willows and The Steve McQueens are some of the artistes who will perform at the National Stadium.

Singsoc also unveiled the medals for the biennial meet, where a total of 1,327 medals across 402 events from 36 sports are there to be won. The medals, measuring 80mm in diameter and weighing 183g each, are designed by Joys Tan, a designer from national sports agency Sport Singapore.

Spectators at the closing ceremony will also receive a commemorative supporter's medallion, which can be found in their funpack.

Singsoc's creative director for show-opening and closing ceremony Beatrice Chia-Richmond said: "The 28th SEA Games will be a time to not just profile the achievements and efforts of our homegrown athletes, but to celebrate the new stories and relationships forged through the Games with our friends from the region.

"Aside from being a visually stunning ceremony, the audience can expect elements of a great party - great music in the form of a mini concert and also exclusive performances by leading global DJ Ferry Corsten."

A special collection of stamps, dubbed the 28th SEA Games stamps, will go on sale from June 5.
