i Light Marina Bay (simplified Chinese: 照亮滨海湾) is Asia’s first and only sustainable light art festival held in the Marina Bay district of Singapore. The festival is organised and presented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) with festival direction by Smart Light Singapore (SLS).

i Light was first held in 2010 and the festival was officiated by Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean on 15 October 2010. Following its success, a second edition was held in 2012.

The ‘i’ in the name alludes to the festival’s innovative content, the intelligent use of lighting as well as its international line-up of creative talent. It is also an invitation to everyone to get involved in this free outdoor celebration of creativity in a new community space.Millwall Inner Dock, or as the new local residents call it, 'Baltimore Wharf'…i'm sorry chaps, i'll always know this small piece of London's old docks as the former, I'm not against progress but lets at least keep a tiny part untouched…as in the name, whatever next!!
