Thaipusam is generally celebrated in Singapore with lots of dancing and music to boost the morale of devotees. However, this year, no recorded music playing is allowed, no sounding gongs or drums, no shouting, no paint and much more. See the Straits Times article Thaipusam set to turn down volume.

This has caused some stir with Minister Shanmugam coming forward to clarify that there were no such new rules (CNA or Straits Times) on playing music or banging gongs.
