Here is the full statement from the LTA:

Want to reminisce golden melodies from the 60s at Chinatown, take part in the disco fever at Telok Ayer, revel in the era of music videos from the 80s and 90s at Downtown and dance to K-Pop music at Bugis? The Land Transport Authority (LTA) invites the public to visit the new Downtown Line 1 (DTL1) stations on Saturday 7 December! In addition to celebrating "Music Through The Years", the Open House event will give the public the opportunity to have a sneak preview of the completed stations before passenger service commences on Sunday 22 December.

From 10am to 6pm, the public can look forward to an entertaining and fun-filled day with music and activities from the eras of 1960s to 2000 and beyond at four DTL stations - Bugis, Downtown, Telok Ayer and Chinatown. Unlimited free rides along the DTL1 stations will be provided throughout the duration of the Open House for the public to explore and view the different architectural details such as the Art-in-Transit artworks in the new stations.

DTL1 features six MRT stations, Bugis, Promenade, Bayfront, Downtown, Telok Ayer and Chinatown. It is connected to the existing East-West, Circle and North East Lines with four interchange stations. To get to the Open House, the public can enter DTL1 via any of the stations except Bayfront station. Bayfront station is not included as part of the programme as it shares the same platform as the Circle Line's Bayfront station that is currently in operation. Please refer to Annex A for more details of the Open House .
