The inaugural BIG CITY LIGHTS in 2022 is a mesmerising, four-night festival of light, live music, colour and creativity. The cutting-edge program features immersive audio-visual experiences, large-scale digital works, 3D-mapping and unexpected projection sites that will transform our everyday urban spaces.

Stumble upon this free-for-everyone, public night-time exhibition as building facades, laneways and our iconic waterfronts are transformed into hypnotic and technicolour displays by leading local and national artists working across light, installation, architecture and digital design.

A beacon of inclusivity, BIG CITY LIGHTS removes the proverbial gallery walls, revitalising site-specific outdoor spaces into places to play, create and converse with our contemporary urban landscape, all the while celebrating the joys of a collective experience – something once taken for granted.

Coupled with an eclectic line-up of live musical performances, the festival will deliver a diverse soundscape that celebrates the city’s vibrant nightlife and live-music scene.

An opportunity for visitors to experience our city through a new lens and for locals of all-ages to rediscover often overlooked after-dark precincts. Be spellbound by innovation, scale and Instagram-able moments where creativity and technology collide.

Inquisitiveness is encouraged – stay up to date via our e-news.
