Big City Lights

Get set for a winter you won’t forget! The Gold Coast is set to dazzle during Big City Lights, a unique festival that transforms the everyday into the extraordinary. Running from 21st June to 7th July 2024, this festival is a celebration of creativity, community, and the magic of light.

Experience the thrill of immersive audio-visual installations that transform the cityscape, and discover large-scale digital works that push the boundaries of art and technology. Don’t miss the chance to see the city in a new light with 3D mapping turning familiar streets into canvases of colour and light.

But that’s not all! Enjoy a soundtrack to your exploration with live music and performances lighting up the city. Get set for surprises around every corner, with the city’s hidden gems and known streets bathed in technicolour projections.

Big City Lights is a family-friendly event that’s free to all, making it the perfect outing for folks of all ages. Prepare yourself for a visual feast that’s perfect for capturing those Instagram-worthy moments!

We’re proud to showcase the talents of leading artists in light, installation, architecture, and digital design. Come and witness their creativity as they transform Southport into a living, breathing work of art.

Remember, this event is a South East Queensland exclusive. So, mark your calendars for Big City Lights and prepare for an unforgettable experience. Let’s illuminate this winter together!
