GLOW 2018 9TH–11TH AUG

GLOW 2018

Illuminate your senses and experience GLOW

GLOW is a three-night festival of light that will transform HOTA precinct into an enchanted illuminated setting. Featuring performances above and around, music, playful and immersive installations, culinary delights and more.

As night falls see the lakeside turn into a canvas of sparkling Fractured Light presented by Gold Coast Waterways Authority. Watch it change through the evening with a soundtrack to match.

Enjoy the amazing Light Sphere, an installation of mirrored discs which reflect and spherically distorts the world of curious activity going on around it.

Experience Quadra, a custom-built, walk through experience of sound and laser beams converging into planes and fields of light by internationally celebrated audiovisual artist Robin Fox (Dark MOFO Festival, Sonica, Vivid Sydney).

Catch Heliosphere by internationally renowned company Dream Engine (UK). Watch in awe as an acrobat suspended beneath a helium balloon spirals and spins, seemingly weightless, exploring the uncharted space between you, the tops of the trees and buildings across the precinct.

As night falls, light explodes from Enlighten – The CUBE, a stunningly beautiful, transparent venue where three angels inhabit the space, bridging the gap between the divine and the mortal to create an ethereal world that is profound, joyful, poetic and playful.

See Melbourne based international artist Carla O’Brien’s incredibly popular interactive neon art installations including her signature piece Neon Angel Wings, Baby Wings and her newest installation Neon Dog Park.

Make sure you dress in style for GLOW, think black light and fractured light – add yourself to the myriad of moving lights with your own 2018 Glow style.

There will be lots of surprises over the three days including neon face painting. And don’t miss out on Dancing on the Green and loads of food to be enjoyed under the stars. There may also be a special appearance from the White Whale, the inflatable art that wowed crowds at GC2018 opening ceremony.

This event is FREE to attend.
