Lightscape

Presented by Brisbane Festival and Sony Music Entertainment

Save

An after-dark wonderland of light, colour and sound.

The site-specific experience of last year's Festival is back and reimagined for 2024. 

This globally renowned, multisensory phenomenon of light, colour and sound showcases Brisbane’s City Botanic Gardens in a new light, with breathtaking installations created by acclaimed local and international artists. 

A special feature of Brisbane’s Lightscape will be two incredible sculptural installations created by Queensland First Nations artists Paul Bong (aka Bindur Bullin) and Michelle Yeatman. 

This one-of-a-kind experience will immerse audience in an inspiring, after-dark journey along a 1.8km trail through the iconic City Botanic gardens. Wander beneath towering tree canopies illuminated in colour, stroll beneath larger-than-life flowers, alongside shining neon roots, and through dynamic glowing tunnels. Discover moments of wonder to share with everyone.

Lightscape is a global phenomenon — Brisbane, don’t miss your chance to be immersed.
