Celebrating the winter solstice, Firelight Festival is about community, warmth, art and enjoying the company of your neighbours.
Featuring over 40 free performances a night, from all corners of the globe – from Bollywood dancers to a Mariachi band, and almost everything in between - you'll also be able to indulge in some delicious, smoky, warm fare from some of your favourites, including Limp Briskit, The Soup Factory and Frencheese.
Light up your night as Docklands is taken over by fire. Flame jets, fire drums and nightly fireworks are sure to keep you warm. Also keep an eye out for the new water and light show after dark!
Winter solstice marks a time to harvest, show gratitude and be mindful – to celebrate the gifts of our labour and the company of our community. To eat, drink and rejoice – to bring light to the darkest night.
Many thanks to Firelight Festival partners Development Victoria, Docklands Chamber of Commerce, Foti Fireworks, Oracle Liquid and PRG Australia.
