Firelight Festival

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.

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! The fireworks are scheduled to begin around 8:45pm, however this is very much weather dependent and may change. It's recommended you arrive early to enjoy the roving performers, flaming jets, water and light shows, and fire performers.
