Docklands Firelight Festival


  • New Quay Harbour Docklands (map)

Head to Docklands for the Firelight Festival – a three day all ages celebration of winter. 
City of Melbourne’s new festival, Docklands Firelight takes the traditions of the winter solstice to a new level. Creative Director Gill Minervini (Dark Mofo Winter Feast, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras) has pulled together a modern celebration of arts, music, food, fire and fun.
Giant wooden sculptures by artist Christian Patton will be set alight each night with a choreographed fireworks display as the backdrop. Warm up alongside the fire drums or feast on smoked and barbequed foods. Be entertained by roving performers from fire breathers to dancers, drummers and musicians, all adding to the festive and firey atmosphere. 
Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July, 
5pm-9pm every night
