Santos GLNG City of Lights

Prepare to be moved and mesmerised by a sensational, brand new, light, laser, and special effects show at South Bank’s Cultural Forecourt.

This nightly free show by internationally acclaimed creative director Tony Assness, lighting designer John Rayment and water and laser designer Glenn Turner has a dynamic soundtrack, cascading water and an exciting new live performance element.

Melbourne-based collective Strange Fruit is set to captivate audiences, performing surreal dance and circus feats from the Santos GLNG City of Lights barge as part of this year’s sensational new show.

Strange Fruit’s intricate act will be performed on a glittering backdrop of monumental structures, effervescent water features, colourful lasers and rooftop searchlights.

Don’t miss the chance to see the city skyline and river explode in a visual celebration of pure grandeur.

If you are watching from your own vantage point, tune into 95.3FM for the Santos GLNG City of Lights narrowcast (CBD precinct only).

Santos GLNG City of Lights is a family friendly event.
