About

 

Re-imagined for 2024, this globally renowned multisensory phenomenon of light, colour and sound showcases Brisbane’s City Botanic Gardens in a new light, with breath-taking lightworks 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. Wander beneath towering tree canopies illuminated in colour, stroll beneath larger-than-life flowers and through dynamic, glowing tunnels. Discover moments of wonder to share with everyone.

Direct from New York, Chicago and London, Lightscape sells out across the world and is brought to Queensland by award-winning, International trail producers Sony Music Entertainment as part of the Brisbane Festival 2024.

General Admission tickets permit entry to a selected time-slot on a chosen date.
