It appears we’re going to have a NightFest.
The first I heard of it was a media release from the industrious Andrew Barr.
Some snooping has unearthed a page on TAMS’ website:
- Get swept up in the magic of Floriade NightFest during five special night openings, when Floriade transforms into a night-time spectacular! You’ll be entranced by the twinkling fairy lights, floodlit flower beds, and glowing lanterns.
Watch the outdoor film screenings, enjoy a drink or two at the stylish NightFest Glow Bar, hunt for treasures at the bustling night markets, indulge in local gourmet food and wine, enjoy great live music and take the kids on a night-time adventure they won’t forget.
The program of films changes every night and each night climaxes with a stunning performance by Strange Fruit. This choreographed performance is conducted 4 metres above the ground atop flexible metal poles, featuring glowing spheres, extraordinary characters and projected sound and images that will take your breath away.
