An award winning Kaleidoscope for all ages
A free festival of light, art, music and food sure to spark your imagination.
Western Australia’s very own world-class light and illumination event, Kaleidoscope Festival, is back for its second year running! Light shows, art, installations, music and food will be abundant at the 3-day festival, transforming the Joondalup City Centre into a “living, breathing entertainment hub”. The free event is an opportunity to experience thought provoking and exclusive attractions from around the country.
Internationally renowned creative director, Drew Anthony is determined to make Kaleidoscope a smash hit amongst the public here in Perth with the programme curated around the idea that You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world.
“ All of the artists we’ve secured so far are bringing extraordinary and inspiring installations to Western Australia. We’re really excited to showcase these to the general public, the art will appeal to all ages.” – Drew Anthony
